So how's this year been treating you? Have you stuck to your goals this year so far? Do you need a little treat? If so, you are in luck! I'm giving away some great things this weekend!
First up is a crafty book by Carol Sterbenz called Homemade: The Heart and Science of Handcrafts. I first met Carol through Twitter (follower her: @MakeItHomemade) and we have so much crafty stuff in common! She, like me, is into more then one craft...and this book is a great asset to anyone who considers themselves crafty or who wants to become crafty. It's thick & hard-backed! 773 pages!!!
Carol told me it was her labor of love and I think it was totally worth it! It covers crafts such topics as: beading, floral arts, paper crafts, hand printing (stamping, stamp/block making, stenciling, screen-printing, etc), decoupage, decorative embellishing (glass etching, gilding, dry embossing, ribbon & trims, decals & heat-transfers, candle making & decorating, etc.) and kids arts & crafts. And it includes a bunch of patterns as well.
You can peek inside the book on her website....but I'll tell you right now that besides the wealth of information inside this book, I love the quotes she uses at the beginning of each chapter.
Carol's publisher has already sent me two copies of the book...one for me & one to giveaway...so you'll be receiving this directly from me.

Prize fulfillment will be done by both myself (for the book) and SheyB. I will provide the sponsors with the winner's name, postal address, and email address. I received a review copy of this product.
