It's Give-Away Day!!!

Yes, the day is finally here! In conjunction with the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog, I am participating in Give-Away Day. Sew, Mama, Sew! has the list of participating blogs so you can go there and find all the give-aways that are offered today all over blogland. Each participant is giving away a hand made item. There are a lot of talented bloggers out there, so this should be loads of fun!

I am offering this cute set of mom and daughter aprons made from coordinating fabrics. And lucky you, if you win, you also get a copy of The Mother In Me--Real-World Reflections on Growing into Motherhood.




The book is an anthology of beautiful writings on the experiences of mothering young children. The jacket says: "The experiences shared in The Mother in Me will make you laugh and cry and hold tightly the little ones in your life."

Why am I giving this book away? Well, one of my talented sisters' poems are published in this book, and she gave me a signed copy during our Thanksgiving visit. So since I already had a copy, I am sharing it with you. (I'm keeping my signed copy! :o) ).

This giveaway is open to everyone, I will ship internationally. So just leave a comment today by midnight USA-Pacific Standard time, and on Thursday morning I will randomly choose a winner. Good luck!
