Craft Hope

IMG_8386

It seems like ages ago that my neighbor, Marjorie, called with the exciting news that our friend Jade, founder of Craft Hope, had signed a book deal. Jade was looking for projects for the book; was I interested in contributing? Of course!

Within weeks, I had a project written up, completed, photographed, and shipped. I had almost forgotten about the whole thing when the book finally came out. I have to admit, it was a thrill to see my name in print. But even more thrilling was the entirety of the book, all the projects it contained, and the whole miracle that is Craft Hope.

The book came out at the same time I decided, for family reasons, to take a break from the internet. I missed the hype of the release, and I tucked away my extra copy to give away at a later date. Well, now is the later date. I have an extra copy of Craft Hope for one reader. And just in time for Craft Hope's Project 10 - Pick a Project. Pick any project from the book - or from your own crafty repertoire - and send it to the charity of your choice.

Leave a comment for a chance to win your own copy of Craft Hope, and I will announce a winner on Friday, December 17. 'Til then, I'll be busy crafting a little hope, a little magic, a lot of love, and, of course, a huge mess.

******************************

And the winner is Dianne At the Riverbend! Thank you all for participating in the Craft Hope giveaway!

  6. Hello!

    How did I miss the giveaway before this one?! Darn it all!

    Did I tell you that I was at the book store not long ago and I came across Craft Hope? I knew that Blue Yonder Stefani was in there but I did NOT know about you! Did I do a little jumping up and down and squealing in the aisle? Why yes, I did!

    Throwing my hat in the ring... and hello to you : )

  16. yay! more Molly! I have yet to get the book, but I think I should probably refrain from entering the giveaway, as I made out like a bandit on last week's.

  25. I drool over Craft Hope every time I'm in the book store. I just have a hard time buying something for myself...I usually walk out with something for my children. So I'd love, love, love to win a copy then I could get to work crafting things for others! Congrats on being in print...and thanks for a chance to win.

  33. How wonderful you had the opportunity to contribute to the book...it looks amazing! I didn't know there would be a book (I contributed to the Etsy shop way back when), and I'd love to create something for Pick a Project. Anyway, also wonderful is to see you in blogland again...I've been sort of in and out of it lately, myself.
    Wishing you all the very best from the Northeast (brrrrrrrr!!!)
