giveaway: heart-felt holidays and more

Heart-Felt Holidays

Last month, I had the great pleasure of giving away a copy of a book that I got to be in: Heart-Felt Holidays! This is a super cute book, with something special for nearly every holiday you can think of. Even Groundhog Day, which is my project!

Heart-Felt Holidays

We're no where near Groundhog Day, but the funny thing is, this time of year is when you're more likely to see one of these critters. In fact, I saw one in my neighbor's yard the other day, and Kathy Sheldon, the author of this delightful book has seen a family of them near her! So we thought this would be a good time to giveaway another copy of the book. But this time...

The winner will receive Heart-Felt Holidays signed by Kathy Sheldon, plus my original Seeing Shadows Groundhog case...the one that is actually in the book!

Enter to win below, and in case you don't win, I'd like to tempt you with a few extra pics of the book:

These are a couple projects to go with some upcoming holidays. There's plenty of time to order the book and get making before Father's Day and Independence Day! With all of the projects included, it really is a bargain. Find it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Thanks so much to Kathy and Amanda at Lark Books for creating this lovely book!

  4. My favorite not so big holiday is Memorial Day. It is still big but not like Christmas or Thanksgiving. My husband and I both had dads that served in the military and we have had and continue to have very dear friends that are military. Memorial day is a wonderful day to remember the sacrifices made by so many to protect our country.

  9. My favorite not-so-major holiday is Saint Patrick's day. I don't know why...no one else I know thinks it's a big deal and I've never been out drinking green beer or anything (I'm not 21 for a couple more weeks)...but something about it just makes me smile.

  14. Is the fourth of July considered a not-major holiday? I have so many memories of sitting on a quilt on the hill outside a church in town, listening to Ray Charles sing "America the Beautiful" over the loudspeakers and watching fireworks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love the fourth of July. It is near my birthday and it felt like all the fireworks were for me.

  21. My favorite low key holiday is Labor Day. It is a nice break, and that is all it is, a break. I don't have to feel guilty about not going to any parades, or sending cards, or decorating my house! :) Aileen Bell aileenbell@cox.net

    ReplyDelete
  24. My favorite not-so-major holiday is definitely either Earth Day or Veteran's Day. I just think that they're both really good holidays that we learn a lot from, and lots of people really downplay their importance!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hm, my favorite not-so-major holiday...I actually really enjoy Memorial Day! Camping, grilling out, and the weather is usually perfect! (knock on wood!)
