give-away: Craft Hope

Can you believe I have another fantastic give-away for you today?! Tis the season to make & to give and Lark Books has generously offered a copy of Craft Hope to one of you. If you're looking for a jump start on your holiday making, this book is chock full of wonderful and very do-able projects. Each one is linked to a charitable organization so that you can keep making and giving all year long. This is a crafting book like no other: filled with soul, steeped in compassion, and loaded with inspiration.  Author, Jade Sims, did an amazing job of compiling some really thoughtful projects from a cast of wonderful designers. I still have to pinch myself to believe that I was included. Yes, I'm especially partial to Craft Hope... seeing that a couple of my designs are tucked within the pages.  I'd love to know one of you had this in your hands so please leave a comment between now and Sunday night at 9 pm EST. I'll announce the random winner on Monday morning so that it can be shipped out super fast! Good luck, friends! Pin It
