Want to Win a Handmade Journal and a Copy of My Book?

Writing books and magazines articles,  requires making a model of the project as an example.  Sometimes it also requires step-outs (projects in various stages of completion).   I have LOTS of models and step-outs and would like to share some of them with you.

I love February for many reasons.  Living in northern Illinois I like to think ahead to March, and spring being right around the corner.  It is also my birthday month and last year was a big number  for me.  One that  I was not looking forward to celebrating.   THIS year, I am very excited about my birthday, and would like to share my happiness with  all of you.  What better way then a giveaway!
