"Followers Are Special" Giveaway!! Signed copy of The Artistic Mother or The Ultimate Cheapskate
It's been almost two months since I did a Followers Are Special giveaway...and I have a lot more followers now than then...thanks to all of you! I also wanted to celebrate my 300th post! This seemed like a great way to do it. :o)
Bless your little 'Pea Pickin' hearts!!
I have never met such a sweet bunch of ladies as you all. I just had to do something extra special for you...though it pains me to do it...cause I want to KEEP these two books. But you are worth it!
I'm going to give away two extra special books which are signed by the authors themselves to two very lucky winners.
The first is The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole.
I have been her friend for over seven years and I know that you will enjoy learning to create some beautiful things with her help. It doesn't matter if you think your are creative or not...with her book, you can be! I bought this copy, but I really want to help spread the word about her book, so I'm going to have to buy another copy for me. (Sniff...) I plan to work through the projects this summer and I'm sure I'll be posting pictures of my creations too. I can't wait to get started!!! I'm going to have an artsy crafty time..and you can too! Editors Note: Shona just emailed me and said I get to keep my copy! She is going to donate a signed copy for the giveaway!!Yippee!!
If you would like to see some of the projects...already made!! you will want to visit Trudy Callan at Artistic Creations with Trudy .She hosts an Artistic Mother's group who are working through the projects in Shona's book as we speak and you can see some of the beautiful things they are making..
The other book, for those of you who just feel you are not at all the artistic type, is
The Ultimate Cheapskate by Jeff Yeager.
He is the neatest guy and the absolutely most frugal man on the planet of the earth. His book will have you in stitches...because he is just hilarious. But the principles he shares on saving money and being frugal, and really taking better care of our resources, are fantastic.
Some great ideas from his book are ....Why not just 'skip' the money step? How about a Spending fast?? How much is 'enough'? These are striking questions!! I was stunned and shocked to finally read a book about Frugal Living that emphasizes LIVING over SPENDING...or even getting rich which is often a topic in books on saving money. He spent half a day with us after finishing a TV interview in downtown Houston. He gave me two signed copies, one of which I will never part with. But the other one, I am willing to give to one very lucky follower, just to get a chance to tell you about his NEXT book..."The Ultimate Cheapskate Next Door" which our family will be featured in! How exciting!!
Just a little warning...some of his humor is definitely for married couples only...so..be forewarned! :o) We were so desperate for a better perspective on our finances, that I read through it all without worrying too much about the humor. But the principles he shared were absolutely rock solid. And I appreciated it.
So, all you have to do to enter is ...

Extra votes if you leave a comment saying you have added me to your blog roll!
And TWO EXTRA VOTES if you sign up to follow me on facebook. This will help get the word out about my blog on Networked Blogs. I want to help more people, but can't unless they know I'm here. :o)
PLEASE LEAVE ONE COMMENT FOR EACH ENTRY...FOLLOWER, BLOG ROLL, FACEBOOK (counts twice). That will help me add more entries for your name. :o)
We will have two winners and they will get to pick based on whichever winner emails me first.
If you don't leave a comment, I can't enter you as I've noticed that followers are sometimes hard to find when it comes time to give them their gifts, unless they have been visiting recently.
