3rd Annual Birthday Book Giveaway!

November 23, 2010, 08:35 am  Posted by Craft Your Life Team

vickiehowellOver the past few years, giving away copies of some of my favorite craft books (generously donated by Sterling Publishing and Lark Crafts) on my birthday has become a tradition. I’m a gal who loves presents, especially giving them, so getting to do this every November 18th is a real treat! Well, today’s the day, and even though budget cuts have trimmed down how many prizes we can give, any of these titles (ahem, including my own ;-)) would make a fantastic edition to your crafty library! So, take a gander at the list, click on the links to read more about each book on Barnes&Noble.com (and if you should feel so inclined, hit “like” while you’re there), and post a comment (see, rules below) for your chance to win. Enjoy!
