crafty book giveaway


Is anyone out there looking for some fun new crafts to try? Well, we have a great giveaway for you today. We are giving away 5 crafty books. Yep. 5. Pretty awesome, right? So listen up if you want to be the winner of all 5 of these fabulous books!


The first book we are giving away is Zodiac Felties. This is a craft book for creating felties representing each of the twelve zodiac signs plus four planetary figures: Mars, Venus, the sun and the moon. These would be so fun to make!

The second book is Noah's Knits. This is the story of Noah's Ark with patterns for 16 knitted projects. This would be great to use with your kids for a fun activity and learning.

The third book is Knits for Nerds. This book has 30 projects inspired by popular shows and books in science fiction, comic books, and fantasy. Wouldn't some husbands love to see you make these crafts?

The fourth book is Puppet Play. It has 20 puppet projects made with recycled mittens, towels, socks and more! This is so fun for the kids and is also a great way to use up those old items that are hanging out around the house.

The last book we are giving away is Beasties: How to Make 22 Mischievous Monsters That Go Bump in the Night. I know my boys would love this book! It features instructions on how to make 22 monsters using simple materials, such as scrap fabric and thread.

We know you will have so much fun with these books and your kids would love to join in on the crafting! To enter to win these 5 crafty books, leave a comment telling us which book you would be most excited about winning.

For a second entry, you can go vote for us on the list of Top 25 Creative Moms-2012. You'll have to scroll down to find us in the list. It's the last day to vote, so you better hurry on over there! Especially since we can only count this entry today because then voting will be over.
