I used to wonder what it would feel like to wake up on the morning of my big book launch... to watch this thing I'd created go out into the world and you know, be free...
But I woke up the same way I always do...a little panicked and realizing I didn't make the kids' lunches last night. Worse, I'm out of jelly...and how do you make PB&J without the J?
On this, the morning of my book launch, I find myself wondering two things...
1. If I wear a long shirt, will anyone see the hole in the back of my yoga pants?
2. How do I properly say thank you to everyone who is a part of this amazing journey that I'm on?
I'm risking it with the yoga pants, but #2 still has me stumped. I don't have the words or the means to convey how I'm really feeling at this moment in my journey.
So, today, rather than get all sappy like I sort of feel like doing...I'm celebrating with A Sweethaven Giveaway...a virtual launch party to welcome this new book into the world...and friends, I'll be here all week...
Now...for the good stuff...
The story of Sweethaven centers around a faded scrapbook...one that's full of secrets and stories of years gone by...so today, I'm celebrating with a scrapbooking giveaway...and here's what you could win!
With its beachy, breezy feel, this collection reminds me of Sweethaven, a little cottage town right on Lake Michigan. It's perfect for scrapbooking vacation, summer days, or even non-themed moments you want to remember.
2. Unity Stamps
I LOVE Unity Stamps. And I love their BLOG! These beach-inspired stamps are a perfect complement to the Palm Beach collection, but could be used for so many fun scrapbooking and card-making projects!
And this one:
...is one of my favorites because I believe in creating yourself. In the book, Campbell learns this lesson for herself..and with a little help, she finally discovers how important it is...Both stamp sets are included in the giveaway!
It's FULL of gorgeous ideas and a copy could be all YOURS! (Lucky.)
4. 7 Gypsies Interchangable Certifiable Round Stamp (Hand Drawn Seals)
I LOVE these things. They're just SO cool. Don't you want to win one?
I'm excited this giveaway will include a spot in my upcoming workshop at Big Picture Classes. This topic has always been near and dear to my heart, and I'm thrilled I get to share ideas on ways to document your faith for future generations through Big Picture.
But I can't give you a spot in the class and not give you...
My first book. I'd love to send it to you.
This new line of journals, cards, totes and apparel will make its way into this online launch party...there are some CUTE things I can't wait to share...but for today, it's this journal that wants to come home with you. And I'm a sucker for a cute journal.
