hand in hand…with free ornaments for any season

The timeline of publishing a book is always daunting.
Two years ago I was asked to contribute to a really cool book about blogging moms.  And today I’m finally sharing it with you!  (Not the same as insta-satisfaction from a blog post.  But seeing something printed in book form is pretty awesome).The book is called Hand in Hand: Crafting with Kids by Jenny Doh.  And….it pretty much had me at the cover.  From the splashes of color, to the embossed dots and title, to Owen’s little face at the top?!….all so cute.The book is about moms who blog, why they blog, how they balance family life, and how they inspire creativity in their kids.  I was humbled to be asked to participate (and it was a good excuse to have photos taken with my kids by local photographer Rachael Penman.)And, I was totally shocked to open the book and find me and Owen sitting there on the front page.  It’s weird to be in the pictures when so often I’m taking them.
It’s a treat to read through the designers’ pages, to see how our creative brains relate to each other.  From one mom to the next we all have so much to share and laugh about.

And at the end of each feature, the designer shares a project as well.  How cool is this lampshade and photo? (by Carly of Nest Studio)There are 20 different Bloggers and projects.  Soule Mama….The lovely Maya of Maya Made and Kristin of Maine Momma:And look, there’s Merrilee of Mer Mag (who just had a baby this week!).
I love that Owen popped into my photos right at the “boy” pages.Somewhere in the middle of the book are a few pages about our family….I’m so happy one of my favorite quotes made it in the book:
“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.  No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.  We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty.”Dieter F. Uchtdorf
In a few pages I share part of who I am, embracing motherhood, and a list of rainy day crafts.  Then the kids and I made Ornaments for Any Season!
With potato stamps, paint, muslin, and twine we made little ornaments to hang around the house (or on doorknobs) all year long.   More info in the book….Also in the book, right after me, is….the same yellow sweater.  Haah!
Too funny.
And thank you Target.
Okay. Since I’ve gabbed on and on about Hand in Hand….would you like to try it out?
Today we’re giving away 2 copies of the book, PLUS I’ll throw-in some ornaments.  So….

    Would love to win the book or some cute ornaments! My kids are big, but I have my grandkids who would love to create with grammy!

  882. 966) Danita Courtney

    Wow! I opened my e-mail this morning and saw your heading; boy did that get my attention! I have only been following you a short while, but I have to tell you many of your projects have inspired me to try new things, improve my personal skills and even lifted my self esteem. I am motivated to help others as I believe you have helped me! Thank you so much!
    A book would be lovely, but just knowing you are doing what you do is reward enough for a grandmother like me! I miss the little things you talk about, and my grand child is so far away. However, SHE is the reason I started sewing and crafting again and I like your style so I share it with my little granddaughter and sometimes I even get pictures! I’ll share when I get a good one!

    Dana – your quote could not be any truer – I feel my happiest during and after my creating time which is the time that always gets cut due to other obligations from job and family. I love to read your blog and have made your simple skirt for my niece since my daughter is a teenager and declared she is too old for a twirly skirt (gasp!!) But you have inspired me to make some dresses for her. We found a pattern at Joann’s and are adapting it to fit her vision. Can’t wait to really get into this project now I just need time!! Thanks for all your inspiration!
