A Very Bloggy Giveaway!

It’s the Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway! Shannon, of Rocksinmydryer, came up with this idea and it’s going to be a blast! There are a bunch of bloggers that will be GIVING AWAY great stuff this week! Make sure and stop by Shannon’s blog to check out the Mr. Linky links to all the sites that are participating.

I am holding a drawing for a brand stinking new copy of “Altered Books Workshop.” This book shows you how to transform old books into one-of-a-kind pieces of art! In this book, you receive detailed instructions for the newest craft craze–altered books–which combines bookmaking, collage, journaling, rubber stamping, papercrafting, stitching, embellishing and much more.

All you gotta do is leave a single comment (duplicates will be deleted) telling me what your favorite hobby is, and your general location (state or country). It will be fun to learn more about you! You must provide a valid e-mail address, but you do not have to have a blog. International participants are welcome.

I’ll be collecting comments through until Thursday night at midnight (CST). On Friday, July 27th I’ll hold the drawing and announce the winner! Good luck and thanks for playing!

(If you want to host your own giveaway at your blog, and link up with our fun little carnival, please read through the guidelines HERE .)
