Hi friends, If it's Monday, it must be giveaway day. I had a record-breaking response to last week's contest - a whopping 68 comments! Wow. I'm glad to see I'm not the only person who's thinking about Christmas in July. (Actually doing anything about it in July is another story, of course...) Without further ado, our winner is: Lucky number 57 is Debbie W., a crafter after my own heart, who writes: Congratulations, Debbie! Keep an eye on your inbox for an e-mail from me. This week I've got another new book to give away, and I think it's perfect if you've got a kid in your life who might be about to succumb to a bad case of mid-summer "I'm bored!" syndrome. Green Crafts for Children: 35 step-by-step projects using natural, recycled, and found materials by Emma Hardy is chock-full of the sort of crafts that I loved when I was a kid – if you ever spent hours making things out of old cardboard boxes or fashioning pine cones into prickly pets, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Clothespin dolls, friendship bracelets, homemade playdough...there are lots of projects here that would brighten up a rainy afternoon at the cottage or a occupy a day when it's just too hot to run around outside. To enter, leave a comment on this post by Friday, July 24 at 5 p.m. detailing your favourite summertime craft (as a kid or an adult, whatever works). I'll post a winner a week from today.
