Bloggy Giveaway Carnival~ Winter '08

Bloggy Giveaway Carnival I know you're just here for the free stuff, but I'd love for you to stick around or visit again. This is my place to write about stamping, crafts, prayers, my family, and my journey as I try to simplify my life in 2008. I have two other blogs, also- one is my cooking blog, Too Many Recipes, and the other is my weekly meme for all kinds of paper crafts, Sunday Scrappin. I think that one of the best things about blogging is finding new people with shared interests. Bookmark me and come back sometime when you're not out frantically entering a zillion giveaways! ;)

So, on with the show. I'm giving away a copy of the mystery book "The Crossword Connection" by Nero Blanc. It's a neat book if you enjoy crossword puzzles. The cover says "Solve the puzzles, solve the crime!"


The fine print: To enter, leave me a comment below about the best book you've read lately. I love to read, and I'm always looking for new books that will inspire me or make me laugh. I'll be looking forward to your comments! (*If your comment only says "enter me" or something like that, it won't count as an entry!*) Sorry, but I'm only able to ship within the USA. Also, if you don't have a blog, be sure and leave your email address with your comment. Entries will close Saturday, February 2nd, at 11am.

Have fun this week with the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival- I know I will! :)

  25. Hi Amy! I've been reading Embrace Grace, which is what I'm giving away over on my blog. I like the way Liz Curtis Higgs writes, as if she's talking directly to you instead of a faceless, nameless person.
    I like mysteries and crosswords, but if I were to win, I'd have to hide it from my family! They all love them too!
