Our Handprints are Published! Let's Celebrate with a Giveaway!

Near the end of last year I got an email from Lisa, senior editor at Thomas Nelson publishing company....the email was about one of our family projects that was pinned on Pinterest....

It is one of my all time favorite projects, and boy did it make it's rounds on Pinterest! It was so neat stumbling upon my little family's hand prints and seeing it pinned so many times!

It caught Lisa's eye, and she emailed to tell me that it would be perfect for a book written by Pastor Dave Stone called,  Building Family Ties through Faith, Love, and Laughter.

How exciting, right??
It didn't take me long to realize what a great opportunity this would be, how exciting that we will have such a great memory of our family doing this project together! 

There it is on page 11 !!

I'm still sort of amazed at the doors that God has opened for us this past year.... when things like this happen, it feels like a gentle reminder that I am doing what HE wants me to be doing...and that just makes me smile : D

And, how about this??
 When I sent in the paperwork for the release and tax info to Lisa, it turns out that we live in the same exact town...yep, out of all the pictures on Pinterest, she found mine and we are practically neighbors! Small World!

So...because I am so thrilled by this, and I love sharing what makes me happy with you....

It's Giveaway time!!
