I’ve always loved the concept of giveaways and have wanted to do one for a long time, but wasn’t sure what I could give away. Then a couple weeks ago Mary Ostyn of Owlhaven offered me a couple of review copies of her fabulous book, A Sane Woman’s Guide to Raising a Large Family, and I decided that this was the perfect opportunity for a giveaway.
I am a huge fan of Mary’s blog and think that her book is a wealth of wisdom for all parents (not just those with large families!), and even has a lot of life management wisdom to offer for people in any busy phase of life, whether or not they have kids. I’m also throwing in a $25 gift certificate to Target as a little extra reader appreciation gift from me. (Sorry it’s only $25, y’all. After the recession my giveaways will be much more fabulous.) So here’s the scoop:
What I’m giving away
An autographed copy of A Sane Woman’s Guide to Raising a Large Family and a $25 gift certificate to Target.

My hope is that everyone will discover some great new blogs to read through this contest. Every week I delight in catching up with everyone through their 7 Quick Takes posts, and I wanted to use this giveaway as an opportunity to encourage others to see how much fun it is to “meet” other people by reading their seven random thoughts each week.
