handmade home giveaway




In celebration of the fact that it's quite simply FRIDAY- I will be giving away a copy of the incomparable Amanda Soule's Handmade Home!

If you didn't read the little story about how I came to acquire an extra copy of this fabulous book, you can read it here. The happy ending to it being that one of my lucky readers will win a copy along with a few other little bits and bobs to get them started with their handmade journey.

Amanda Soule is an inspiration to us all, and her second book, Handmade Home is filled with easy, fun and practical ideas for the home, from rag rugs to book satchels to hot pads to printed t-shirts.

Just leave a comment below for your chance to win. Get an extra entry by mentioning this giveaway on your own blog or if you are blogless, emailing 3 friends encouraging them to enter the giveaway. Then, make sure to leave a second comment below. For a third entry in the draw make sure to subscribe to my RSS feed (you'll automatically have an extra entry if you are already a subscriber) and for one more chance (that's 4 entries!!) become a follower of ecoMILF. For every entry make be sure to add an additional comment below and please keep it honest, I will be doing my best to check up on everyone. International entries welcome.

Good Luck!! The winner will be drawn next Friday morning.

It looks as though your creative space is just bursting with gorgeous potential. Go sewjo!
I did the cloth wipes and used them successfully a little more than half of the time.
I can't wait to see the rest of your creations!

I have been waiting for this book from the library for so LONG (I'm like number one thousand and sixty nine on the wait list!). I would love to win, also because I can't buy any new books due the the 'challenge of the utmost kind -no new books are allowed!)

I will pop this on my blog, since it's open to international entries.
I'll come back and let you know.

Thanks for the chance!
