Giveaway day!



GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
Winners!

Sew, Mama, Sew gift certificate:
SewLindaAnn

Electronic copies of Snarky and Sweet:
cradke
bethandodd
jaya
texheks
javede

Congratulations! I'll be sending emails shortly (after I feed the baby). I've loved all the comments -- everything from sweet statements about having already achieved life dreams to be wives and mothers, to amazing goals like growing your own food or opening businesses. The most poignant were acknowledgments that sometimes our goals change -- we choose the greater good. Best of luck with all the other giveaways, and thanks for lifting my spirits!

I'm giving away $30 at Sew, Mama, Sew! as part of their semi-annual giveaway day madness. Check out all the other amazing stuff!

This year has been a very exciting one for us. My husband and I bought a small business early in the year. We now own Alcor PetroLabs, located in Fort Worth and San Antonio. It's a culmination of one of my husband's life-long dreams. In the time that I've known him, everything he's done in school and his career has been with the aim to own his own business someday. And it's going fabulously well. He loves it, his employees love it, and so do the customers. It makes a huge difference at home to have a happy husband and father. So proud of him.

Elsewhere in the family, this year has brought us a quilt in the Quilt National show, one of many amazing goals my sister Naomi Adams has completed recently. My little sister Georgia Leigh had her sixth child and continues to homeschool, run a fabulous online shop with PDF patterns (check her out this week, her giveaway is fab), and is currently selling her house to move closer to us! OK, so they're moving because of a job, but the closer to us part is very exciting.

And my dear mother has finished a life-long dream of having a book published. I don't think she expected to wait until she had 10 grandchildren to complete this goal. I don't think she expected this particular novel to be the first one published. She works hard, running a shop with vintage patterns, working as a reporter for a local newspaper, and writing novels. I hope she publishes many more. In honor of her, I'm also giving away a few copies of the electronic copy of her first book, Snarky and Sweet. It's clean and fun, a fabulous holiday read for anyone. Think classic Elizabeth Peters or Georgette Heyer, but featuring a Texas schoolteacher.

To enter and win $30 at Sew, Mama, Sew or a copy of Snarky and Sweet, please just leave a comment! If you want to tell me about your life-long goal, go for it. (Mine? PhD.) But any comment gets an entry. If you win an e-book, I'll let you choose Kindle or Nook format. (Kindle e-books can be read on your computer.) Giveaway open until midnight December 16th, winners chosen randomly.

Good luck and enjoy Giveaway Day!

My dream is to someday use my foreign language skills to become a literary translator.

Glad it's been a good year, lots of milestones for you. I love Elizabeth Peters. I have a Kindle. I'm living my dream right now, kids all married and being productive citizens,several live here in town so I have grandchildren to be with, finished up several obligations and now I have time to sew, read and visit. I even lost weight so I feel healthier and am able to do more. I still want to travel. Thanks for the giveaway.

Wow, I wish my sister was moving closer to me. Lucky.
My goal? I'm in school right now, but that's just for a job, not my love. If I could do what I love, I would own a sewing/knitting/fabric shop and have all these brilliant and creative ideas that other people implement. I am not a self starter, but I have so many ideas. But I'll be happy with a job that supports my habits in any case!
