When Jo Writes

Jo Packham wrote me last week to see if I 
wished to give away a couple books
from my blog.
Of course, I would love to, 
and they arrived today!

When Jo came to shoot my studio for 
WWC magazine, she also got 
lots of shots for this book. 
I was thrilled to meet her and yes,
Jo is very special like everyone says.

This is a fabulous book;
25 organized women with 
loads of ideas to inspire.

I have two books to give away
and will draw two winners
a week from now.
Already own? 
It would also make a great gift,
so enter anyway.

We'll do the basic OK?
1 entry for commenting on this post
2 entries if you're also a follower
3 entries if you post about it
or put a link on your blog.
(please let me know # of entries in your comment)

Make sure I can contact you.

This is a good time to remind all those new 
to blogging about "no reply".
Your email must be IN your profile in order for 
any blog host to be able to respond
 to your comments or contact you.
Otherwise you appear to us as 
"no reply blogger".

Good luck to all

Closing at 4 pm pacific time Wednesday the 27th

Since I have a problem with maintaining organisation, I feel it appropriate for me to try and win a book of inspiration.

As you know I am a follower, so that's 2 entries already.

Would love a chance to win one of these books! Love the magazine. Now if only I could get my sewing room all organized and pretty at same time!
I am a follower also.

miss flibbertigibbet said...

First off....when you can even start a sentence with "Jo Packham contacted me...." You're WAY out of MY league!! LOL
Those books look wonderful and I am sure the lucky winner will just LOVE them.....I have no where to put them so you can skip over me!

Donna Reyne' said...

Hey girl!
I would totally like a copy of this book!
Mainly because you are in it and I usually buy everything you and Rebecca are published in. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.
So, I will wait until after your give-away and then, if I don't win I will head out and buy it!
Hope you are dong well,
Hugs and much love,
