200th post giveaway!

I've got a lil' giveaway to share with you today! A couple of books to celebrate my 200th post! Yay!
"Dance" is an 'American Girl'  book I've illustrated a while ago. Here it is... finally out in print!  If you have (or know) a young girl (7 to 10y.o.) that enjoys dancing - this book is for her! It's an introduction to dance. Leave me a comment and I will announce a couple of winners on Monday morning, September 15th.

P.S.: Thank you all for your help with my difficult pattern choice. I've chosen 6 (with your help) and am ordering a 1/2 yard of each. If you are curious... the choices are: 1,3,7,14,15&17. Boy, I really wish I could choose them all...

I think it's so important that you read to children almost immediately once they're out of the womb. And, to see your beautiful illustrations in a book that could be suitable for my daughter who loves to dance is awesome! I hope I am a lucky recipient.

Anne-Marie said...

Congratulations on your 200th post!! How awesome!! :)

I'm expecting for the first time at the end of the year and even though we didn't find out the sex, my intuition says it's going to be a girl! This book would be a great one to read to my tummy and keep for when she grows older.

Roo loves to dance, so I hope we win.

I'm glad my favorite fabric made it onto your final list! (although I had a hard time choosing) Great choices. :-) My daughter started dancing this summer - and now that's all life is for her. She LOVES it! I'm working on a ballet bag for her shoes tonight. :-)

Congrats on your 200th Post! Your work is beautiful. I'd love to give that book to my little half-sister- who is turning six and is the dancingest person i know. Her birthday is later this month and I think those pretty illustrations would go great with the dance party we are going to have for her!

Thanks again for the beautiful blog.

Hey, that's perfect, I have two girls that love to dance! ...And I live in a town where dance class means lipstick and pompoms......baton anyone? I think it's the college football culture here.
Anyway, I love your work and I'm so happy to see how often you are popping up all over the web these days - well deserved attention!

I know a little girl, my bf's niece. She hasn't had the best life, but I hope for her sake she doesn't understand what's gone on...She loves to sing & dance. I'm sure this would make a great book for her.

Congrats on your 200th post.

7 & 17 are sure to be big sellers!!!! Love 9, too, but it's not on the lsit.
