    Oh my goodness. Winning this would like, just totally rock this momma’s (of 2, one 5yr old and one almost 2yr old, and I think the 2yr old may turn out to be an artist in this life, just saying, she can already hold a pen and marker properly, and no one showed her how…) world. I almost got a copy of the book back when they were giving out signed copies, but alas, because I wasn’t in the US, couldn’t get in on the free shipping/and promotion of it… sooooo need to just buy it already, or, maybe win it in this contest. Love the newsletters. Always recommending the blog and newsletters to people and other mommas (just sent it last night actually to my son’s kindergarten teacher who was also quite impressed by it!), and it’s become my go to when I need a craft idea (rather than hunting through pages and pages of websites). So. All of that said. I hope we win this <3
