A Baby Bird and Altered Book Give Away .... Just Because

Happy Monday!
Was your weekend 
restful and productive?
I hope so. 
It's so good for the
 body and mind to 
take time to rest, relax and 
then get something done!

Do you feel just 
"all around better"
if you keep things 
in a balance? 
I do.

The weather is changing and many
of us are starting to focus
on outside projects.
That's always exciting
as well as a lot of hard work. 

We are working on an area
of our property that we
have had dreams about
working into something special!
I will be sharing about 
that in the future.

I know it's been a long, 
cold winter
for a lot of people.
It will be spring soon!
And...this is what 
we have to 
look forward to! Isn't it precious?
This is one of our Sugartree babies.
It's a little Fly-Catcher. 
You'd never know it but there 
are five of them in the nest. 
Those parent birds were
very busy!

It's always fun to win something.
And during the 
it was suggested that we
 have a giveaway.

However, I wasn't sure what to
 give and so I didn't have one.
But I thought of the books that
I had altered and decided
to offer one of those.

I have been wanting to host  
a giveaway for a while now.
I'm a gift giver for sure so this 
will be fun!

Here goes..
So, if you'd like
 to enter, just leave 
a comment. And if you're new
here, WELCOME! If you 
 find some encouragement 
or inspiration here, 
I'd love to have 
you follow along.

Here's the book that I
will send to you if 
your name is chosen.

The winner will be 
announced next Monday.
March 16th.
Thank you so much for stopping 
by and best wishes to 
all who enter!

I think your book is beautiful! I don't think I should be considered for the give away (although it would save on shipping!)So if you pick my name just draw again. I hope you get lots of comments!

Oh Tamara your Fly catcher baby (not even a fledgling as yet) is so special! And even more special is the fact that you can see the babies grow every day. I can experience the same thing just outside my studio window each year!
What a blessing that is!
As you know I love to create books and it is always a pleasure to see and appreciate the creative works of others who enjoy making similar things.
I just might get lucky!
Many thanks for offering us a chance!

Blessings and hugs..

Tamara, i am more then blessed to meet you and be inspirer by a captured glimps of your sugar tree baby here. It really is quite the reminder of his powerful works.
Thank you for hosting such a beautiful GiveAway and since I have a lot of words floating around in my head a journaling book would be a perfect gifting. Tamara, I don't want to be greedy here and being that I was just a winner of a wonderful piece of Michelle's GiveAway, if my name were chosen here I would love to pay it forward to another deserving blogger giving them the chance to fill that joy of Gifting. So could you pay it forward if I were to be chosen :)

As for you gracing your beauty and comment over at my place it brings me great joy filling my heart to know that beautiful bloggers out there add something special to ones days. Thank you dearly and I too am one of your newest blog followers and will so enjoy getting to know you better.
I took notice of you music list and family and I have to say I to a big fan of emmylou Harris, and Amy Grant have there play list store. And have listened to Amy since the late and early 70's-80's along with emmylou
Beautifully inspiring days ahead of you.


Tamara said...

Those babies were such a blessing to watch, Michelle. And to see the parent birds working so hard to take care of them is a miracle! Thank you for your visit and sweet words. Best wishes for your special day!


Tamara said...

It seems that we have a lot in common. Our love of beauty and working with our hands to create ... our lovely Hannahs and the music that we appreciate. Emmylou Harris has been a long ti-time favorite of mine. Thank you so much for your gracious words. I'm blessed to have such wonderfully inspiring followers whose spirits are so quick to encourage.
Thank you for spending some time here to leave a comment and for joining me in my journey of inspiration. I'm so blessed.

Best wishes for peace and I look forward to reading more of your soulful blog.
