Mrs. Tips First Giveaway! Second attempt...

Apparently I don't know two cents about doing a giveaway. It's been 6 weeks since I first posted about my first giveaway. Six weeks later and aside from my own comment there has only been one other comment to that original post and my number of followers or fans on both Google and facebook have consistently stayed at 25 on Facebook and 14 on Google. I guess I'm still on the learning curve of what it means to be a blogger!

First of all, let me tell you how awesome Amanda's book is! When I first read it I thought to myself, "Great.... one more thing I 'need' to do to be a good mother." But then I realized upon pondering it and re-reading it that the thought came to me that the way Amanda nurtures her children's creativity isn't the 'only' way to do it - she just has some great ideas about making materials and projects available to her children to foster and nurture their innate creative ability. What I've really taken away from her book is the importance of finding whatever outlet helps you feel 'centered' or at peace as a wife, mother, sister, friend, aunt, or grandmother and doing that on a daily basis. Whatever you start doing for yourself will naturally influence what you do with and for the children in your life.

So here you go, new rules to my giveaway (which is still going to be for the book, The Creative Family by Amanda Blake Soule.

Initial entry: leave a comment as to how you try to encourage creativity in your own life/family OR what you do on a daily basis that helps you feel centered and at peace.

Recently upon realizing I might lose my sanity, I decided I would do a little sewing everyday, even if its only one edge of a blanket. It's really rewarding to finish creative projects even bit by bit.
