Win a Copy of The Artistic Mother

* This contest is now closed *

Go here to find out the winner!

The Artistic Mother has been released in the US a month before schedule. I want to inspire as many Moms as possible to fit creativity into their day, so I am giving away a free book.

If you want to win a copy of The Artistic Mother, simply do a blog/Facebook post about it sometime between now and Monday March 1.

*Leave a link to your post in THIS email*

In your blog post, simply
1) add the image of the book you can take off this post
2) add link to my blog (http://shonastudio.blogspot.com/)
3) add a link to a book store where it can be purchased, like Amazon (the cheapest option I think. Check this post for international options).

You can write your own post or borrow it from any of these post about the book. Your post can be as long or short as you wish, along as the links are there! (if you need help with links, let me know).

If you have already pre-ordered/purchased it at a bookstore or want to go ahead and order it today, you are still eligible to win ~ you can donate the 2nd copy to the library or give it to a friend or you can choose to get my Celtic inspired soldered charm bracelet:

Thank you for helping me spread the word!

    Congrats on getting your book published!

    <3 EMarie

  34. Happy to share - can't wait to read it!!



  35. Done! Here's a link to my post. Thanks for this opportunity!


  36. I think this is a great idea, writing about being a mother and being wildly creative! All too often, mothers give everything away to their families and leave no time for themselves. Put links to your blog and amazon on my blog.

  37. ohhh I would love to win this book!! I posted on my blog! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    Artful Blessings,

  40. Hi! I can't wait to receive a copy of this book :) I've posted (errr, will be posting...) to both of my blogs about your book.



    Oh, and congratulations on the publication of it :)

  41. Hi Shona,

    I put a photo of your book along with a link to your blog and a note that it can be bought at amazon.com on the side bar of my blog. :) Gotta spread the word -- good luck with your book (and good luck to me to win a copy). ;)

    Greetings from Munich,

  42. Done. Can't wait to start week one! Stampartspot.blogspot.com
    thanks for all you do. Blessings!

  43. I am so very happy for you! What an inspiration you are! I posted about your new book and put the link and picture on my sidebar. Good luck to you Shona, Kristin xo

  44. I totally would love to win a copy of your book! I blogged about it here.

    thanks for the chance!

  45. I think this is a wonderful concept for a book --and I am glad you have written on this. I crafted for over 25 years with my two children at my side and I ran a very successful at-home craft cooperative of 6 women who also had small children for over ten years. Creating was our sanity and our joy as well as our social outlet. We loved it and yes, it can be done long term. My group is all over 50 years of age now and our kids all grown and gone but we are STILL creating and being art-full. :) Bravo.

    I don't have a blog but I did post links on my Facebook. I would love to give this book to my daughter and 1 year old granddaughter. My daughter was just saying last night that she hopes her daughter will benefit from her creativity and that my daughter is not too busy to create beautiful things for Eliza! My e-mail is: englishgrad@sio.midco.net Love your site and your ideas! My post:
