Are you on Instagram? I am…now! I finally entered the current decade and got a smartphone, so now I can be on Instagram. You can follow me if you’re interested in seeing what so far is mainly photos of my dogs. To celebrate my newfound Instagrammatical status, I’m doing a giveaway: rare, limited edition proofs of the Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) case cover (hard cover of the book) and jacket. Suitable for framing! Also a copy of the book, which I’ll sign if you want me to, and as many bookmarks as you need (as long as you don’t need, like, 1000). Check out the giveaway post on Instagram for info on how to enter — I’ll draw the winner next Tuesday morning (Sept. 27th, 2016).
Hi everyone! Summer is almost here, a time of…what was it? Sun? No. Sand? Heavens no. Surf? Oh please.
A time of READING! Everyone knows summer is time to sign up for your library’s summer reading program, and making yourself a nice sturdy book fort to read your way through. So many great books to tackle!
Need some help starting that fort? Enter below for a chance to win a signed copy of my picture book, Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book). It’s just right for silly summertime fun, plus Everyday Reading says it’s worth getting up early for, and Scary Mommy says you won’t mind reading it 957 times at bedtime, so maybe it’ll be the only book in your book fort, and that’ll be just fine.
Hey! All of you who missed out on the last Savoring Maine Calendar giveaway! Stacey is having one of her own! Head on over to her excellent new blog and try to guess what restaurant she was photographing yesterday. First correct guess gets the calendar! Hurry!
Don’t despair if you didn’t win! Just go get the calendar for yourself! You can buy it through the Savoring Maine Calendar website, at the stores listed on the blog, or from Amazon.com. Mmm. Blueberry buttermilk pie…
Hey everyone! Don’t forget to leave a comment by midnight tomorrow (Sunday) so you have a chance to win one of two Savoring Maine calendars!
Hurray! I have not one, but TWO Savoring Maine calendars to give away, thanks to Stacey’s generous donation. I am so in love with the gorgeous photographs in this calendar. I would love it if it only had the photos, but then! there are also recipes! I have three words for you: Blueberry Buttermilk Pie. Also: Sauteed Chard with Coconut. And: Pear and Cranberry Caramel Crisp. Also also: Fingerling Potato and Arugula Salad with Fontina. There was another one, too…ah, here: Fiddleheads, Maine Shrimp, and Smoked Ham over Fettucine (though that one may call a bit more on very-Maine-specific ingredients than others).
One incredible photo per month, one tasty recipe per month, each month featuring a fabulous Maine ingredient, and every month sure to be enjoyed by everyone, no matter where you live.
I can’t recommend this calendar highly enough. The photos and design are beautiful. The recipes are mouth-watering and contributed by Maine chefs and foodies. And have I mentioned Blueberry Buttermilk Pie?
Then enter the giveaway! All you have to do is leave a comment to this post before midnight on Sunday, January 4. On Monday I’ll pick two winners and send your calendars out immediately. Good luck!
Pink shirt goes to Emily, blue onesie to Elizabeth. They’re going in the mail today! Congratulations!
Don’t forget to enter the World of Julie t-shirt giveaway by midnight tonight, if you haven’t already! Just leave a comment to be entered.
Fresh for the holidays, it’s giveaway time! Here’s your chance to get your own World of Julie shirt (ok, well, it’s not like it’s a shirt with “World of Julie” printed on it, but these are better than that). All of my shirts are printed on 100% cotton American Apparel shirts, and all Gocco-printed from images from a vintage Scientific American.
Up for grabs:
A blue 12-18 months onesie with a fabulous dino skeleton.
A big-wheel old fashioned bike on a pink size 4 shirt. (Do note that this is a small size 4.) (Actually, I find American Apparel shirts to be small in general.)
Hurray! So all you have to do is leave a comment below saying which style you’re interested in, from now until Thursday, December 20, at midnight. I will randomly pick one winner for each shirt, and will send the shirt out Friday, so you should actually be able to get it in time for Christmas if you live in the U.S. Spread the word!
You can see some more shirts at my Etsy shop. I also have a little inventory right now, so if you’re interested in a particular size, ask (I’m not making any new shirts at the moment, but I have at least one shirt in each of the sizes listed in my Etsy shop).
