~Miss Mustard Seed giveaway and Souvenir news~

I have been a longtime fan of Marian from Miss Mustard Seed.
She's not only creative and hard working, but totally down to earth and humble.
I love that about her.
She has recently released her very own book, and she would like to give away 3 copies here on my sweet savannah!
 According to Marian, design should both transform and inspire. With a lot of creativity and a little bit of effort you can transform your home into the beautiful space you have always dreamed of, without breaking the bank.

“Throw out the notion that good design is expensive, must be carried out by a professional and can only be bought in a fancy story,” Marian said. “I live in a real home on a thrift store budget and have never taken a design class in my life.”

Her debut book, INSPIRED YOU (Thomas Nelson, November 6, 2012, $19.99), details her exploration of the DIY world while reminding us that homes don’t have to look like a magazine ad to be beautiful and functional; beautiful homes start with an inspiration spirit and a willingness to try. Beautiful photographs, inspirational anecdotes and dozens of delightful doable ideas encourage women to run from the demanding cycle of everyday life and use their unique talents in their homes.

The day my copy came in the mail, I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down for an hour to devour every single page. After reading it, I loved her even more. You will be so inspired after reading this book!
~Just leave me a comment on this post~
I will pick 3 winners via random.org and announce back here on Friday.

In other news, Souvenir's holiday issue came out today! 
Oh my goodness, it's a good one!
Make sure you go here to get your own if you haven't already.
xoxo
