Baby Bliss = Joy Rising!

This post is dedicated to Kim Diehl

1 Universe, 9 planets, 204 countries, 809 islands, 7 seas and I had the privilege of meeting YOU. 

It’s time to celebrate my newest book on my blog. The blog that has been quiet for some time now. I hope you will join me and celebrate this book that has so much meaning for me. The biggest of course is the joint celebration and writing of the book. Kim and I became Grandmothers together. As if that wasn’t spectacular enough Martingale is publishing our collaboration of projects in one fantastic book! This book and the fun we had together has given me a friend for life… Miz Diehl, I will remain forever grateful.

Baby Cover

Our book is fun and packed  full of projects for ANYONE who wants to make a special gift for baby. The opportunities for gift giving and nursery decorating are endless. Plus Kim and I get to show off our GRANDS!

 I will keep this post short because after all  it IS a give a way and that is the gift from me to those of you reading my post.
