Our very first giveaway!!
I am so thrilled to be announcing our very first NO UGLY DUCKLING giveaway! Because of the incredible interest and response I received from all of you after I wrote my post on “How to Sew a Button,” author Erin Bried, who is also a Senior Staff Writer at SELF magazine, has generously given us a SIGNED (!) copy of her latest book, “How to Build a Fire: And Other Handy Things Your Grandfather Knew.” It’s a great companion piece to “How to Sew a Button” and quite the resourceful guide full of how-to tips and sage advice from grandfathers. My favorites include: how to strip wooden furniture, how to bounce back after failure, how to navigate office politics, how to find self-confidence, and how to write a love letter.
Here’s just a few of the glowing reviews:
“A step-by-step guide to (almost) everything the hard-working, self-sufficient Greatest Generation learned about life and living.”—Chicago Tribune
“Don’t pass up How to Build a Fire…it’s [full of] knowledge our grandfathers seem to possess in abundance – life skills that made them such stand-up guys.”—The Houston Chronicle
“How To Build a Fire is fascinating, humbling and humorous.”—The Chicago Sun-Times
Now… how to win this wonderful prize? Just like our Facebook page or become our Twitter fan by this Friday, February 4th at 5pm PST and a lucky winner will be randomly chosen! Good luck everyone!
