Finally I will be involved in another online event! It is next month and it's pretty exciting.  I am joining Adam of Roof Beam Reader and Allie of A Literary Odyssey in a Group Read and Paint Me a Book Giveaway!

Adam and I have discussed a Paint Me a Book” giveaway where he would offer readers of his blog prizes of books and I would create a painting inspired by that book to also go to the winner.  This has kept getting pushed off, mainly by my indecision about whether books that I feel I could create a good painting from would also be attractive as prizes to his blog readers.  We’ve also been delayed because there has been so much going on in my life that painting has slipped to the back burner (along with another of my favorite pastimes: reading).  But when I saw the books Allie chose for October Group Reads, Dante’s Inferno and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, I became really excited.  Here is my motivation to read two books that have been on my list for a long time and I think there are some really fun painting possibilities.  

Instructions can be found on Adam’s blog, but to sum up, Adam will be offering up two October / Halloween-themed books (not the Group Read books) to go along with the paintings – so two winners (participants in the Group Read) will end up winning one book + one painting.  If you want to sign-up for the Group Read and thereby have a chance at winning one of two books + original paintings, head to THIS POST and claim your spot.  Hope to see you there!

  3. Hi Shannon! Checking out the links from this post soon ... but was just reading an older post by you re: the little temporary addition to your family. That is so way cool that you and your husband are watching that little munchkin. YOU are way awesome! Children take up so much time, but helping to raise a little person is an extraordinary thing! Hope everything works out for all.

  4. Thank you so much! I have a couple ideas for the painting for Dracula so we'll see how that works out. As far as taking care of the little boy, he brings us a lot of joy and we're thankful for the opportunity to be part of his life. He is a lot of work though and has turned our household upside down!
