Everyday Confetti ~ Give Away!!!!!!!

Everyday Confetti by Karen  Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer

Everyday Confetti by Karen Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer

Updated 1/21/2014 7:15 PM – Congratulations to our winner — Noreen Messmer – submitted comment on 1/17/14!

I am super excited about this new book EVERYDAY CONFETTI written by two friends — Karen Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer. I admire both of these women, each for their own unique reasons. This book they co-authored together is just icing on the admiration cupcake!

Really, they had me at the title — Everyday Confetti!! I would love to make everyday a little special for my family. This book shares very do-able and fun ideas to make everyday extraordinary for those you love. It also contains easy and inspired ideas for birthdays, milestones and holiday celebrations! Here is how Karen and Glynnis put it:

“The calendar is filled with special occasions and holidays that certainly call for a little confetti. But what about ordinary days? Those seemingly routine days when the calendar doesn’t indicate an occasion to buy a card, bake a cake or toss some confetti? By bringing a little confetti to an otherwise ordinary day, we can make it a celebration. A celebration of life, of each other, and, most importantly, of God’s goodness.

Our desire with this book is to spark your creativity and provide you with ideas for planning and implementing wonderful holiday and holy day celebrations with your loved ones. But we don’t want to stop there. We hope that with a little ingenuity and a slight shift in your spiritual perspective, you will learn to toss a little confetti into the everyday too — to be on the lookout for days and ways to make the ordinary extraordinary.” – Karen and Glynnis

Everyday Confetti is my newest favorite read! Karen and Glynnis speak part of my heart, and I love the ideas and recipes inside the pages of the book! I am already planning on giving this book as gifts with a package of confetti!!! I am honored to have two contributions in the book on pages 35 and 53. I hope you will take a look!

And I would like to do the same for one of you visiting here!! Just leave a comment, including your contact information, and you will be entered to win Everyday Confetti and a supply of confetti!!!
