Announcing the winner in the “turn your blog into a handsome book” giveaway


This is the back cover of the book I made for My Carolina Kitchen using the wonderful site, Blog2Print, who can turn your blog into a handsome, professional book. The front and back cover photos are of your own choosing. This photo is from a vegetable stall in a charming village in the south of France, Saint Remy de Provence, on Market Day. It brings back wonderful memories of our French vacation there and the fabulous foods of Provence.

I was fascinated to read your comments about who you would dedicate your book to. They told me a great deal about who you really care about and why you blog.

I am so pleased to announce that we have a winner for Blog2Print’s gift certificate of $40, to be used towards the purchase of your very own blog book. The winner is Donnie of New Blessing Everyday.

Donnie said, “I would dedicate the book to my grandchildren because they are the reason I'm doing it. Someday, since all the young are so technical, they may want to read what Grandma & Grandpa were up to during their later years.”

Congratulations Donnie. I really enjoyed meeting you and Don this fall in Asheville. I know you and your grandchildren will enjoy your book as much as I have mine. Please email me your address so I can send your information to Blog2Print and they in turn will send you your gift certificate.
