A Handmade Gatherings Giveaway

May 15th, 2014 § 11 comments

DSC_9251And so, to become even BETTER friends with you (Yes! It’s possible!), I’ve started writing a Mossy Monthly newsletter. Why should you subscribe? Here’s why: Because you’ll get detailed step-by-step instructions for hands-on earthy projects that you won’t see here on my blog. You’ll get announcements that you won’t ever want to miss, special offers and other generally neat stuff.

DSC_9263And… if you sign up for my NEWSLETTER before June 1st, you’ll be automatically entered to win a FREE COPY of Ashley English’s newly released beautiful book, HANDMADE GATHERINGS. This book is chock full of practical, creative and fun ideas for seasonal collaborative get-togethers. It is a wonderfully written book filled with fantastic photos and recipes for rhubarb buttermilk bread and quick pickled ramps and chocolate cherry hand pies and homemade root beer, and also tips for entertaining goodness like throwing cakewalks and making mulling spice sachets and homemade candles. And it can be YOURS.
DSC_9261I honestly don’t know how Ashley has time for everything she does, since, in addition to being a mom and writing her heart-stirring blog Small Measure, Ashley has also written THIS delicious book as well as an entire book series including THIS ONE (which I hope to someday have a need for)—all highlighting a mind-blowing mishmash of topics related to small-scale homesteading and environmentally sensible endeavors. Check out her blog where she chronicles her homesteading adventures including bee- and chicken-keeping, canning and preserving, and parenting small people in remote western North Carolina. From basic pie dough to cardamom apple butter, late-summer pickles, goat cheese basil frittata, homemade sunburn soothers and wildflower risotto—Ashley provides all the practical, hold-your-hand basics of the important smallish things in life.

    I use your blog as a jumping off point and inspiration for those times when I’m stumped as to what to do with my kids. That means about three days a week I’m here on your site. I’m certain this book would be GREAT inspiration as well! Thank you!!! Looking forward to your new newsletter!!!

  • Amanda says:

    Just found your blog through the artful parent. Wow!! Looking forward to your newsletter!

  • Dawn says:

    I may be too late for your giveaway but that’s OK. So excited to receive your newsletter. I am about halfway through your book and am staying up much too late each night as I can hardly bear to put it down. I have been reading it with a flashlight so as not to wake my boys and my husband has had to turn it off each night as I fall asleep with your book open over my face! Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful book. We live on a farm (where, I say, we have more dirt and poop than anything else) and believe whole-heartedly with everything you write about. Looking forward to reading more. Peace!
