Celebrating and a Giveaway


This freelance writing gig thing is a lot of fun! A lot of work, but a lot of fun.

The latest issue of Mark Lipinksi's Christmas 365 includes a few articles from me. Considering that one was on New Year's dishes for the many different New Year celebrations - recipes included! - I thought it only appropriate that I share it now. It is right around Chinese New Year after all. Gung Hei Fat Choi!

This issue also includes a piece on Holiday disasters. Some very funny stories from some quilty friends in their too. Thanks Jacquie, Katie, Rossie, and Jen for sharing.


I'd love to send a copy along to one of you, my faithful readers and supporters on this journey of mine. Leave a comment between now and Sunday night (Feb 6), midnight MST. I'll send a copy of Christmas 365 to one lucky reader. Make sure you include your email or have it set so I can reply to you.

Have a great weekend!

Can you share your tips on getting some gigs like this? I don't want to steal them, I just want to get a few so I can work from my house and possibly make some extra cash ... any ideas? I've done some freelance writing before, but I definitely need to expand my horizons! Love reading your blog!
