I was pleasantly surprised a few days ago when I learned that I won Karen Witemeyer’s Writing Desk book giveaway on Tricia Goyer’s blog. I won her latest book, Stealing the Preacher, and I very much look forward to reading it soon!
But the real surprise happened when I received the book in the mail the other day. Not only did I receive Karen’s book, but she also blessed me with a some lovely trinkets that I was surprised to find when I opened the package. This surprise made me want to share what I received with you. Enjoy!
In this next picture are several trinkets. On the far left, you can see a recipe for Cinnamon Crisps, which is a treat that Meredith makes in Short Straw Bride. I have read this book in the past and it is my favorite from Karen Witemeyer. I can’t wait to make this recipe and share it with you! On the right side there are four bookmarks that are super cute! I don’t really have any bookmarks around, and I typically use a scrap piece of paper, so these will come in handy!
Of course, I also received the book, but what really made me happy was that Karen signed it! I have never had an autographed copy of a book before, and you should have seen how excited I was when I realized that she signed it! Very exciting!
Isn’t that neat!
With that said, I can’t wait to read this book, and I am so blessed by the gifts I received. Thank you to Karen Witemeyer for being so generous!
Sidenote: I start my new job tomorrow (!), so my blogging schedule will probably be sporadic for a few weeks until I get used to my new routine. Stick around, I have some great things planned for my blog!
