The heart project: a hearts and craft collaborative ebook

This is an amazing project put together by Jamie over at Hands on: as we grow and I am very pleased to be included along with all the other 70+ bloggers who have contributed over 100 heart ideas and activities for this very special ebook. Be sure to read this entire post so you can find out how to get your own copy of the heart book and join in on the many different give-aways and auctions going on between now and February 14th!
