Recently that included this post about Organizing Small Spaces. I borrowed this book from a department of my work (www.imom.com)'s resources and I started reading. My review of the book and was really my way of passing on to you something that grew me as a homemaker. It was completely unsolicited....
So you can imagine my surprise when I woke up last Thursday morning to an e-mail saying 'Kathryn Bechen' has left a comment on your blog. I thought, 'no way....', but yes way, the very author I had praised on the blog had found my post and responded! She wrote:
Thank you for so thoroughly reviewing my book, Small Space Organizing, on your blog. I am so happy you enjoyed it and found it useful and your insights into what you liked about it were very helpful to me as an author. Great job on your purging! Wishing you happiness, beauty, and order at home always, whatever the size of your space! I have a newsletter and blog, so hope you will join me there at www.KathrynBechenInk.com. :)
Sincerely, Kathryn Bechen, Author

Isn't she darling? Better still I realized later in the morning on my drive to work that she had also sent me an e-mail to blog's e-mail account. I was so honored she'd found my blog and taken the time to not just read what I wrote about her book and respond but in her second e-mail (after my reply) she told me about several of the posts on my blog she'd read and why she enjoyed them. She even mentioned that she would love to send me an autographed copy of her book for my 'reading corner' which I showcased last week after finishing it.
If all of this isn't exciting enough, her second e-mail said she'd love to give you all (my readers) something as well! So, Kathryn has graciously agreed to give not just one, not two, but THREE of my readers a signed copy of 'Organizing Small Spaces' as well! Now, the tough part about this is that I have to pick the winners! So here's the scoop. If you're truly interested in getting your small space organized and you think this book could be a life-changer for you, we want you to have it! So, comment below and tell myself (and Kathryn who might be stopping by to read what you all write as well) why you need the book. You could tell us what your small space is like, a problematic space issue your place has, and/or what you most hope to learn from the book.
You have until this coming Friday 6/8 to get your comment in, as I will pick the winner Friday night and announce it on Saturday.
In the meantime, feel free to read what I wrote about her book and checkout her website as well: www.KathrynBechenINK.com
Good luck, I can't wait to read your comments and a special thank you to Kathryn for this surprise giveaway!
