I have a pretty big announcement today, and it involves bragging on my good friends, Morgan Huneke, and her sister, Rebekah Huneke, for a little bit! I met Morgan and Rebekah when I was about six years old; after I had moved to Cartersville. Since then, our lives became pretty interwoven. We were a part of the same homeschool group, volunteered on the same political campaigns with our families, we were in the same home church group, went to the same balls and social dances, members of the same bible study groups...then later, leaders in the same groups and so on......Through the entire time that I have known them though, I have noticed they are always in creativity mode. Whether it be with yarn, a sewing machine, constructing words into stories, or a good memory, they keep their hands the very opposite of idle. The talent that both of those young ladies have always been inspiring to me! I can't even hem a skirt properly to save my life.
Morgan emailed me a while a back and informed she was releasing another book, but this time a picture book; a little different from the novels that she had published recently. ...And with Rebekah as the illustrator! I was beyond excited, but even more so when she asked me if I'd be a part of her cover reveal scavenger hunt. So, friends, check it out! I heard there is a prize/give away involved......see the details on Carrie Mouse and the Giant Garage below and help share the love!
Here is a piece of the cover of Carrie Mouse and the Giant Garage ,you'll have to go to 9 other blogs to find all of the pieces to be entered to win the prize. Have fun searching!
