Here's how to win:
Simply BUY an ebook of Searching For A Starry Night at ** B&N.com ** - and submit a review on the site. Email me (chrisATcverstraete.com) once your review is up. Your name will be entered for a chance to win a complete room in a bag kit.
(NOTE: I won't penalize you if you buy a print copy - either through Quake or at B&N.com, or even Amazon.com - but the same rules apply - you must put up a review and email me to let me know. See links above, or in side column of blog.)
Prize kit includes: 1 prepared bag, plastic insert, cut foam core board, back sheet of scrapbook paper, and a puzzle furniture kit! Enough furniture to make many rooms!! (Sorry US shipping only!)
Overseas winners: (Europe and UK Only) Instead of the full furniture kit, I will include enough furniture (punched out and bagged) to furnish the room. State which you prefer: bath, bedroom (full or twin bed), kitchen or living room.
** Even if you don't do minis, try a new hobby. Or give the kit to someone else or your kids/grandkids to try. It could be a fun family project too!**
