Giveaway: Reinvention

Did everyone have a nice weekend?  I spent three whole days decluttering the house, recharging my batteries, and paling around with my husband.  It was divine… except that I missed my little ones like crazy (even more than I expected).  More details to come but first I wanted to congratulate Julie and Marci, the two winners of last week’s rolled canvas print giveaway.  If you don’t happen to be Julie or Marci, I have good news, there’s another fabulous giveaway starting today!

I received my review copy of Reinvention last week and was so, so impressed.  I knew Maya (of maya*made fame) would deliver up some lovely upcycled projects but I didn’t expect so many of them to appeal to my largely non-sewing sensibilities.

The hardbound book contains 28 projects involving sewing (and to my delight, printmaking) with upcycled materials.  It covers a wide range of materials and projects including home decor, clothing, even storage options, and goes into great detail on deconstruction techniques and sewing tips.

Here’s a glimpse at some of my favorites.  There are so many great ideas here, my head is spinning a little.  Wouldn’t those arthimetic pillows be great for a kid space?  And how cute would those onion and garlic sacks be as a hostess gift?  
Along with some mighty enticing project photography, Reinvention also contains remarkably detailed and easy-to-follow tutorials.  Want to see for yourself?  For your chance to win a copy, simply leave a comment containing your email below.  Additional entries are available for becoming (or already being) a follower of MPMK’s facebook, twitter, or pinterest page.
YOU MUST LEAVE A SEPARATE COMMENT WITH AN EMAIL ADDRESS FOR EACH OF THE 4 POSSIBLE ENTRY METHODS.
This contest is limited to U.S. residents only and will end at midnight EST on Friday, May 11th, 2012.
