You know those food swaps that I blab about periodically? Well, the lovely lady who organizes the swaps is also an author. Kate Payne's first book, of many to come I hope, is now out!
Kate wrote the Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking for those of us who are decidedly not Martha acolytes. She offers tips and tricks to make homemaking easy breezy and enjoyable. Who would have thunk doing housework could be fun? (Certainly not me. As I type this, there's a pile of laundry waiting to be folded. It's been sitting on a chair in the living room for going on a week now. Martha, not to mention my Mother, would be scandalized.)
Kate really does make a convincing case that keeping house can, indeed, be a pleasure. Her book is a treasure trove of information on how to make your home an oasis of domestic bliss.
If you’d like to win an autographed copy of the book, courtesy of Harper Design, the publisher, leave a comment telling me your least favorite household chore.
Here’s hoping that Kate’s book will include a hip trick to help you conquer that pesky task. (If not, at least you’ll have a good book to curl up with while procrastinating doing it.) Check back in on Monday, May 30th after 5pm CST when I'll randomly choose a winner.
Also, be sure to check out Kate's site, Hip Girls Home, for even more tips and tricks to be the best homemaker you can be.
Since I didn't hear back from Vion after one week, I decided to redraw for another winner. This time Renee is the lucky gal! Renee, I'll contact you for a mailing address.
