Grandma’s Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffer Saturday

I love getting books for gifts! Today I have two to talk about. The first one, “Use Your Words: A Guide For Mothers” is a book that focuses on the craft of writing using motherhood as a subject. Kate Hopper doesn’t just focus on how to fit writing into a busy life. This book focuses on the craft of creative nonfiction, and how a blogger can take her stories and experiences as a mother to rise to the next level.

As one of the most popular writing teachers from The Loft in Minneapolis, Kate guides the reader in a straightforward, nurturing, and passionate voice. USE YOUR WORDS provides a unique opportunity for mothers to grow as even stronger, more powerful writers. This book retails for $16.95.

“Lemons and Lavender: The Eco Guide to Better Homekeepingis a very nice little book that shows you how to detox your budget, your house, your food, and your family and live the eco-fabulous good life! Billie Sharp’s LEMONS AND LAVENDER: THE ECO GUIDE TO BETTER HOMEKEEPING is a wonderful guide to creativity for anyone who wants save money and help the planet while reinventing their own good life, both young hipsters and housewives.

About Karen

Karen Eidson is telling the world way too much about her, whether they want to know it or not. She writes about her life of living full time in an RV, eating a gluten free diet, things she does for fun, and things that are important to her. She makes you look at photos of her grandchildren, talk about her husband's survival of oral cancer, and shows you things she has made. You know you want to look.


  1. Reading new books is always a good way to “get away” from real life!

  2. like just about any book, thanks

    Because they are the best drug. The first thing I got this LO, even before clothes, was a full bookshelf.

  4. I LOVE to read and have found it to be a great source of inspiration for my life and it has also served as a way to “fill my emotional tank” back up. A time for myself in an otherwise chaotic husehold that is dedicated to taking care of and running my family

  5. I only like to win books if they are things I will really read…and I would LOVE to read these! I am especially interested in *Lemons and Lavender* because I am a recovering slob, slowly learning how to keep a pleasant house. 😉

    Thanks so much!
