Halfway Point: New Year=New Beginnings (plus June’s Winner and July’s Prize)

In January of this year, I posted about a year-long giveaway called New Year=New Beginnings that I’m offering here on Frog on a Blog–a new prize each month for folks who comment on blog posts. With so much negative energy floating around in the world, I wanted to do something positive to show my gratitude to my followers, fans, and friends for their support.

I cannot believe the year is half over already! Where did the time go?! So far, I’ve given away five prizes, January through May, and have enjoyed every second of it. I love giving! 🙂 Before I announce the winner of prize #6 (June’s prize) I want to say thanks to everyone who’s stuck with me so far. I really appreciate it! I know I didn’t offer much original content for June for you all to comment on or share. I plan to change that for July. And I have already started with a guest post by Susanna Leonard Hill, which you can take a look at by clicking HERE.

Now, let’s recap the prizes I’ve given away so far and announce the winner of June’s prize!

January’s prize was a copy of my book The Peddler’s Bed.

February’s prize was an adorable plushie Curious George.

March’s prize was a set of Pilot’s pens, a Night Writer 2-pack with LED lights, perfect for writing in the dark, and a must have for writers or travelers.

April’s prize was winner’s choice of either a picture book manuscript critique (for writers) or a Personal Library Kit (for book lovers).

May’s prize was a set of two darling bookmarks: A Hippo and a Crocodile.

June’s prize was a Maurice Sendak Nutshell Library box set that includes four tiny classics: Alligators All AroundChicken Soup With RiceOne Was Johnny, and Pierre.

And the winner of June’s prize is…

July’s prize is a set of two music CDs by the amazing Emily Arrow: Storytime Singalong volumes 1 and 2! These CDs feature original music inspired by picture books. So cool!

  1. Thanks, Norah! Wish I could extend the giveaways to my international followers too, like you. I’m not familiar with all the contest regulations, and unfortunately, mailing would be cost prohibitive–probably more than the item is worth.

    I always use the halfway point to reevaluate my goals – many of which have unfortunately been forgotten. I have enjoyed following your blog.
