Well, I've timed my first ever giveaway perfectly for you guys!!
Not long ago I did a little talk for a creative festival at Avondale College. It was a panel style talk and there were 2 other super creative people sharing as well. One of those lovely ladies was Georgina from Perpetual One. Even though I only got the chance to meet Georgina for a short time, I instantly wished we lived in the same state so we could be creative together. Never mind though, the internet is a marvellous place and we have kept in touch to bring you something special (plus there's more in store hopefully!)
Here is a little bit about Georgina:
Georgina has been a vintage trader for the past five years. Perpetual One is her small business that reflects a love of quality pieces made and collected by hand. From July 2010-December 2011 she used a 1960's Sunliner caravan 'Sunny' as a pop-up retail space at local markets for her vintage wares. In June 2011 she co-directed a large vintage & designer wares pop-up shop called ‘Two Golden Hours’ held at Yandina Station homestead in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Georgina likes the stories and quality of old things that are difficult to replicate - and she is drawn to the unique. Currently she has focused her work on hand-restoring old army blankets and stitching custom pieces.
As a writer, Georgina has also authored many articles, magazine & newsletter columns and contributed to study guides. Lifted is her first book, self-published in December 2012.
And 'Lifted' is what I want to give you the opportunity to win!
Begun as a personal reflection of Georgina’s own early steps into motherhood on the birth of her first son nearly eight years ago, ‘Lifted’ became something so much more. This small book opens an important and authentic dialogue on the changes that occur upon becoming a mum.
Woven with touching and bravely candid quotes from other mothers – of various ages and backgrounds –‘Lifted’ speaks to women just beginning their journey, as well as those further down the road and, may even help partners gain insight into their new perspective.
Written with a gentle, sincere voice, this book by Georgina draws on her Christian faith to bring honesty, comfort and hope to new mothers. ‘Lifted’ is available via Georgina’s on-line shop.
