Giveaways and a new *Gift of Jewels* project

Today is the last day to enter the Why Love Matters Giveaway at sunnydaytodaymama and be included in a random draw to win a copy of Why Love Matters: How Affection Shapes a Baby's Brain by Sue Gerhardt. Entries close at midnight GMT and the winner will be announced on Monday 11th January, along with details of a new Giveaway starting next week.

I'm delighted to have won a beautiful handmade *world peace* poster and set of floral postcards donated by Operation You in the recent *Gift of Jewels* giveaways at Necessary Room. Thank you Se'Lah and Vchelle. Necessary Room is now hosting a new *Gift of Jewels* project. Participants will send a randomly selected person a greeting card in the post and each receive one in return. To take part visit *Gift of Jewels* project: peace and love... by 30th January.

My thanks also to A Mountain Mama who, following the previous *Gift of Jewels* project, sent us a sweet drawing by her daughter of 'Sunnyboy and the butterflies'. It was a lovely surprise and Sunnyboy was very pleased to receive it.


  1. I would love to register, but I think reading this book would be much too hard for me. We're adopting, so we know our children won't have had affection as babies. Very, very sad but true. Whatever shape their brains are is fine with us, though. We'll love them regardless. I have a feeling that the hardest part about adopting will be not knowing the pain, neglect and abandonment they have gone through before joining our family.
