Darla Arni *Review and Giveaway*

Saturday, December 18, 2010

    I received Darla Arni's book Full Plate No Fork, and a Ho3 ornament from her Etsy Shop Darla Arni Creates.  Her book is so amazing, and it definitely spoke to me!  Being a busy mom, I know what if feels like to have a full plate with no fork, and this book has helped me in many aspects of my life!  The Ho3 ornament from Darla Arni Creates, is also very beautiful, we love it, and all our family has asked where we got it!  Although some of them don't understand it, it definitely speaks to me and Chris's geekier side!

    Full Plate No Fork by: Darla Arni,  isn't a quick fix that holds all the answers.  Instead it allows you to feel at home within it's pages while you create your best life with the tips, tools, and steps shared in each chapter.  About from her Etsy Shop Darla Arni Creates:  Early on I decided whatever I did, it was going to be done with creativity. I view life as a blank canvas that is constantly changing and being refined but never really finished. I wish I had nine lives like a cat so I could do everything I want to do in one lifetime, but even nine would not be enough! So far I have been an educator, assistant professor, PR professional, magazine editor, artist, interior designer, educational trainer, author, columnist, and professional speaker. Currently I am a professional speaker, author and artist.
    Overall I love the book, and the ornament, and I'm inspired by all that she does, and has done!  Her book, and the items from her shop would make great holiday gifts!  I would recommend both Full Plate No Fork and Darla Arni Creates to anyone!  The Ho3 ornament retails for $6.00 and Full Plate No Fork by: Darla Arni retails for $15.00.  And now for the fun part, the giveaway details are below.  Good luck and have fun!
