Since the release of the beautiful new edition of The Prairie Prince, (or should I say handsome new edition), I've been riddled with the question, "Did Kevin know he was going to be on the cover?"  Well, the answer to that burning question is, "Of course Kevin didn't know!"  What?  Do you think I'm crazy?  He probably would've axed the idea before it was even all the way out of my mouth if I'd told him ahead of time.

Nope…poor Kevin didn't find out that HE was the image of The Prairie Prince (as of course he always has been to me) until the moment I showed him the announcement on the website!  His reaction was a mixture of horror, surprise, being flattered, embarrassment, and incredible understanding and patience toward his wife (me)!

I asked him what he would've done if I had asked his permission first, and he confessed he would've moved heaven and earth to change my mind.  But now that it's done…he understands that I love him sooooooooooooooo much and is flattered that I think of him as handsome even though he doesn't see himself that way or as worthy to be on a book cover.  (That's part of Kevin's charm…the fact that he doesn't see himself the way the rest of us girls do!)

And so…there you have it!  Nope…he didn't know before hand!  And YES…I LOVE the new cover!  I have a ton of stories to share about all the new covers, but I'm kind of squished for time today…so I'll save those for later!

Meanwhile…I'm soooooooo behind on my random contest stuff!  The winner of the FTD Spring Bouquet Arrangement is Sally Timmons!  E-mail me your address at, Sally…and I'll get that ordered for you!

As for a new contest…hmmm…let me think.  Ooo!  How about this…a $25 Michael's gift card (Michael's the craft store, of course)!  Does that sound fun?  I have all my custom framing done there, and usually end up picking up a few other things!  So…pop in a comment below about your crafty projects for Spring (or for any other reason) and you'll be entered to win!  My friend Jan sent me a Hobby Lobby gift card for Christmas and I used it just the other day to purchase some crafting supplies I need for a project!  (Thanks, Jan!)  Gift cards are so fun, right?

Sadie I absolutely love that you put your hubby's picture on the cover of The Prairie Prince!! Sometimes it's better to ask for forgiveness instead of permission? Thanks for all of your awesome books, I still have 3 books of yours to read.

Carol That's wonderful that the cover is your Handsome husband Marcia. :)I definitely agree with Sadie in it being better to ask for forgiveness instead of permission. :)
I love Michael's for crafting. I too have framing done there but the youngest daughter and I are looking to make some new Easter wreaths. Thanks for this chance.

Godrules51189 This spring/summer I have a ton of projects I want to get done! I am currently making my daughter and I matching Easter dresses! This summer I will be doing a lot of small painting projects for Christmas that my daughter will help with (painted christmas ornaments with her little fingerprint animals and snowmen) and canvas fingerpainting with letters taped off (or stickers!) and she can go to town, then peel off tape and Tada! Baby Piper artwork with the name or initial of the person we're giving them too!

Waiting impatiently for "Untethered"! Kayla *P*

Margaret Aw, such a great cover! How fun for you! I am almost a hopeless crafter, except when it comes to flowers. Michael's is great for floral supplies. I'd like to get some more floral wire and tape for making corsages. I've got some family friends' teenagers who'll need them. :)

Charity Love the cover. Working on a few crafts for the summer so the gift card would be great.

Alysia I thought that the guy on the cover looked familiar...duh. So romantic. I can always use more paper for cards :)
