WINNER!!! Giveaway: “Secret Garden, The Experiment”

When I got the bright idea to do giveaways in my magazine, I wasn’t entirely sure they’d be successful. Two hundred and twenty-seven wonder-full comments later (on this giveaway alone), I’m confident it’s as much fun for you as it is for us. So, stay tuned for more giveaways in each issue of MaryJanesFarm. The Oct/Nov issue just went on sale on newsstands, so it’s time to announce the giveaways for the Aug/Sept issue, “The Experiment.” For the next seven days (except for Friday, which is always our recipe day), I’ll reveal the winners for each of our giveaways. Be sure to come back each day to see if you’re the “won.”

And the winner of the “Secret Garden, The Experiment” giveaway is:

Sheri Puls, who said:

“I absolutely love MaryJanesFarm! My mother brought an issue when she came to visit several years ago, and I subscribed soon after reading it. What do I love most about it? Lots of things! The recipes, crafts, gardening tips, stories about enterprising and creative women all across the country and even around the world—very inspiring! Thank you, MaryJanesFarm!”


And the original post for the GIVEAWAY was (thank you to all who participated):

In the Aug/Sept issue of MaryJanesFarm, “The Experiment” (on newsstands July 14), we led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win a free copy of a wonderful book, Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book by Johanna Basford, featured in our “Farmgirl Finds” section that has sold more than a million copies worldwide. Tumble down the rabbit hole into an inky black-and-white wonderland in Secret Garden. This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations, sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found and brought to life through coloring.

    Just started my own little homestead this past spring. Over the years I’ve been collecting items I would need. We moved this past Feb. and it’s been great. So far 18 chickens and 2 ducks for the grandkids. My garden is great and next year I will start my flower gardens. I started selling my eggs already. It’s been hard work, but a great time. Thanks for the advise in your magazine it’s been so helpful.

  2. Marina Tyson says:

    I grew up in farm country and Mary Jane brings me back to a very happy time in my life.

  3. Love Mary Janes Farm magazine because it reminds me that there are people all over the world who think like I do!

  4. Anne Peters says:

    Mary Janes Farm magazine allows me to feel relaxed when I read through it. Its focus on the simplicities of life enable me to remember what life was like when I was young. Chasing the chickens around the yard on the farm; white eyelet bed linens and pillow covers; and the satisfaction of sitting with my aunts in the evening, while they were either quilting, hooking rugs or simply knitting scarves. What a refreshing experience your magazines offers and I thank you for it.

  5. Tracey Dunkelberg says:

    The thing I like most about MaryJanes is that it shows women ways to do things they thought were out of reach. These women can also brainstorm in the forums with others who live totally different lives but share a common denominator.

  6. Nancy Bugliosi says:

    Love your magazine Mary Janes Farm! Nothing better than relaxing on the couch, a fire going and reading Mary Janes from cover to cover!
