    Guess what? I FINALLY signed up for PINTEREST! Yes I must be the last person on earth to do so. I was holding out, but was secretly jealous. Hope it does not become a time-sucker, I heard some stories. =)

    I shall have to keep tight reins on myself if it’s as cool as peeps say. I am hoping it will help me to keep all my herbal Internet finds a bit more organized. I have too many tabs opened on my browser all the time, and too many Bookmarks and Folders in my bookmarks!

    I follow Herbal Roots on Facebook, on Twiitter, and also follow all of your Pinterest boards. Myself and my four year old daughter would love to receive this gift. We both love plants, gardening, and cooking together with our own grown vegetables and herbs. My daughter, Gia is almost four years old right now. She really loves your e-zine and would love to receive this gift you are offering. We have only gotten one e-zine so far and we both love it. She liked the recipes you put in your e-zine along with the beautiful pictures of flowers that were in that issue (those are her favorites). And I love everything about it; the style of the e-zine, the way it is written, the font, how it is fun for both children and adults of any age, the recipes, and also how the pictures are drawn (my favorites). We want to learn more! My daughter and I would be so grateful to get this gift and gain more knowledge on plants and more! In addition, I shared this great giveaway you are currently offering on my Twitter account, Happy Holidays!

    I am a follower on twitter and Pinterest. I love your e-zines (the ones that I have gotten so far from Herb Fairies) and will soon be purchasing them for the first time. I just started learning about herbs this summer and love it so much. I am looking forward to learning more and would love to win this amazing giveaway that you are offering. Happy Holidays!!!
