The Changing Room:Interactive Journal – Photo Contest

Did you journal while pregnant? Do you journal about your kids now? I started a journal for each of my children. I don’t keep up with it like I want to, but every now and then I write down what’s happening in their lives.

Cristina Carlina has published her first interactive journal, “The Changing Room: A Mother’s Journal of Gratitude to Her Little Girl.” This interactive journal by Cristina Carlino and YOU captures all those astonishing parenting moments before they fade into the swirl of everyday life. Throughout the book, Cristina shares her personal story and asks questions that inspire you to remember those first precious years of motherhood. This journal is a special place for your memories, drawings and letters. One day it will become a priceless keepsake for your daughter.

Cristina’s friend, actress Mariska Hargitay is in love with the book, and she and Cristina have joined forces for her Joyful Heart Foundation, benefiting survivors of rape, incest and abuse. The neat thing is 100% of the net proceeds for The Changing Room will go to Joyful Heart.

Mariska says this about the book:

“This beautiful and rare journal is an expression of the exquisite and tender delight Cristina takes in motherhood. As if by magic, the journal opens doors into the most precious terrain where the miracles of childhood transform into memories large and small. What a gift to be led to this place of wonder, joy and gratitude. And we are so pleased that 100% of the net proceeds from this book are being donated to the Joyful Heart Foundation. Thank you, Cristina!”

To celebrate the season of mothers and the release of The Changing Room, Cristina is hosting a WISHES FOR MY LITTLE GIRL PHOTO CONTEST on her Facebook fan page ( Five winners will receive a free copy of The Changing Room. Winners will be determined by the number of “Likes” they receive from other Cristina Carlino Fans, so invite your friends to Cristina’s fan page and vote!

This book is also available for purchase on for 15.95.

What a wonderful Mother’s Day gift to yourself and your daughter!
