It's Here- My Book Release!!!!

So I didn't get an actual photo of the fed ex guy this time but I did bolt down the steps in time to throw open the door to greet him. The only time the fed ex truck comes here it's from my publisher so I knew what those boxes he was stacking up by the front door meant. My book was here!!! I'm so excited/a little bit nervous. I've been telling you how great it is, how amazing the projects are, and how much you'll love the book. But I haven't told you how much of me is in this book. This isn't just 20+ fabric and wire projects. It's eight chapters and an introduction of me telling you my story and hopefully encouraging you through it. My wire and fabric creations are the product of this story- I'm hoping you'll find the greatest value in the writing.

I wrote this book with you in mind. My blog readers, my friends, the other women out there who are trying to find their own creative voice. The women who thought at one point that being creative didn't really matter that much, only to find that it does. That they need it and don't know where or how to start it back up again. I also wrote this for those who maybe are creative on the weekends but want to be creative everyday. How do you find the inspiration for daily creation? How do you do this without draining yourself? You're wondering how to take your creativity to what you see as the next level.

My hope, my prayer, is that you all find direction in this book. That the benefit to you will outweigh the vulnerability I feel. I believe it's worth it. So if you do see yourself as someone who would benefit from this message, then go, run, get to your bookseller and GET THIS BOOK!! Or at least be one of those annoying people who park themselves in a comfy chair and read a book cover to cover while at the bookstore. Ok so that's me sometimes... but I really believe that you'll find value in this book!

Yay!! I can't wait!!! 

PS- I did do a quickie little video on my phone as I opened the books- just so I can share this with you. I sound a little dorky but I bet you won't mind.
Hopefully. ;)

How exciting ... I'm so very happy for you. I will be bothering my local bookstore to make sure that they get it soon ... we Canadians seem to get everything a few weeks later than our American friends.

Can't wait to pick up a copy for my personal library! Cheers.

Dear Jen,
I am so excited for you! That is such a huge deal. The video was so cute. Congrats. I can't wait to see the book ( I will be one of those annoying people reading it in the bookstore,cover to cover). Do you know if the bookstores have it yet?
