Guess what???

I'm published!!
Order the book HERE.

I also ordered a handful of copies that I will be bringing to Sweetpeas with my at the end of the month. When I return, I will sell what's left here on my blog in April. Also had a question about having to become a "member" of Blurb.com to order. That is who I published it through. Looks like you do need to, but it's free and easy. Here are a few pictures, click on book preview for more. Hope you enjoy!
THANK YOU all for your support of my blog and my creative process. I think you'll enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed making it. My main goal of the book was to have my blog in a tangible format so it's not just "out there" in cyberspace. During the process of sifting through thousands of pictures and hundreds of blog entries, I came to realize that my blog and therefore this book is truly an authentic representation of who I am. To have found a community to share that with and be supportive of is such an amazing blessing.


Hugs!
