You know how everyone has a list of things they would like to accomplish in their lifetime? Well my list includes random things like "take a ceramics class" [which I'll finally be doing this year!], "go parasailing" and "learn to ride a motorcycle" [wait, that one is being scratched off the list!]. One goal that wasn't ever on my list was having one of my own projects published in a real book [let alone a book published by Chronicle Books...I love their books!], but maybe it should have been because it is pretty darn cool seeing your work in print.
I mentioned the book back in May and somehow in the midst of moving to Korea and getting settled over here, I forgot to mention that the book is out! You can find Handmade Hellos! at your local bookstore or online. I have a copy and I am happy to say it really is a fantastic book with projects from some of my favorite crafters [Amy Karol, Sarah Neuberger] and stationery designers [Egg Press + Binth].
Now on to the good news! If you leave your name in the comments below you'll be automatically entered to win your own copy of Handmade Hellos!. And since the kind folks at Chronicle Books offered to give out three copies, your chances of winning are pretty darn good! I'll plan to draw three names on Sunday, January 18th.
I also wanted to say "thank you" to everyone who stops by my online journal to say "hello. It was through this blog that Billie + Tootie of Reform School found my work and it was at their store in Silverlake that Eunice + Sabrina of Hello!Lucky [the editors of the book] noticed my fabric + cards. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the years of encouragement and support! xoxo.
