MY BOOK.......HANDMADE DECORATIVE BOOKS


I am very excited that the book I have been working on with SEARCH PRESS is now published!! I can now tell you that it will be available from September 11th.

I am going to be doing book signings! It feels very strange to be saying that, I had wanted to write a book for so long and now it is here it does not seem real!!

The first hopefully being at The CRAFT BARN Weekend Extravaganza on 12th/13th September; I say hopefully because it is only available the day before and so it will be cutting it fine getting copies in time.


I will also be signing copies at
PADDYS STAMPING PLACE on 16th September,
THE STAMP ATTIC on 21st September (in the shop during the day and at their monthly stamp club meeting in the evening)
and at THE CUBBY HOLE on 25th/26th of September in conjunction with their MacMillan charity weekend (I will also be demoing those 2 days)

Wow Sue! That's great news. It looks fantastic. Shame I can't make the Craft Barn as we have the South Stamp Show and I have to work there so will be completely wacked out on Sunday.

How can I pre-order one, Sue? We can't get to The Craft Barn until the Sunday so I'm worried that they might all have gone. I would really like a signed one as it's all thanks to you that I got myself sorted out with using the Distress inks. I asked you about them at the last extravaganza at The Craft Barn and you sat and showed me where I was going wrong. You are a real star! All the very best to you.

WOW!! Well, I have always known you work is awesome, so it does not surprise me that you could publish your own book, and I think I am going to have to get a copy, so I am going to go look at Amazon.ca or Indigo.ca and check if I can pre order it :) Congratulations to you, I am very happy for you, and the front cover is gorgeous :)

I've just ordered a copy of your book from the Stamp Attic Sue - and I am hoping to get a signed copy even though this means I'll have to wait until after 21 Sept!! Hope you don't get writer's cramp!

Athena said...

My signed copy arrived yesterday and I'm thrilled :)

I think that the book is really well done and it's ideal for people like me who are just beginning, or have never attended a workshop. It's easy to understand the step by step instructions as they are very clear. My favourite is the Binding to make a book/CJ ,because it's something that I couldn't really understand how to do, even after watching numerous youtube videos on Coptic stitch and Binding!
Now I have some new and fabulous techniques under my belt.
You should do some YOUTUBE videos!!
