As I type, I am in awe. I can’t believe this is really happening! My book is actually being printed as I speak!
After spending A LOT of time on designing this book and clearing many hurdles on trying to get it in print, I finally found someone who is able to print and bind a book the way I envisioned. Holmes Printing Solutions is doing such a great job and they are super to work with! They have been extremely helpful and have provided very prompt service. Not once have I felt like “just another number to move through and get out of the way.” I could continue to gush here but I think you get the picture!
My goal while writing/designing this book was to inspire people to use what they have and create what they want, while not spending a lot of money doing so. My sub title pretty much says it all:
Thrifty, do it yourself ideas to turn any house into
a home using a shoestring budget.
I tried to keep any tutorials & tips simple and easy to understand.
There are five parts to this book. Following is a glimpse inside the book…
Part 1 is “Our Home” where I give you a tour of our home, along with page numbers where you can turn to for instructions on how I made various things throughout our home.
Part 2 is called “Paint Passion” where I share various painting techniques that have worked for me over the years.
Part 3 is “creating signs,” which is all about different ways of applying graphics to wood, fabric and more.
Part 4 is “furniture creations & makeovers”
And last, part 5 is “random projects”
I set up a little “store”, powered by Ecwid, along the right sidebar, almost at the top of my blog, for you to order a book.
I will also be doing a few book signings this spring, so watch for those. And you can be sure I will carry a box of these books with me where ever I go, so don’t be afraid to contact me directly to get a book!
The book has a soft cover and measures 8x10 inches. It has 144 color pages.
I like to think you won’t be disappointed!
Thanks for visiting…
