Materially Crafted - a DIY primer for the design-obsessed

Ahhh… EEK… you guys, it’s so close! The book I’ve been working on for the past year-ish is finally off to print. Here is the cover!!!

There is so much about writing a book that I want to chat with you about, and I will be following  up with more of it soon. I know I’ve been pretty quiet about it so far, but that is all about to change…

Because today the book cover was released. And the book was put up for pre-sale – right here. Pre-sale! Like you can actually buy it today! The book will be out in stores March 3rd and all I want to do is jump up and down and scream like a 13 year old .

The concept for Materially Crafted came to me a couple years ago while answering email questions about a project. I realized how often you guys try your hand at DIY projects, only to have them not come out as perfectly as you wanted. Which is the worst. I dreamed of writing a guide, a DIY crafting bible of sorts, that would walk you through the materials and processes in a fun, super pretty way. That when you do see something you love, you’ll be able to make it happen just as you wanted. And it will be beautiful! And we will all live in a fabulous world of beauty, surrounded by DIY projects we crafted with ease! Too much to ask from a book, you say? Not at all. With this little crafting bible by your side – it is totally going to happen.

I’m so excited to begin talking more about Materially Crafted, the zillion things I learned while writing a book, the killer friends who collaborated with me on it, the awesome projects included, the illustrations, the tips, and gah… everything else. I really love it, and I love you all for making it happen.
