materially crafted – the book!

Materially Crafted

While driving through our neighborhood last week I saw something very cool on the side of the road. While I was busy ohhing and ahhing, my son spoke up and said, “Mom, let’s look in one of the craft books to see how to make that.” Without thinking I quickly blurted out… “Hey buddy, your mamma makes the craft books!” And then I laughed at myself. Really hard. Because, it sounds insane. And oh my gosh… it’s true!

You guys… I wrote a craft book and I am crazy excited to finally be able to share about it with you.

The book will be out in the spring – which seems like forever in blog time, but it’s actually pretty soon in book time. Book time is such a crazy world to me (but that’s a conversation for a later post).

My first ever book!

Materially Crafted: A DIY Primer for the Pinterest-Obsessed

I am so excited to tell you about it! It’s been excruciating to not be able to share it with you (except the dedication, I did share that :)

My heart behind the book is a great desire to help you succeed at the craft projects you try. You know, those pins you start and then stop moments later because you just don’t know what the heck you’re doing – or why in the world yours looks so different than the photo. Pinterest fails no more!

The book is not just inspirational, although I hope you will be inspired by all the creative projects included. The book is not just teaching, although I hope you’ll learn from it.

I like to think of Materially Crafted as our little crafting black book. The one we will turn to time and time again. The book that will make us succeed.

EEEEK! I am just so excited to begin rolling out photos, a cover, and more about the book soon. Thanks for all your love, support, and patience over the past year as I’ve juggled writing a book and running this blog. It’s been fun, and super hard, and you mean the world to me. xoxo
