It’s time to share the fun as I launch the start of my book tour! Wahoo! I’m so happy with how it turned out. It’s beautiful, better than I imagined it would be. I may have cried just a little as I opened it up for the first time :)

Thanks to the amazing photography of Nicole Gerulat, who turned my crafts into pictures of art! It’s been so fun to flip through the colorful pages and see my crafts come to life.

Even my kids are sprinkled throughout the book, so fun to see them! They LOVE to flip through to find their face!
