Inspiration Monday

It's party day! Today, is my favorite posting day of the week...so I'm super thrilled to share this little tidbit with you here.

So, I've had this fun little "secret" in the works since the summertime. I've just signed a contract for a BOOK! I couldn't be more thrilled (and a little scared) to be bringing you an entire BOOK OF PRINTS! Just like the free printables I post every week, this book will be filled with already-printed "printables" for use in your home and daily life. My chapter list was just approved and I'll be starting design work this week. My full manuscript is due at the end of January and the book should hit shelves December of 2016.


My plan will be to slightly scale back posting on the blog while I'm doing so much design work for the book. I do still plan to post at least twice a week and continue the party.

This announcement is also a huge THANK YOU for your support of all of my work...without this blog and its readers, this fun book gig would have never happened. I can't wait to share more as it all comes together.


But for now...LET'S PARTY!!
