Big news in Little Edmonton!




 
 
Ok time to 'fess up, about my absence, I've been a little preoccupied recently, always crafting, always busy with the family, always secretly planning world domination (and now my gig's up), but would you believe that people have started noticing me?
At first I thought it was something I was doing with my hair, brushing it (ha ha) and the odd half arsed attempt at something trendy to prove to the other Mum's at Preschool that I've still got it. Then I realised that these people don't know what I look like (phewee, looks down at comfy slippers!)
I've been in demand recently,
* I was asked to write in a local paper on creative recycling (thank you Marjorie Campbell)
 
* Had my map projects featured on the awesome Gear Junkie
 
* followed swiftly by two projects on the mighty Huffington Post
 
*Simply Crochet magazine (UK) wanted to include my Crochet edged notebooks in their News page.
and then... Charlotte Rivers the Author, contacted me to ask if I would submit some of my book projects for her latest 'Book of Books'.
So I've been plugging away reshooting pics of my Map notebooks, Security envelope books and Crochet edged notebooks (big thank you to the effervescent Tasha for her photography skills.) Then describing my creative process (eeek, very unprofessional I'm sure)
Such exciting opportunities handed to me recently, you see, I'm kind of shy about mentioning it, but here goes... I've always wanted to ... (whispers quietly in your ear and then giggles)
write
my
own
book
and I think I could do it too.
If only I knew. Where. To. Start.  So I'm feeling really inspired that even if not in MY book, I could very well be in A book, and since there's only two letters different between A and MY I absolutely feel like it may even be almost possible, maybe, perhaps...
