The Final Count Down Is ON!!!

CHEERS to everyone!

I returned home from an
INCREDIBLE trip to Festival of Quilts
in Birmingham, England.

The time has passed so quickly these
last several weeks that I can hardly
believe we are only DAYS away from
September 1, and the official release
of my NEW BOOK, Nature Inspired.

Copies of the book arrived on the
doorstep the day before I left for the

And as the delivery driver carried box
after box through the door, tears began
to stream down my face.

Finally after bringing in the last one,
the driver turned to me and asked...
"What is inside all these cartons..books?"
I just smiled at him, then replied..."Yes".

Monday, August 31st is the last day I will be
accepting pre-orders for Nature Inspired
with details on how to purchase a copy located in
the right side margin of this post. Each book will be
autographed and comes with a Limited Edition print.

As an additional Thank You for pre-ordering,
you will be eligible to win 1 of 2 original
artworks shown in my July/August article in
Somerset Studio. So don't wait to be including
in this FABULOUS giveaway. Winners will be
chosen on the 1st.

Also some additional bits of information to pass
along, I have several beautiful friends helping me
celebrate the release with giveaways on their blogs.
Both Rebecca Sower and Bill & Kristin Steiner
currently have posts where you can leave a
comment for a chance to receive a free copy.
And friend, Kelly Rae Roberts, will also be
hosting a giveaway very soon.

Finally, I invite you to check out the Sept/Oct issue of
Cloth, Paper, Scissors on page 7 where Nature
received a glowing review from one
of the magazine's editors. Thanks CPS!

You are right to be thrilled and proud, and we send barnyard love your way- and your story also is one more demonstration that it's not what happens in life, it's how you look at it. Should I direct people to this blog to buy one, or the publisher??
Hope to see you for some pie when you're in Or.
