Less than a month now until the release
date for my new book, Nature Inspired.
I am SO giddy with excitement, yet not
without some butterflies too!!!
Last Saturday, I was lying in bed, almost
ready to fall asleep when I started thinking
about the book, then all of a sudden I started
giggling, which woke my husband up.
When he asked me about my outburst, I told
him that I was imagining the Letterman show,
and that David was on-stage belting out,
in his booming voice, the top ten reasons to
love Nature Inspired.
David's monologue made me smile BIG!, and I
thought it might be fun to share his Top Ten
List with you, so here goes....
#10 - Readers can paint, journal, and
scrapbook their most cherished nature
#9 - Discover great techniques for
constructing nature assemblages.
#8 - Make a unique Gathering Journal
for collecting and preserving botanicals.
#7 - Design gorgeous Beaded Necklaces
and Pendants you'll love wearing again
and again. And, who can resist jewelry?
#6 - Examine alternative methods for
bringing the beauty of the outdoors
#5 - There are super techniques to
solve those complicated nature
#4 - Sketch/Draw nature images and
scenes from your own photographs.
#3 - Explore a sense of place, both
far away and in your own backyard,
with projects found in Nature Inspired.
#2 - THINK of the Enormous
possibilities that abound when
creating art inspired by nature.
#1 REASON IS!!!..... (drum-roll PLEASE)
