Book Photography

For the past few weeks, I have been working on the felt flowers that will be used in the photography for the front & back covers of my book (50 Felt Flowers to Make). The book making process has been an enjoyable one, and I have learned so much along the way.

I took a very rough photo (on my crappy camera), for you to see what the idea will look like for the back cover.

I think it turned out really sweet, and I can't wait to see what the professional photographers do with it!!

Holly Smokes it's been forever!!!

Well its' been a couple of months since my last blog post. So much has happened since November! My baby girl turned 1 (she is now 14 months old), the holidays were super crazy, and I was offered a book deal! That's right, I said "Book Deal"! A publishing house in London, England (Quarto Publishing) saw my felt flowers on a few different websites, loved them, and contacted me with an offer I couldn't refuse! Long story short, I am half-way through the making of this book, which will be more like a crafters how-to guide on how to make your own felt flowers. The book will include my own patterns, instructions, and even different home decor and fashion accessory projects. I am very excited about this opportunity!

Also, I have so many new items to my etsy shop Giddy Up & Grow, that I can't even list them all here. But here are just a few of my new favorites! Check out the shop from time-to-time, as new items get added all the time!

Need a special hair accessory??? No problem, just contact me with your request, and we can work together to make a special piece just for you!
