Super super cool.

Most people who know me even a little, know that I'm pretty quiet about my successes, with the exception of my son, who I have no shame in declaring as my most incredible success so far. :)

But I have to say, even this is too big for me to hold back on. The first OFFICIAL public announcement of my book by Deb, the Director of Craft Publications at Leisure Arts, the publisher of my book, Doodling for Papercrafters. She writes a pretty succinct and kind review on her blog (CLICK HERE).

It's real to me now. Someone said it out loud for the world to hear. I have a book and it's really coming out and people really can buy it. I'm not sure where, and not exactly sure when, but I promise to post as soon as possible.

Sometimes you just have to pat yourself on the back and give yourself a little credit for working your butt off. So, pat-pat-pat. That's it. Moving on.

:)

(And thanks to Debra, Christina, and Deb and the behind-the-scenes folks at Leisure Arts who have worked to get this book out. Thanks so much. Leisure Arts has been a joy to work with!)
