I don’t think I’ve even mentioned this here, but my book is now available for pre-order on Amazon!
To celebrate, I thought I’d share an image from the photo shoot that happened about a year ago. (Wow! Really?)
One of my favorite parts of doing this book was that I got to hire my Mom to do the step-by-step photography. Over four days, we shot just under 300 process photos. (About 285 of them made it into the book, too! Yay!)
It was so great working with Mom because she totally understands crafting. So I could hold a project up for her and say, “Okay, Mom, this photo has to convey doing this thing and this thing.”
And she’d say, “Hmmm. Okay then – move your left arm over there, hold that piece like this and – WAIT! STOP DOING THAT WITH YOUR HANDS!
By “that,” she means this. Over and over again, I’d be posing for a photo, and start thinking about how huge this project was and how worried I was about screwing up. And then my hands would tense up into these clawlike nightmares.
Thanks entirely to Mom’s diligence, I can promise you won’t see anything like this in the book. :-)
Oh – and once the book is out, I’ll tell you some stories about that crazy tea cozy.
