I seem to be constitutionally incapable of following. (That's a weird way to start a craft book review, but bear with me.) I've never quite been able to get wholeheartedly interested in any large-scale craft movement. I prefer to skim the edges of movements, picking up little bits and hybridizing them.
Four years ago, I made this Valentine sachet tutorial. I like sachets as a V-Day craft - they're quick and easy, and make such a sweet little gifty.
So, as I mentioned in the last post, I've spent the last 30 days in the gnarly finishing stages of my book deadline. And as I ground my way to that finish line, it occurred to me: nobody really talks about this stage of book-writing. There are lots of how-to's out there for the glamorous part (getting a craft book contract), but nothing about what happens once you have it.
