Next week, my new book ‘Home ‘ (published by Hardie Grant) officially hits the stores! OMG. So very exciting! I never thought I would make one book – let alone two!!
A bit about my new book: similar to ‘Find and Keep’, it is divided into 3 chapters, but this time there is a chapter each dedicated to what i think are the most important spaces in the house “Eating space”, “Living space” and “Sleeping space”. And also similar to “Find and Keep”, each chapter first has my photos (this time i took them of my very kind friend’s houses), and then DIY projecst to follow (25 of them in total). All the projects are things to make for your house, and also some are a bit more complicated that last time.
I am so happy with how it turned out. Really truly. I feel like it’s a fine-tuned version of Book number 1. Here are few spreads to whet your DIY appetite:
I have a flurry of events planned to launch the book. First off – Sydney launch! Sunday 27th October (that’s this sunday!) at Koskela (85 Dunning Ave, Rosebury) from 2-3.30pm. All welcome! Plus the first 10 purchases of “Home” come with a goody bag containing special things from Bahati Coffee, Bloom Cosmetics, Kester Black, Notemaker and ME!
Also, there are still a few spots left for my “Cork Coaster” and “Forever Cactus” workshops, also at Koskela on Saturday. I have also decided to donate 25% of my profits of the workshops to the Red Cross NSW bushfire appeal. So you can get crafty and help those in need!
MELBOURNE – your launch is next week – 1st of November – along with a MEGA GIVEAWAY on this here blog. Details coming soon. Overseas friends – UK edition will be in stores in late November through Hardie Grant UK, and US edition will be released March 2014 through Rizzoli. Will be worth the wait, I promise!
