Chapter Two and Lunch…
It was another great day in the studio. We were able to complete the step outs for all of Chapter Two which means we’re halfway done. Completing each technique means I am that much closer to having this book in my very eager hands. I can’t wait to see it all finished. I do believe you all are going to LOVE it just as much as Delight In The Details.
This is the table where all the supplies I need to recreate each of the 40 techniques in my book are placed. Yesterday this table was completely covered. It’s nice to see some empty space on it now. Each baggie is filled with supplies and marked with the chapter and technique numbers. Being organized like this helps speed up the process just a tad and keeps me calm. Freaking out is not a pretty thing.
This box is filled with supplies I’ve already used to recreate the techniques in Chapters one and two. There are 20 baggies in this box and it’s great watching it fill up slowly.
And this table has 45 book projects on it. Just wanted to give you a little tease of what I’ve created so far. It’s so nice to see the ones I sent back in late November, again. Once I get home I will be finishing up the remaining projects and it will feel awesome to ship them on to Jenni.
This afternoon, I got to go to lunch with some of the sales staff. I always find this lunch to be very helpful as they sell my book to Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, Borders, Barns & Noble, Amazon and Crafters Choice. I left there with further info on how to keep my book sales up and popular in this market. F+W Media really does want their authors to be successful. They have a great format for you to follow which I do to a “T”.
So tomorrow, we begin Chapter three and I think I’m going to try some of the fabulous Cincinnati Chili for lunch. I hear you can’t come to Cincinnati and not eat their chili. It might be a good chili day too as we might get some snow tonight. Well see.
