Sneak Peek Michaels + Behind the Book

Gaylord Texan 334 of 611 12 Sneak Peek Michaels + Behind the Book

We’re just getting back into the swing of things since being in book overdrive and will soon have lots of fun behind the scenes to share.  Above is a sneak peek of a really fun trip I took to Texas recently with the Michaels Executive team and some very crafty bloggers aka “The Michaels Creative Crew.”  This was a very fun and informative trip and I’ll give you the full behind the scenes on that next week {warning – it was packed with great stuff so there will be multiple posts!}

In the meantime, a little “behind the book” to give you an update on where we are on the book process.   I promised you all I’d keep you in the loop with what I can so here is an update.  Yesterday, my publisher Hyperion sent over a mock up of the book cover!   For those who follow us on twitter and facebook, you may know that we had a cover shoot last week with Johnny Miller.  So really fun news is that I’m on the cover {not easy to land!}  It is totally surreal to look at this mock cover with me on it.  It was definitely a “pinch me moment” when I opened up the email with the mock cover. Gals and guys…don’t give up on your dreams because it really can happen.  If there is anything I can impart to you, it is that.  Next week the AAE team has a bunch of book meetings.  We have marketing meetings, sales meetings, and interior design meetings with the publisher.  Hyperion has been incredibly supportive and I’m so happy I’m playing a role in every step of the process.  I’ll continue to share what I can as we get ready to roll this baby out for Spring 2012.

We’ll have a guest feature up this afternoon {+ the winner to yesterday’s July 4th printable giveaway} and definitely come back for the Michaels fun {and some great July 4th inspiration} next week. Have a great weekend! xoxo
