Hello! Hello! Look what arrived in the mail today... A real, live copy of my book! (Thank you Hawthorn Press and thank you once again.) Around here, we have nicknamed it "The Big Book of Tiny Dolls" -- clocking in at 192 pages, it's a hefty little tome. There's been quite a lot of happy hopping up and down in our house this evening, and the pages have been turned over and over. We can hardly believe our eyes. These are images we've seen so many times while working on the book, but it seems very different once it's been printed on paper, all tidy and bound.
This little person had fun looking at the photo of himself in the book...
And he also loved looking at the "dollies."
The bad news is that the book will not be widely available until after the winter holidays. The good news is that the book will be available in time for creating Valentines Day peg dolls, and certainly in time for Easter crafting, too. Peg doll bunnies? Tiny, yellow peg doll chickies? Oh, yes!
Stay tuned -- there will be a blog tour and book give-aways in early February. I know it seems a long way off, but planning is already underway...
Thanks for all your excitement and support -- I can't wait for you to see the book, too!
