It was a rainy, soggy, but fantastic evening to celebrate the book this past Saturday- which is officially out tomorrow! Drygoods is the perfect place to hold an event like this, and I was so truly excited to see all who came out in the middle of all the rain we had. Peter displayed as many projects from the book as could be packed onto the party room's center table, laid out by season (as the book chapters are done). It worked to help spotlight the strong color palette of each seasonal chapter. We also had a table set up for making recycled flowers (a project that runs throughout the chapters in the book) and throughout the night, gave away several sets of bunting made from the materials used in the book... music sheets, leather, felted sweaters, corduroy pants, etc. The power went out for about and hour for some unexplained reason (turned out some drunk guy flipped the main off in the building, gah!) and we all just kept on, powered by our phone's glow. Pretty funny.
Thank you everyone for your support, it was so fun to celebrate with you! After all the hard quiet work that goes on behind the scenes when a book is being written, it is so nice to just celebrate!
And now? I am going to do a little free play in the studio, with some good music, and no thoughts to impending deadlines of craft projects and manuscripts. Just make something because I want to! Imagine!
