A big thank you to everyone who came to the launch party for our new craft book, Make & Give. It was a fun (and large!) crowd at Powerhouse Arena, and almost every book was sold. It was great to see our close friends and meet new ones. We're so grateful to everyone who came to support us and celebrate with us.
Here are a few photos from the evening:
My sister and nephew helped wrap books and gave out our candy necklaces and buttons, based on projects from our book.
Some lovely friends -- these creative mamas inspire me!
With our awesome editor / publisher, Sara, from Roost Books.
My friend, Sammy Levine, made this short video of the event last night. He's such a talent (he put this together and emailed it to me a couple hours after the party -- amazing!). Hire this guy to shoot video for you, he's awesome (contact him at: email@example.com).
I got the new Paperless Post Holiday 2014 catalog in the mail. Styled by my friend Randi Brookman Harris and shot by Chelsea McNamara, it's a thing of beauty. I feel so lucky to be one of Paperless Post's design partners, and it's so much fun coming up with new card and invitation designs for them. I have brand-new designs for holiday invitations and photo cards for the season, and I'll share those here soon. (And they have a great deal right now for 20% off all paper orders and free shipping before 12/15; use the code CHEERS at checkout).

This was a big week over here! Because the craft book I've been working on quietly for the past two years just came out on Tuesday! It's called Make & Give: Simple and Modern Crafts to Brighten Every Day.
It's been a lot of work but such a joy to collaborate with my friend, Steph Hung on the book. One of the best things about the whole process was working with her, and we are both so happy and humbled to see the book out in the world and hear what people think.
There's more to say, and we'll share some behind-the-scenes photos and a bit about our process soon.
But for now, here are a couple things to note: we will have book events in Toronto (Steph's town!) and NYC (my city!).
