Before I get to the “big thing” I’m working on, I wanted to let you know about a special event happening at Lucketts this weekend. Not only is the Design House going to be open, but a very special guest will be there…Dinah Corley, the author of Gourmet Gifts, for a book signing. The book looks like a feast for the eyes and I’ve heard that Dinah is a delight. Here are a couple of photos from her website…
Beautiful, right? There will also be doughnuts to snack on while you’re shopping, a wreath-making demo on Saturday and smores and Christmas lights Friday from 5-8pm. Oh, I wish I could go! It’s going to be a special weekend, so try to make it if you can.
Speaking of Lucketts, I’m going there tomorrow to downsize my space. I’m moving to a small alcove in Karen’s room on the first floor. It’s a little sad to move out of my third floor room with beautiful light and freshly painted walls, but it’s a relief too. The space was a big one and I was struggling to keep it full. For the next three months, though, my space at Lucketts will mostly be maintained by my roomie and great friend, Karen. This scaling back is due to my big news. The “big thing” I’ve been talking about here and there.
Almost a year ago, I started writing a book and shared about it in a post. I planned to pick away at it and sell it as an e-book or through a self-publishing website. My business started to really pick up, so I put it on the back burner. Then, on a totally ordinary day, I received a call from a publishing company. After months of waiting and tweaking the concept, I received and signed the offer last week. I’m teetering between elation and terror at the moment, but I’m getting a big calendar to keep myself on track, Mini’s back to help and I know it’s in me to do this. Just keep me in your prayers, because I definitely need it! I’ll let you in on more details as they develop.
