Today is THE day!

Today is a big day!  Not only is it election day here in the US, which affects a lot of people, but it’s a big day for me personally.  Today is the official release date of my book, Inspired You.  The book has actually been available for a couple of weeks, but now it’s widely available and the e-book is now available.
 The enhanced e-book will also be available soon through Apple.  The enhanced e-book is more than just the book in an electronic format.  There is a video for each chapter that shares additional tips and ideas.  I think Thomas Nelson also shows more of the pictures I submitted as well.  (I turned in over 500 and I think there are about 250 in the final copy of the book.)  
To give you an idea what the videos will be like, here is the Chapter 1 video – How to write neatly on a chalkboard… 

If you’d like to buy the book, it is available for purchase at these retailers…







I’m also selling it at Lucketts and some of my Milk Paint retailers are carrying it in their shops.

Thanks for all of the kind comments, reviews and support about my book.  It really has been overwhelming.

I also wanted to share what I was working on today…


Wowee!  I must say, this is the best upholstery job I’ve ever done.  I actually took the entire chair apart and used the pieces from the chair as a template and made decking… the works!  Usually I just staple fabric on in a haphazard way.  It ends up looking good, but it’s definitely not properly done.  I did things the right way and it’s amazing how much easier it was and how awesome it looks.  Go figure.  🙂  I did shortcut a few things, but nothing major.  I snapped pictures throughout the process, so I can hopefully walk you through some basics of upholstery.  I’ll try to take some videos when I do the second chair.  (It seems easier to explain things in a video.)  Look for those tutorials soon!
