The book is in, at Amazon!

Well , cool, it appears the book got to Amazon and is being shipped out earlier than they had expected!  Rachel Kopel on our open Facebook group just announced it, and I'm excited to hear what you all think. 

This spread, part of the "Designing Your Pages" section, shows a couple of mine up top, with friends and blog co-authors Nina Johansson, Pam Johnson Brickell and Ellen Burkett arranged at the bottom.  As you can see, the book is just FULL of ideas on designing pages (the top entry in our poll at right!)

This spread is on memory pages...my grandmother's necklace and a childhood toy, plus blog co-author Vicky Williamson's visit to grandchildren and Roz Stendahl's "Daily Dots," her daily project sketching her beloved dog.

Here are a couple of representative spreads, but I'd recommend you go to Amazon and click "Look inside!"  LOTS more...

Meanwhile, I just got off the phone with Nicole Miller, North Light's terrific new fine arts publicist who has so many ideas my head is spinning.  How about a podcast?  Webinar?  Interview?  Babble babble...

Having kept journals for 40+ years, and being completely committed to the benefits, creatively, personally, and even spiritually, I can't tell you how delighted I am

Some of the books on journaling written 30-50 years ago are being reissued...tells you something, doesn't it!  (We'll do some reviews as we get the chance...)


  1. So excited for you, Kate!! It looks scrumptious! :)

  2. I got notice yesterday that mine was going to be shipped off this week. So I am very excited. I look forward to more inspiration.

  3. Thanks, Rita, they did a WONDERFUL job, as did all my artist friends who shared their work and words!

  4. Yes, I got that notice from Amazon, too! I am SO looking forward to this book!! Looking forward to, to your podcast, webinar(?), interview...what ever else you decide to do.

  5. Hope you guys like it! I'm very pleased...

  6. Looks wonderful, Kate. Can´t wait to get my hands on that book! :)

  7. I'm drooling over pictures of this book . . . still no sign of my copy. But how cool to see two of my grandchildren in one of the spreads above!

  8. We're dancing and ready for mailbox surveillance :) Congrats, Kate!!

  9. This is such exciting news. I am so looking forward to seeing it in print!

  10. Thanks all! Alissa, I hope it doesn't take TOO long to get to you...those out of the US will take longer.

  11. Yep, Kate, Amazon just notified me, too, that your book is on its way. Yay.

  12. I got mine last night and I LOVE it. It's even better than I'd imagined. I honestly think this one will become a classic--it has so many good things in it. I couldn't put it down once I opened it, and I know I will pick it up over and over again. So many good people I know from blogs/flickr, etc are in it, too, that it will be a delight: it's like visiting with friends, and seeing all those different styles all in one place. Really nice, Kate--I think it's definitely my favorite of your books so far, and they're all good.


We'd love your feedback...please share your thoughts!
