Today I get to share some exciting advancements on the book front– WE HAVE A COVER, which is actually starting to make this whole book thing feel really real. Since I’ve been working on this thing for almost two years now, sometimes it’s easy to get caught in all the tiny details and decisions (yesterday I had to cut out two pages, for example, and I can’t tell you how hard it is to choose what gets cut and what remains.) But, the cover is here and I am so thrilled to be able to share it with you guys finally.
The process of choosing a cover with a publisher can be daunting. The cover is SUCH a big deal, right? And there can be a lot of cooks in the kitchen, lots of ideas and lots and lots of opinions–and that is why I am SO happy to say that I genuinely love the cover and feel that it’s a great representation of what you’ll find inside all the 304 pages of the book. The cover shot was taken at the home of stylist Paige Morse who lives in Dallas, Texas. I really had a great time styling her home because (in case you can’t tell) she loves textiles just as much as I do. If you are curious to see some of the other designs that we played around with for the cover, I’ve posted up some of the runner-ups on Facebook.
So believe it or not, the book doesn’t come out for another five and a half months. Isn’t that crazy?? But in the mean time, you can already pre-order this bad-boy on Amazon–which is also very crazy. And amazing. And crazy. I’d love to hear your thoughts and the cover and I’m wishing you guys a relaxing weekend!
