Firstly my friends, vast apologies for disappearing on you the last few days. I got to ride in an ambulance for the first time this week. I am hoping that to be my first and last. This is my first day back on computer and though wobbly and pale, i am happy to say i am healing well. Good excuse for an unexplained absence, no?!
Secondly, a big welcome to new readers who found GrowMama through the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway this week. Thank you for all your lovely comments, i have starting reading through them and will draw the winner tonight and announce in the next blog post. Wonderful!
And thirdly, i bring you...my book!
Everyday Beauty: finding magic in the mundane.
GrowMama is a member of Kiwi Mummy blogs and Sarah asked me if i wanted to review making a book with Blurb.com. Did i ever!
I want to put the blog into hardcopy book form and this was a great opportunity to trial the software. And for free too. Thank you KMB for the opportunity to make the book.
For those of you considering making a book with Blurb.com...my advice is to check it out. I found the software easy to download (i used BookSmart) and use and Blurb's customer support was fast and unerringly helpful. I will be using Blurb.com again.
Everyday Beauty is a photo book with minimal text...beautiful pictures and words i hope are gentle and tap into a wisdom greater than mine. I will feature sneak peeks into the book over the coming time.
It would make a beautiful gift to new parents or those needing a infusion of inspiration. Makes me wish i had a coffee table to put it on!
You can preview the book, and buy it HERE.
Kraftbombers: I won't be at Kraftbomb market tomorrow...i don't think i can manage a market quite yet, but i will miss being there. Sigh. For those who aren't in the know: Kraftbomb is held at Grey Lynn Community Centre in Auckland from 11-2pm for those in the area...one of the best handmade craft markets out.
