It is the beginning of yet another busy week (I am shooting a magazine story this week) and I haven’t had much time to spend on my blog. I had a quick look through my archives and found these images that I took not long after I had finished my new book. The photos are not extracts, but part of a collection of objects I had near by, some of which did become props in the photos. My new book is on general release soon and if all goes to plan, a book launch will take place in late April. I have an exciting meeting later this week to discuss it and I will reveal more as soon as I can.
The very first copy of my new book arrived recently and it’s been great to finally see how everything has come together and I’m really happy with it. It’s exciting (and a bit nerve-wracking!) and I hope you all like it. It will be officially available from April 5th although it looks like Amazon may have already sent out some copies to those who pre-ordered early! In a similar style to my first book (which I recently found out is now a best seller for CICO Books!) The Homemade Home for Children contains 50 thrifty and chic projects for creative parents to make with and for children. It is not a book of projects for children to make on their own, but it contains ideas that can involve the whole family – children, parents, grandparents, friends or relatives – with illustrated step-by-step projects and quick ideas for all skill levels.
My little boy was very excited to see it as he appears inside the book along with his sister. Many of the projects were made with them in mind, using their drawings, for them to play with, dress up in and for their bedrooms. If you would like to get an idea of some of the projects in the book then you can see it in two fabulous magazines this month. I have contributed to the April issue of “the world’s best selling homes magazine” Elle Decoration, which has a four page feature, and also to the new issue of Junior – “the world’s finest parenting magazine”.
The book is available to pre-order on Amazon now:
