Judy's new book, The Lampshade Lady's Guide to
Lighting up Your Life. available at fine books stores near you or the all to easy alternative... But remember to support your local bookstore or lampshade maker:)
Over the past two years I have been told writing a book is like birthing a baby. Yes, they were all right. At many times it was as frustrating as a 2 year old child, maybe worse. I think the hardest piece of the puzzle was The WAITING for others to do their thing. And the best part was THE DOING. I loved the photo shots, even the how-to-shoots. I was dreading the details, getting everything perfectly straight and tidy. But had such a fun time with photographer George Bouret ;we had lots of laughs and a few hair pulling moments trying to get the perfect shot. Everyone in town poked their heads in to check out the excitement. Sure looked like something big was happening with lights flashing all day long. And it went on for days.
I even enjoyed the writing of my book. Fortunately my rambles were finely edited by freelance writer Kathleen Hackett. Especially fortunate for my editors at Potter Crafts. My blog has actually been a great venue for putting words to paper or perhaps screen. The last time I had really written anything had been college. How truly humbling to let my dear friend Angela Miller read my first book proposals... I felt like going to the principals office... I got over it pretty quick.'
So buy my book, check out the great photography and order some lampshade making supplies on- line. The book has lots of sources to find supplies which can be hard to find at a bricks and mortar store. There are tons of wicked cool trims online. I just found a new one before I started this entry.
I have a few events planned and hope to have more in the coming days. See prior blog for dates.
Next up: Northshire Bookstore Aug 27th 7pm, the greatest bookstore ever!!! Those of us that live here would be up a creek without them. More tomorrow on the event.
