torie jayne's book and a ticket giveaway to the country living magazine spring fair in london


I have long admired the beautiful aesthetic of blogger Torie Jayne so I was excited when she added my blog to her blog roll and am still beyond-thrilled that she asked if I would contribute to her first book, How to Show & Sell Your Crafts. To find my name among her assembled crafty-blogger rockstar team is ... searching for words ... really validating.


As followers of Torie's blog would expect, this book is beautiful and useful; the kind of book I remember searching for years ago and never quite found. In addition to being a visual swoonfest, it truly is a practical handbook for anyone interested in not only showing and selling but organizing and creating.

My creative board
Thank you again to Torie for inviting me to part of this brilliant book.

 

The photos of the Girlie Office and me were taken by my friend, the lovely and talented photographer Marisa Bettencourt, who also photographed my author pics for both of my books.
Recently I was approached by the Country Living Spring Fair with an offer to attend. Sadly, it's just not in the cards BUT I am able to offer my two tickets in a giveaway to readers. The event takes place from 19-23 March in the Business Design Centre, London. 



Ouch. I really would love to go to this! There will be all kinds of craft workshops, garden talks and demos. It looks pretty amazing.

If you plan to be in London between 19-23 March, please enter to win a pair of tickets by leaving a comment on this post stating so -- as I realize not every comment will be an entry. For an additional entry, please follow me on Twitter at #tinkeredtreasrs and Tweet that you would like to win tickets. Entries accepted through March 3, 2014. Winner announced on Twitter.

Congrats to my friend through this wonderful online world Torie Jayne, on her brilliant book and best of luck to any readers hoping to win tickets!

The Spring Fair sounds heavenly...wish I could just climb into my George Jetsonmoble and fly over. Visiting London is on my bucket list.
I must look for Torie's book...she has a love of those colors we drool over. I was just pouring over your Tinkered Treasures book the other day looking for a gift idea for a friend. Just looking at the pictures in that book is so cheery on a grey day.
I hope you had a chance to see the afghan Twyla, of Two Crazy Crafters, made for me. Totally Cath inspired.
Hope it warms up soon...I'm so tired of winter.
