Oh hi again, it's been a while ... You might have wondered where I've been over these past months.. Or not... Either way I thought I would let you know I'm still rockin' steady, and moreover I have been working on writing a book! Actually 2 books! (Coming soon)
If you know me, you probably don't believe any of this tale. I don't blame you, I hardly do either. Is this real life?? Haha If you had of told me a year ago I would be an artist/author of a "Paint Your Own Mandala Stones" book, that is included as part of a box "kit" with stones, brushes, and paints, that is sold half way across the world.. I would have laughed and likely questioned your sanity.
But as unlikely as it may have been, I am now happy to say it's true and wow, how cool is that?!
Now I certainly didn't come up with this all my own. I have many, many thanks for Hinkler Books, an international publisher based in Australia.
They contacted me way back in the fall asking if I was interested in collaborating on this project to write a step-by-step instruction and take photos along the process of creating painted stones. And they would publish it and it would be a fantastic do-it-yourself kit. It really sounded "too good to be true" (my father's words). But now, 24 pages, 8 stones, and many photos later I have received the final product. It is in my hands. This is real life :)
So I guess this is one of those things, where I can honestly say that if you do what you love good things will happen. Whatever it is. And even if it sounds too good to be true, believe it and believe in yourself anyways. Because if something like this can happen to me, I guarantee it can happen to you too. :)
If you're wondering how you can have one of your very own, I currently do not have any of the kits in stock but they can be found online and through www.hinkler.com. I do have some copies of just the booklet without the supplies, these can be found on my etsy page while supplies last. Any other inquiries please contact me, I would be happy to hear from you.
Thank you again to Hinkler Books for the opportunity. And thank you to all of my friends and family for encouraging me along the way. YOUrock!
Until next time ...Don't forget to think happy dots !
