has it really been a year already?
This is probably a good time to share a bit of exciting news. Back in January I was contacted through my etsy shop by someone from Lark books who had seen this moleskine case I had made and invited me to submit a proposal for their forthcoming book, Pretty Little Cozies.
Not being one to count my chickens (this is a very definite personality trait of mine, the non-chicken-counting one!), I didn't want to say anything about it until I was absolutely sure it was happening. So in spite of having had my proposal accepted and even a cheque in the post, I had my eye on the small print that accepted projects still might not make the final cut. So last week, I sent a tentative email to ask whether my moleskine organiser was in, and was told that it will indeed be in the book. Pretty Little Cozies is due to be published in May 2009 and I'm so very excited to see the book in the flesh!
Since then this organiser has been through quite a few different incarnations. This is one of the things that I love about etsy, that I so often get custom orders to tailor-make a design for someone in their own taste of fabrics and colours.
