~ My Book is Here!! ~

I'm sooooo excited to tell you my book has finally arrived!!
And the best part is I can tell you how unbelievably happy I am and how much I love it!! Whew! I was so nervous waiting for it! When you work on something and send it off to other hands you are never really sure how things will turn out. But I could not be more ecstatic! Seeing something you created come out as your vision intended was the best present and dream come true I could have asked for! I added a link and blog widget for it on the top right hand corner of my blog here, so if you're interested in ordering a copy just head on over to the link and order a copy. I would so appreciate it if you did :) I want to share my happy dance and little dream with all of you!!

Here are just a couple little teaser pages, and in addition when you view the book to order, it gives you 13 random pages to peek at in the preview also! I do want to make one very important note and statement here because I wanted everything to be perfect in it, and with the book, I am 100% in love with every single tiny detail and photo etc. But for the ebook {which I love too!} , I just wanted to let people know that you don't get the page ornaments around the titles of chapters or the exact same font. So I didn't want you to think that was my design lapse, it's just that the transferring of those aren't possible. But the ebook is just as gorgeous!

I loved every single page and nothing could be more surreal than sitting in my

comfy chair, tea in hand, than opening the page to a book that is mine, that I

wrote and photographed , and designed every detail , and that is SO me!

Thank you so much Blurb Publishing for the superb work and for making my dream come true!!

And of course, I could not have done nor would I have ever even thought of doing a book, if it were not for my friends, my family and all of YOU!! So thank you!!

Just a mix of a few more pages :)

I hope you can order a copy and enjoy this as much as I have! If you do, please leave me a comment so I can get feedback as to what you liked etc! That would mean so much to me! I received my copy super fast, so I'm very happy about the shipping too! Lets just put it this way, I am like a little girl all giddy and all smiles :)!!!

My photo of the book at the beginning of the post was a bit darker than I hoped, but in person everything is gorgeous and crystal clear! Like the one below :) This is the center of the cover :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and Passover weekend! I sure feel blessed and wish that for each and every one of you!!

ps: If you're ordering one and you have any questions, just send me an email and I'll be more than happy to help!

Big Hugs and kisses!

Cynthia xo

I just discovered your blog and book through Pinterest and I'm just blown away! Your minis and your style are absolutely gorgeous!!! I used to LOVE making miniatures but I haven't made any minis in years. You've completely pulled me back into the world of minis - I feel like I just rediscovered a lost love! I can't wait to get your book (I just ordered it) and I plan on getting lost in your blog over the next few days.

Thanks for all the inspiration and joy and beauty you're sharing in your blog!

I have just bought your ebook. Page 80 & 81&83 is it suppose to be blank? And also like to know how many pages are there? Not sure is there something wrong with the download.

Thank you
