A year ago Heather and I would not have thought we would be sharing this news with you today! About last September we were contacted by some lovelies at Moda Bake Shop asking if we would like to be contributors in an upcoming book....um YES!!! We had a short deadline to get some samples and sketches together and submit them for approval. And they chose three of our projects!! Eeeek!! The book is called Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs:
The book is filled with awesome projects by way-more-awesome-than-us chefs for celebrations we all have year round, birthdays, holidays, back to school,etc.. I cannot wait to see the book in person!
So one October weekend Heather and I did something sneaky. VERY sneaky. Only five people knew about this until now. Our mom, me, my husband, Heather and her husband. I flew to Utah for the weekend and Heather and I crafted our hearts out! She picked me up from the airport late at night, we hit a Walmart for essentials nowhere near any friends or family and headed to my parents. Our parents were in England so we had their big beautiful home to ourselves and we got it good and messy. With the aid of some Lifetime Original Movies we completed all of our projects for the book in less than 72 hours! Not only did I not have any spare time to visit, but the book was top secret so we couldn't let anyone know I was in town!!
Here are our projects:
Isn't that banner pillow Heather made darling??
Super sweet birthday hats.
And a sweet valentine's mailbox!!
There you have it! We are so so so so excited :)
