Thank you SO much for all the book love! 
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that y'all are so enthusiastic about it.
Here are a couple of outtakes I shot for the cover.
The one that did make the cover was my super favorite from the start
even though it doesn't have a bird on it! ;-)

I have admired your work for so long on your blog. Congratulations on the book! I am so excited to buy it! I try hard to make cute stamps but I can barely make simple designs without ruining them! Hopefully your book has some good tips :) You are an inspiration.

xo, Ally

Gorgeous stamps and gorgeous cover. Stamps are something I've been wanting to make for a while now, but with all our moves, I just never seem to be able to find the space, materials, or time. We'll be settling down for 4 years at a new address this fall, so I hope to start then. Your book would be the perfect way to get that start, I think!

Thanks for the preview of the book. The stamps are gorgeous. How did this book come about? Did you have the idea and then shop around for publishers or did someone know your work and approach you with the idea of a book. I was wondering the same thing for your line of cards, etc., how does one break into that business. Thanks

Hope to hear from you
