Although the completed book doesn't need delivering until March I needed to create and write eight projects for what publishers refer to as the BLAD.
BLAD stands for "Book layout and design" and basically serves as a taster to book sellers and reviewers.It typically contains a few sample chapters or pages and as my book is all about making things for weddings I have been hot gluing, drilling, sewing,painting and writing like a demon to ensure the eight crafty Hors d'oeuvres I serve up are the best they can be.

|A sneaky peak of one of my projects|
As usual my friends have been fabulously supportive over the last few weeks. Lilly Von Pink has brought me craft supplies and helped me pull ideas together when Ive been overwhelmed (she is a very talented crafter so always a good go to person when having arts related melt downs) and the fabulous Bopalena has been a total rock. Offering to come and keep me company, checking in and when my sewing machine broke last week letting me descend on her with only a moments notice (she even helped me sew and made me herbal tea) so thanks girls.

I'm off to do a Vintage Pamper event today so have hit the pause button on crafts Boot camp for a few days. Hoping to be slightly more zen whilst completing the rest of the book-time will tell.
Have a great weekend.
