I put together a short video to give folks an idea of what they will find in the Design-Your-Garden Toolkit book and sticker kit. In the video, I flip through the pages of the design and plant guide, and then I create an example of a plant combo I came up with using the design principles found in the book. It's really more of a book trailer than a "how-to" guide—perhaps I'll take a more in-depth look in a future video. Enjoy!
Our local independent bookstore, the Bank Street Book Nook in New Milford, Connecticut, was on the brink of shutting down a few weeks ago when a lovely person from a neighboring town decided to buy it and keep it open! Everyone in our little town is so thankful, especially since the last few months have seen our local coffee shop close its doors, which made everyone sad and scared for the future of our beautiful, historic downtown.
We wish the new owner buckets of success, and to help them celebrate their grand reopening, I’ll be joining Amanda Glover of Amanda Bakes for a double book signing at the Book Nook on Saturday, March 31st at 1pm. Amanda will have copies of her recent book, Sweetie Bake Your Day: Sweet and Savory Baked Goods Anyone Can Make, and I'll be bringing along plenty of copies of my new book Design-Your-Garden Toolkit.
