Wow- hard to believe this gets to happen to me again. I am so excited and passionate about scrapbooking and I have always focused on encouraging and educating the new scrapbooker.
I had the opportunity to author The Complete Idiot's Guide to Scrapbooking the first and second edition in 1999 and 2002.
And of course the fabulous book I co-authored with the esteemed Aby Garvey, The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker in 2007. Luckily, a publisher picked up the rights and is reprinting the Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker as a paperback which will be out November of this year. Yeah!!!
and my newest book available September 15 2010 is called Start Scrapbooking.
This is what the promotional copy says.
