Pinterest Perfect! Giveaway (Closed)

May 6th, 2014

Last year I had the privilege of collaborating with Walter Foster Publishing on Pinterest Perfect!, a book filled with loads of step-by-step, crafty DIY projects. At last the book has been published, and it’s so exciting to see it in print! Marisa Edghill, Ronda Palazzari, Gemma Correll, Jamielyn Nye, Khristian A. Howell, Molly Jacques, Flora Chang, and I each created a handful of projects for the book. Flipping through really is like browsing Pinterest in book form. You can check out the three watercolor projects I contributed below.

Pinterest Perfect! is available for purchase here from Amazon or here from Barnes & Noble, but the folks at Walter Foster Publishing kindly offered me two copies to give away! If you’d like to win a copy please leave a comment below by Friday May 9th. Each winner will also receive two of the original watercolor cards I painted for the book (pictured below).

This giveaway is open only to those with USA shipping addresses.

EDIT: Thank you so much for all your great responses to the book—your support and encouragement mean the world to me! I used a random number generator to choose the winners, and they are Kristin K and Noel!

    I’ve noticed when people make things seem really easy they are usually very good at what they do. The rule is not lost on you! I adore the sweet and slightly sassy cards you produce. I love that you work in collaboration with your father. I admire (and try to emulate) the photography style on your blog. I am in awe of natural talent such as you possess. The collection of ideas in book form, complete with a Pinterest publisher, is a beautiful marriage of all these qualities….it would be so nice to hold it in my hand.
