Pinterest Perfect! Giveaway (Closed)

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 would totally love this book. Lots of time in the summer. It would definitely be a great project for me to do.

  19. Harmony

    I always love checking this blog along with some of the others you’ve mentioned during my lunch break from my desk job. It gives me little inspirations to stay creative. Having a coffee table book would be equally exciting! ^_^

    Hey! I love your blog! I often look it up to see what creative you’re doing! My brother works for MudLove who you did a post on! I’m doing a drawing challenge similar to yours right now too.

  24. Beth

    It makes my day to see one of your blog posts waiting to be read in my inbox! This looks like such a good book

  25. Karen

    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.

  26. Stephanie

    Congrats on this collaboration! The book looks amazingly creative! Can’t wait to thumb through the pages to find my next DIY project!

  27. Makenzy Kaye

    I would absolutely love to win these! I am a little new to the blogging world but I am hoping to one day have one as inspiring and successful as yours! Thanks for all the creativity on here it is so much appreciated!

  28. Rachel Z

    That’s such a cool collaboration! Thanks for the giveaway- I would love to win the book, but especially your handmade cards :)
