I can't wait to have my very own copy! Will you have any available that you have signed?

Cynthia Granmo Riebe

Congratulations! When I was on a couple of weeks ago, I saw that the book was pre-orderable (is that even a word?), and I pre-ordered it. I CAN'T WAIT for it to come out!
I can't think of anyone who deserves this success like you do - you who share your beautiful life and self with all of us.


Oh, it's beautiful!! I have the same question as Kim - any chance of signed copies for your faithful blog stalkers??? Puh-leeeze? Pretty puh-leeeze with a cherry on top?

Kelley Hart-Jenkins

It looks beautiful! The projects look fabulous. I want it now so I can start making Christmas presents! November huh? Maybe I'll get the book for Christmas, and make presents for '09?! Must think ahead. Can't wait!


SMILE SMILE coming your way. Congratulations! That has to be so exciting to see your work in a great looking book. It is just so cool...


Ok I am really planning ahead right now but I would LOVE to write a review of your book! I'm gonna get in touch with my editors and see if they like the idea. I'm sure they will. :)


Congratulations!!! It looks AMAZING, and I can't wait until it comes out!


Oh, so much congratulations coming your way. We're all so thrilled for you and can't wait to get our own copy.

And for all the nice things you say about us, I know I speak for many when I tell you how much reading your blog every day means to us. It's just a breath of fresh air and a little bit of joy reaching out across the net. Thank you, Alicia, for all the little happiness you give to me.

Wow, a! Congratulations to you! Looks like you purged your bookshelves at the perfect time!

Michaele Sommerville

Congratulations!!!! Really, you need to go outside, take in a deep, slow breath, then WAHOO at the TOP of your lungs!

Amy H

I am so thrilled for you and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of my very own. Congratualtions, Alicia, I know it will be gorgeous!


Oh my gosh!! I love it! I can't wait until its out, I'm going to buy a few of them as gifts and of course one for me! You must be so thrilled!


I am so excited! I am really looking forward to the book. It looks absolutely fabulous. You must be so proud.


congratulations, alicia!! it looks gorgeous.


Congratulations!!! I LOVE that rickrack-decorated pillowcase on the back cover.

Holly C.

I can't wait to own this book! I saw the cover on Amazon and I was wondering if that was Arden. How perfect!


cindy k

if not signed books, maybe signed bookplates?

duh to me re: the link to amazon, which you included in your post. i was just so excited for you i had to comment right away!


I am so happy for you. I've been reading you blog for several months. You inspire me to craft more & follow my dream. Thanks


Putting this on my birthday wish list. Don't be really takes a lot to put yourself out there and you, of course, have done a beautiful job with your book. Just can't wait to see it!

Melissa C.

Alicia, that is so awesome! The cover looks fantastic, and very much your style. I'm glad your publisher "got" you so well.

I hope you know how much we friends/fans out here in blog-land share in your excitement over this great achievement of yours! Thanks for taking us along for the ride. :D


Congratulations. Cheers and flowers and applause and a deep down sincere smile with tears in the corners of my eyes, and I cannot explain it, but I just feel elated for your accomplishment. I want to hold your book.


CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That's so exciting, and I'm sure that, as nerve-wracking as it is to put so much of yourself out in the public eye, that it will be loved and appreciated by so many people. Happy bookselling!


Congratulations! The cover is just beautiful and really reminds me of you. I've already pre-ordered mine and can't wait to see it. You should really feel proud and accomplished and yummy inside :)


How fantastic! :)
