Congratulations to you. I have long admired all of the things that you do, your generous spirit, your love of creating, family and just down right goodness on your part.
Hooray!! You deserve recognition for all of the above. Best to you and your wonderful family.

When I got to the link I went and bought one- as is my impulsive nature! I should have read down to the autographed part- it's ok! I am thrilled to have mine with or without - just the fact that you did it all yourself makes ME SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It makes it seem like anything is possible and I may have to get serious about publishing some of my own things- thank you for giving me hope! But, aside from that, I think that as long as you don't delete this Blog- it will always be here- right? Don't scare me with "as blogs will come and go", please! I know I sound like a whiny baby but I don't think there is another Blog like yours- at least not that I know of and my heart would have a tiny empty spot where your Blog would be if you were to stop...too sad to even consider- especially with this book being born! Congratulations my dear Blogging Friend! Oh- I stopped by to tell you about Lost announced it's 5th season will begin on Jan 21st with a 3 hour show! Yahoo! and Yahoooooooooo! Tell those girls to keep the sweet stuff baking because we're all gonna need some to celebrate!!!!
so very proud of you!'

Congratulations! It looks so fun!


Congratulations on your latest creative endeavor!


Oh my gosh! I am so excited for you! Please add me to the ~autographed~ list! Your blog has a special place in my heart, and I can't wait to receive your book!!!! Congratulations! ~Mandy

I am adding my congratulations. What an accomplishment! Put me in line for an autographed copy. I have some money left over from my birthday and have been waiting for this moment.


Yours was one of the first blogs I read and I was, and still am, so inspired by you! I really loved your first banner and every time I clicked on your site I knew there was going to be something wonderful to see. You and your daughters are so talented and how lucky you are that you can share all of this with them! I can't wait to get the book! I'm sure we'll all buy anything else you want to publish, too.



Congratulations Vicki! I'm so very happy for you. And impressed! But I've always been impressed by your talent.


Congratulations!! What an achievement!! Most of us can only dream about publishing our own craft book, well done!!


Wow! How inspiring...as always! Congratulations on a job well done!


lovely! your book looks fabulous. congrats!

Laura Bray

Congratulations. You are an inspiration to all of us!


Oh I'm so happy to hear this news! I definitely want my copy autographed, so add me to your list please.


Congratulations! I'll take an autographed one also. As I read it, I will be dreaming I am sitting there having a sweet from the girls and getting instructions from you.

 Cicada Studio

What an accomplishment! Congratulations! Your work is lovely. I wish you much success.


Congratulations. I am sure the book is as interesting as your lovely projects.

Congratulations, Vicki! I have been waiting for this--put me down for an autographed copy, please! :) The thought of not being able to visit your blog makes me very sad--eeek--don't ever leave us! I learn so much and am so inspired when I stop by. Your daughters/brownie moment brought a tear to my eye--complete sweetness. Have a lovely day! :)


Congratulations! The book looks lovely. Here's hoping Santa gets my wish list ...


Congratulations. You did a terrific job. I just ordered a copy. Thank you.

Not sure if I can get an autograph one through the Create Space site, but I ordered one. If so, that would
be dear. I'm so excited for you and the beauty you create!

Heidi Woodruff

Congrats on the final "do"! I'm excited for you. I've been inspired by this project for quite a while (the start, maybe?) and have a matalasse spread I've been using for projects...think of you every time I cut it! Please put me on your list for the autographed copy! And, the girls too!!!!!
Heidi Woodruff


This looks wonderful...what a great accomplishment! It's on the list once I get a few things completed from the other wool felting books you inspired me to buy ;)


What a concept, I love it!


Congratulations! The book looks lovely and is such a great idea.


Put me down for a copy with your John Hancock on it please!! You can figure out some brilliant inscription to me, your the author.LOL!!!!
So happy for you :-)))


Mine came in yesterday's mail! Congrats and it is LOVELY!!!!


how wonderful!

I am just entering this book writing phase and am feeling a bit overwhelmed with what may lie ahead of me, but I HAVE to write this book on felt crafts for little fingers. I had taught classes to little ones (some of them are my own) this past year and made up some cute projects and love them so much I want to put them in a book.

Thanks for the encouragement.
