a few book notes...

i hope you do not mind, but the flow of postcards landing on your door mats must be interrupted with some book notes i feel worth noting...

note one:
last week on UPPERCASE was 'dottie angel week', which as i mentioned before is terribly thrilling after all i have never had such a thing happen to me. seeing all the photos Janine shared on the book's progress and some behind the scene things made me most smiley. if you missed book week over at Janine's lovely place, then you can catch up here, just keep on scrolling down the page to see all her posts and pictures

note two:
for anyone wondering where UPPERCASE magazine and books are stocked, you can find out details here and also i am rather delighted to be told the lovely store Ray Stitch will be opening soon and will stock my book. i can only imagine just how lovely their store is going to be.

note three:
worthy of brewing a cup of tea and having a few minutes sit down to enjoy, a little video showing the printer proofs by Janine,

dottie angel book proof from UPPERCASE gallery on Vimeo.

thank you kindly to all those who have pre-ordered our book, Janine and myself are beyond delighted by the response. also gold sticky stars (hurrah, hooray! i love a gold sticky star, especially on mondays, 'cause mondays can be a little dull) to those who helped out in making the extras which come with the book, look as peachy as they do.

she will be scribbling another postcard tomorrow ~ Tif

I love the postcards! and I really enjoy reading your blog.

Katie said...

I want to pre-order it so much! I've got to get the man to buy it for my birthday, because I can't justify buying yet another book when I'm buying loads for school...
Okay, I can. I probably will. It's so pretty! :) I'll probably blow my whole month's book budget on it, just to read all your ramblings.

Pre-ordered your book yesterday before seeing your lovely sneak peek video! Now, I am even more glad I ordered it. Can't wait. I just picked up a crochet hook again (after two years) after reading your blog! Thank you for your wonderful inspiration!

summerfete said...

Wow it looks amazing, you must be thrilled!

Trace said...

oh so looking forward to it! Yeah!!!

Pink Milk said...

Woo hoo, I've pre-ordered mine through Uppercase! The shipping cost to the UK is not so bad - knowing I'll get it warm off the press makes it worth it!

Just love the way Janine pronounces 'crochet'! :-)

I placed my order for your peachy book the other day and will be camping out by my letterbox eagerly awaiting it's arrival down under. I can't wait!!

martha brown said...

Oh, Tif! The book is going to be wonderful! I preordered it AGES ago, and I can't believe that it is almost here. Yay! Oh, and pre-congratulations of course!

Michelle said...

Oh how I love a little video preview...
Just lovely...
and was most delighted to see one of the pages with my little gift doll on it...She is sure to be blushing with joy there in Mossy Shed...and most happy that I sent her to live in such a lovely abode...with all of her new "foresaken friends"...and not forgetting her new found stardom...

Maize Hutton said...

Oh my....it's going to be a lovely book. I'm going to cherish it!! :)

I'll Take The Scenic Route said...

Of COURSE it is going to have a VERY tactile cover - anything else would not be "Dottie Angel".
Looking forward to it. Carolina

It's so neat to see the behind-the-scenes progress of these projects. It's amazing how many little details are involved. I LOVE the self-applied postcards and fabric labels. What a perfect, creative book!
