The Artful Year: Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Family Arts and Crafts

Update: Here's the link to the Autumn Crafts eBook sales page.

I want to
tell you about the new eBook that I mentioned briefly last week (and that will be available on Tuesday, September 18th): The Artful Year :: Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Family Arts and Crafts

This is the first in a four
book series on seasonal crafting and focuses on autumn crafts and recipes that
a family can make and do together. There are 76 pages of autumn leaf crafts, Halloween decorations and crafts, delicious apple and pumpkin recipes, and ideas for celebrating Thanksgiving.

Before I show you what's inside, I wanted to share what a couple of the folks on my awesome editorial team have said:

This eBook is filled with goodness – I was quite amazed at how much fun and accessible content is there. -Carol Chandran (blogs at 4Mothers1Blog and The Kings and I)

I have to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed reading your ebook! I don't think it has ever happened to me that I have read an arts & craft book or magazine that I wanted to do every single project and make every single recipe!! Amazing!! I have been going on about it to anyone who will listen!! (and I have many publications that I have purchased over the years for that one and only project that caught my eye…) The projects are all so do-able with widely available materials and ingredients…a must have for this budget conscious stay-at-home mom!! -Beth Firth

Those comments sure made my day! 

Okay, here's a sneak peak of some of the contents of The Artful Year :: Autumn

I had so much fun putting this Autumn crafts eBook together! I think you're going to like it!

P.S. There's a chance I'll make it available to newsletter subscribers ahead of time if I can get my ducks in a row…

    Congratulations on what looks to be a very promising book for crafting with kids. I can’t wait to grab a copy myself…I’ll be keeping an eye out. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Hello Jean! This looks great! In the post you write that it was available August 18—did you mean September? I can figure out how to access it…

    So very excited for this – this is just what I’m looking for. We’ve been having so much fun crafting and going on “signs of fall” hikes to collect leaves and acorns. This will give our autumn art momentum a sure boost. Thank you!

    Hurray! Looks like so much fun. Maybe especially so after the temperature drops below 90 in Texas?
