I’m nervous.  I can’t help but be nervous.

What if you don’t like it?  What if I don’t like it?

At the end of the day, though, I chose to put it out there.  And I really do feel great about the finished product.

I wholeheartedly followed my gut, my mind, and my heart when I began writing “Creating Your Masterpiece.”  

It never occurred to me that I would come to love the process and the content so much that I could hardly stand to part with it.

Maybe that’s why we’re having such issues uploading it into the fancy, interactive software.


We’re on it, and despite that fact and the fact that we’ve all been so sick, we are still shooting for Monday.  If not Monday, as soon as we can possibly get it working!!!

I wanted to share a little bit about the book here with you guys, though, as you are the ones that absolutely inspired me to get writing.

You’ll be getting 203 pages, 3 video tutorials and 226 photos, packed with almost everything I could fit in one book without being excessive.


We’ll cover a ton of information: painting with a brush, painting with a Wagner, priming, stripping, staining-2 techniques, distressing, glazing, glazing with stain, go-to sealants, whitewashing, dry brushing, layered paint treatments, painting new construction to cover solidly and to celebrate the grain, staining new construction (both ways as above), and more.  WHEW!

But more than that, we’ll talk about your vision, your inspiration, your finished product.  There’s a section on finding your vision, hardware, and styling/photo gallery for inspiration.  You’ll also see some of you!  There’s a reader project gallery that celebrates those of you who submitted a project.  Add in a Resource Index of products I use, and I’m not sure I could have fit much more.

Here’s the awesome news:  You guys will have first dibs at the book at the discounted price of $9.99!! If you want to know information as it becomes available, sign up for the email list here.  Be sure to leave your email address on that post…not here. 🙂

Stay tuned!
