Here is a sneak peek of something I have been working on for 3 or 4 years now. It is my biggest procrastination!! Its a book about bookish people and creatures doing bookish things, a picture book with a small 2 lines of text (so, not huge).
I think I have procrastinated for so long because I fear it being a failure- a flop!
I even created a few limited edition brooches for it a few years ago that have just been sitting in my studio doing nothing.
But I have realised that I need to get it done and published and stop worrying too much about failure, because when did that ever get anyone anywhere?
So, on that note, I am going to sell the limited edition brooches to fund-raise the printing of the book. The two designs I have done are the Cat on a Stack and the Bookshop Snail which I will package in our old keepsake jewellery tins to make them extra special.
Yes, this is an exercise to keep me accountable and finish this book!!!
There is only 100 of each brooches made and the dies to cut the design have been destroyed so there wont ever be any more.
The sale of the brooches will cover the cost of the print run and the design and layout of the book. I would then hope to have the book published before Christmas. No more excuses!!...lol
The brooches will be available this Thursday at 12pm AEST.
