Today, I’m going to share with you my process for how I wrote my book – and some things that you can do if you’re getting started writing your own arts and crafts (or DIY) book.

Growing up I always loved to read and write. My appetite for reading a good book is basically insatiable – once I get started it’s hard to stop. I always imagined what it would be like to write a book and dreamed that one day I’d be able to call myself a published author. About a year ago I started making the necessary steps to turn that dream into a reality, and I’m so excited that in just over a month my book Lettering With Purpose will be in stores and on shelves!
