Meet the Artists of Hello Color

Meet the Artists of Hello ColorOne of my favorite things about my book is that in the back, there is art that you can tear out to hang on your wall. That’s right, every copy of the book comes with an instant gallery wall! The pages are perforated making it easy to remove the art AND the book still lays flat after all the pieces are removed. It’s seriously worth the cost of the book alone (not like I’m biased or anything, but for real, you can order it anywhere books are sold like AmazonBarnes and NobleBook-A-MillionIndiebound, even your favorite local bookstore).

Today I thought it would be fun to show you a look inside at the art and to introduce you to the people I worked with to create such a special feature. Trust me, you’re going to want to follow these amazing women ASAP!  Continue reading…

Hello Color Launch Parties

Hello Color Launch PartiesI can’t believe how fast this year is flying. I’m in that pinch-me-haze because the book that I spent all of last year writing, is now launching in less than two weeks! And I can’t to celebrate with you!

I will be announcing additional July tour dates soon, but for those of you in Philly + NYC, I hope that you’ll join me in celebrating the release of Hello Color on the week it comes out. Here are the details:

A Look Inside Hello Color

A look inside Hello ColorWell friends, we are less than a month away from Hello Color’s launch date! Because I can’t wait any long to show you this project, and because I’m sure those of you who pre-ordered can’t wait either, I thought it would be fun to share a look inside today.

I poured my heart and soul and quite a bit of tears into this book (mostly because I wrote, styled, and photographed the whole thing), but I’m so proud of the end results and think it’s a useful book that you’ll love. Here’s a bit more of what you can expect when you pick up a copy for yourself (and everyone you know): Continue reading…
