A Friend's New "Baby"!!!

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get almost as excited about good things happening to my friends as I would if good things were happening to me! And today ...


You see ... for some time now one of my bestest blogging buddies, the gorgeous and clever-clogs Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique has been scratching away with quill and feather by the light of a flickering candle ... well ... maybe NOT ... but that sounds a bit more romantic, right! Tee! Hee! Hee! She has instead been tapping away on her computer keyboard to write her very own E-BOOK!! WOO! HOO! How exciting is that!!! I've just about been bursting at the seams to stop myself telling people how excited I am for Kerryanne ... not to mention being kept in suspenders, waiting for Kerryanne to finally 'give birth' to her creative 'baby'.

WELL ... I need wait no more ... and neither do YOU! Cos today is THE day ... In conjunction with her dual birthday celebrations she is holding this week, Kerryanne is launching her e-book ...

"The Creative Mumpreneur: How To Take Your Craft Addiction From The Kitchen Table To Creative Business."

Now ... I was one of the first in line to read this baby hot off the presses ... you know how they show photos of people in sleeping bags outside shopping centres in the lead up to the huge Boxing Day sales??? I was a sleeping bag person when it came to Kerryanne's book! Tee! Hee! Hee! I've already read it from start to finish and I just KNOW that I will be referring back to it again and again ... and again ...! :0)

So ... what's it all about, I hear you ask??? Well .... it tackles one of the most recent trends ... Mumpreneurs, or WAHM's (Work At Home Mums). Many stay-at-home Mums are wanting to ... well ... STAY at home as their children grow up and are starting their own businesses to bring in a bit of play money, as well as give them a creative outlet. Since this is exactly what Kerryanne did 20 years ago (and continues to do very successfully today!!), her gorgeous book celebrates her business milestone by sharing some tips, tricks, hints and secrets that she has found have helped her in her business roller coaster ride. Isn't she a clever-clogs to have started her business when she was just about 5 years of age?!?! She must have, cos I'm sure she isn't any older than 25!! Tee! Hee! Hee!

I am not usually one to read "How To ..." books ... I tend to muddle along on my own, but since Kerryanne has been a wonderful source or information, encouragement and inspiration to me with MY little WAH business (I have to leave the M off the end ... unless you count that I'm 'Mum' to two badly behaved doggies and a hug of 'bearbies'! Tee! Hee! Hee!) since we first started 'chatting' about five years ago, I was keen to read her e-book. And I have to say, reading "The Creative Mumpeneur" was just like chatting to Kerryanne ... relaxed, fun, informative and VERY easy to understand ... even when she discusses subjects that are completely foreign to me ... like ORGANISATION! Tee! Hee! Hee! Add some of Kerryanne's GORGEOUS original artwork, some very practical hints, checklists and web links and throw in a FABULOUS craft project as well and you've got a winner!! :0) I can HIGHLY recommend this e-book to anyone who is thinking (dreaming!!) of starting their own work-at-home business and I think it would also be a great reference for gals like me who are already running a little business ... but could use a few tips on how to get better organised and grow their business.

Big CONGRATULATIONS!! to you Kerryanne on 'giving birth' to your 'baby' at last ... you've now put us both out of our suspense! Tee! Hee! Hee! And a HUGE ...


... to you ... one for Kerryanne and one for Woodberry Designs. I DID offer to sing Happy Birthday to Kerryanne twice ... one for each of her birthdays ... but she didn't take me up on that offer! Tee! Hee! Hee!

"The Creative Mumpreneur: How to take your craft addiction from the kitchen table to creative business" is now available from Kerryanne's website for just $29 ... a bargain for this type of "How To" book that I just KNOW you'll get your money's worth from cos you'll be referring back to it time and time again!! PLUS Kerryanne is giving people a chance to win their very own copy in a birthday giveaway on her blog, so hop across and visit her. And wish her a Happy Birthday while you're there! :0)

And since I can't actually be on hand in-person to help Kerryanne to celebrate, I think I shall go and celebrate by myself with a cup of Daintree lavender and camomile tea (my new hot tea drink of choice!!) and start reading my new e-book from the very beginning again ... I might have missed something! :0) Hope you're all having a great week and managing to fit in some stitching ... I'll show  you what I've been working on next time ... promise! :0) Til next time ...
