I cannot even begin to express how surreal it is for me to see my name in print. On the cover of a book. A real book that is currently for sale on sites like Amazon.com and BN.com and Indiebound.org and Books a Million.
When I started blogging, never in my wildest of dreams did I think I would become a published author. Of a kids craft book. Using mason jars. MASON JARS, OF ALL THINGS!!!!
Two years ago, I knew nothing about mason jars. I had never used them. I had never purchased them. They intimidated me.
And now? Now they have taken over my life.
My dining room table is overflowing with mason jars in various stages of painting and distressing.
Somewhere along the line mason jars have become my legacy. I mean, just take a look at my new book cover up there. My name burnished on the cover of a mason jar craft book. For kids …
It’s available at Amazon.com and BN.com and Indiebound.org and Books a Million.

Congratulations, Linda! Yay!!
And it’s pretty exciting to “know” a blogger that is publishing a book. You work hard to bring us many wonderful projects we can use in our homes to decorate them or use them for a purpose. I can only imagine how much work getting a book together with that many projects took for you. Oh you have a life besides being an author and blogger? CONGRATS TO A GREAT GAL, couldn’t happen to a nicer more talented person. Happy days Linda
Thank you so much for you amazingly kind and supportive words!!!! You made my day! You made my days Happy!!! 🙂 Linda
