some exciting news!

 |  November 8, 2009

A few months ago I was contacted by someone from the Tyra Banks show about the possibility of including one of my journals in their Luxe Living event that happens once a year where 8 women win a gift bag of the industries top products. This year they are incorporating fabulous luxury chocolates, teas, handmade soaps, candles, and apparantly handmade journals!


Autumn Tree handbound blank journal
4 1/2 x 7 inches

I am excited to announce that they chose one of my handbound journals that I offer over at amanobooks.com as one of the items included in their event. Here is a link to the event and the other products that are going to be included too.

This is one of the reasons why I have been focusing more on creating my handbound journals than my paintings in the recent months! I had to get my inventory up not just for the holiday season, but also for the show. Better get back to work.

    As Leslie said, who wouldn't love such a unique journal? I'd put it on my list - but I'll probably only get coal...

    Well, I guess the Tyra Banks show people know what they're doing; they chose well. Congratulations, what great exposure for your wonderful books, and your art, too.

    You deserve it, Bridgette. I've been following your work for a long time now, and there is real soul in your creations (and in you too, I suspect).
