I've talked with Amy on the phone before and she's always been super nice. Meeting her in person was no different - she was engaged, positive and had great ideas for spreading the gospel about her book (which I am psyched to work on as its all about DIY home decor). As I sat there listening to her, I kept thinking to myself, "I hope she doesn't mind that I want to be a groupie and take her photo!" She didn't mind.

Amy's book includes essays about some of her favorite moments in decorative arts history that pair with do-it-yourself craft projects for related modern decor. Check out some of the projects below!
I myself want to try making several of the projects in the book! What a fun day I had...surrounded by books and creative people! Does it get any better?!!
