Hi, sweet friends! In just a few short weeks it will be one year since the release of my first book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, and it’s hard to believe time has flown by so quickly. It feels like just yesterday I was signing my contract and spending the next five months up to my eyeballs in a complete kitchen renovation, creating seventy new projects for the book, using every spare second I had to write tutorials and working on styling and photographing my entire house and every project in the book. Phew… I’m exhausted and stressed out just typing that and remembering how crazy those months were! Now you know why book number two hasn’t been started yet haha!
The reason I’m mentioning this upcoming book anniversary is because I want to do something special to celebrate the big day, and I can honestly say that I owe every bit of success for this book to all of YOU! You are the reason I decided to go way out of my comfort zone and put my decorating ideas not just on the blog, but in a book that you could have and hold and keep on your shelf for inspiration. You were the support and cheerleaders I needed during those crazy months of writing the book. You got just as excited as I did for the big book release last December, and all of you who purchased a copy (or many copies!) of the book to keep or share with friends and family made this book a huge success! And for all of that, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
Over the last year, I’ve seen many of you sharing the projects you’ve made from my book, and I wanted to showcase and celebrate all your beautiful creations as a way to say thank you! I can’t tell you how happy it makes my heart to see you decorating and loving your home, and if you were inspired in some small way by my book… wow, what an honor!
So here’s the deal:
Take a pretty picture of your project (or as many as you’d like!), and share it on Instagram with the hashtag #atouchoffarmhousecharm – if you tag me (@lizlovegrowswild) in the photo, it also helps me find your post easily! And if you happened to mention the book would make a great Christmas gift, I wouldn’t mind that either haha! 😉
If you don’t have Instagram, that’s okay too! Just send me an email at [email protected] and attach your picture in the email. Just put Farmhouse Charm Projects in the subject line!
Please have all submissions posted or sent in by Sunday, December 3rd, and then keep an eye on the blog and social media for the features on December 6th!
