Meeting Mark Montano & a BIG A$$ Giveaway!

****CLOSED****

This week I had the awesome opportunity to meet Mark Montano in person at the SoCal Social.
And not only did I meet him and hear him speak,
but he totally spent the day with us.



He walked the shops, joined in the crafty talk,
shared hilarious stories.
He is so much fun and down to earth.


(See! There's Mark's place card!)

He is so fantastic that he brought us all his new book
The Big Ass Book of Crafts 2.


Um, it's so new that it doesn't even come out until TOMORROW!!!
And he signed it!


Don't be jealous :)


Here's Mark sharing a little bit about Big Ass Book of Crafts 2.


One of the things I love about the book is it uses lots of
supplies that crafters/creative people have around the house.
He said that when he was growing up in a small town,
it drove him CRAZY when he had to have a specific doo-dad or
bead to complete a project from a magazine or book.

One of the first projects I want to try . . .



And because Mark is AWESOMESPICE!
He gave me a
Big Ass Book of Crafts 2

to giveaway to one of my readers!!!!!
