Out and About: Book Sighting!
So I'd been planning to make a little trip (15 minute drive) up to Archiver's sometime soon (click on that link to find a location near you), ever since I learned that all the Archiver's locations across the country (map above shows their 40+ locations) would be stocking my book! (Just had to see it there in person, you know?) These are terrific brick and mortar stores for things stampy and scrappy, check to see if there is one near you if you have not yet been! Well, anyway, it's not showing up in their online catalog, BUT the lovely and talented Christine Monzingo emailed last week and said she saw it at the Cedar Park location* and after telling them I live I Austin, they said they might be interested in having me do a book signing, squeal! I will keep you all updated on that and would love for you to swing by if you are in or around the Austin area (or beyond the Austin area if you are willing to travel for that, God bless!) so I can meet you if that happens. I'm praying it will!
SO I just had to go the next day, of course (hee hee, why wait any longer?) Yep, there it was, only two copies left! Honestly, I was more than a little tempted to take a picture of it sitting on the shelf (in Archiver's! ARCHIVER'S!!) but you know, I didn't... trying to play it cool... ; (this photo is from their website, I did not whip out my phone!)
Now, the cooler part of this story, after browsing around for a few more minutes, I took some adhesive** to the counter to purchase, and what do you know, two ladies were there at the register browsing through... MY book! One bought it (and both told the employee to order the stamp sets for the store! squeeeeal) so I signed it for her. She'd never been to my blog before, but I do hope she stops by in the future! Thank you, Jane, for your purchase, (waving!) it was SO nice to meet you and I hope to see you again! :)
* How blessed am I to live so close to one of only two stores in Texas?
** Vellum adhesive! Goes on clear so you don't see, it sounds like magic to me! Never seen it before, will be sure to let you know how i like it (I do have vellum designs in the book by the way!) :)
