I'm about to get crafty, folks!

When I was younger, say late teens and early twenties, my sister in law and I started a small business called the Kat and the Kanary. We would decoupage just about anything we could get our hands on, and then set up shop at craft fairs around town.  The two of us have always been crafty and artistic, and she is one of the people who has most inspired me to be the DIY chica that I am today.

I am working on a new project.  Something totally different than anything I've ever done before, and it is very exciting. I'm writing another cookbook. Well, I guess that's not totally different than anything I've ever done before, but the book I am writing IS totally different than anything I've ever done before. 

I am writing a combination craft and cookbook. Namely vegan food gifts. It's tentative working title is Vegan Food Gifts: Spread the Vegan Love DIY-Style with 100 Inspired Recipes for Homemade Edible Gifts, Baked Goods, Preserves, and More. I finally get to put two of my favorite things together...crafts and delicious vegan goodies!

Of course, the wonderful and talented, Celine will be adorning the pages with her gorgeous photographs. And, I am really close to nailing down a really awesome vegan artist to do the illustrations, who I know you all will be as stoked about as I am.

I just wanted to tell y'all how much I appreciate your overwhemingly generous support of my and Celine's books over the years.  Without you guys, I'd still be self publishing my own books that I wrote on Powerpoint.  Ha!  So, yeah, thanks guys.  

Keep spreading the vegan love.
