  5. Tisha says:

    Boo, the craft event is already sold out! Will there be books there to purchase, or should I get one ahead of time? I didn’t see that info on the RSVP page.

  6. Maker says:

    Is there a waiting list that I can get on for the crafting event??? I would make an amazing crafting sub.

      we’re working on adding one :)


  7. Sheila says:

    So excited that you are coming to my town! I hope it is a great time for you & Co. If there was a wait list for the crafting event – I would definitely want to be on it! But I will attend & get your book. I follow you on Twitter.
