At the end of last year, many of you let me know that my blog was featured in the Times Online "50 of the world's best design blogs". It was a great surprise, and I want to thank you all for letting me know about it, as well as to Times Online for including me. For the full list, check out sfgirlbybay's post about it right here.
Also, I was super happy to discover that my blog was included in the list of design blog favorite nominations for apartment therapy's The Homies 2009 award. Since I don't know much about these things, I really appreciate you guys thinking about me and including me in your votes. Your support and encouragement is wonderful, and I know this (blog)house is buzzing with activity because of you. Thank you mes amis.
In other news, I was thinking, since I'm in Sydney only for a little while longer, is there anyone here interested in having a copy of paris: made by hand signed? (blog)house reader natalie and I had discussed the idea in an email briefly some time ago, and then again recently. So I thought I'd just put the idea out now to you guys, and if there was a healthy handful or so then I could look into it further. It wouldn't be until the beginning of February, and I was thinking at a nice cozy bookstore, say something like gertrude & alice on oxford st, or the likes. I don't even know if they sell my book, but if they did, perhaps they'd like to host a signing.
What do you think?
If there is enough interest in a signing, I'd need help from someone to organise it as I'm smack bang in the middle of writing my next book. Another idea is that if anyone owns a store in Sydney selling the book and would like to host a signing, then let me know.
I would love to have the chance to meet some of you while I'm here. An impromptu booksigning seems feasible and a great way to see you, non? Let me know your thoughts.
