You can have a peek inside my book now on Amazon too.  Thank you all for generous reviews!! I looked the other day and was incredibly moved.

I also want to celebrate that it was #1 in Art & Photography books!!! It keeps fluctuating, but I definitely took a screen shot of that:-)

This has been a wild ride so far! I’m so grateful for the people in my life: from the guy at the print shop below…

To all of you who ordered my book and wrote sweet reviews already!

I’ve been including this limited edition “Show The World Your Magic” print along with the books if you purchase them directly from me.

Here’s my friend Brené Brown holding the sign in her inspiration interview with me… head over to her blog for a chance to win one of my books!
