Chicago readers with champagne and books at Jayson Home!

First of all I have to say, I love my husband…but last night I almost murdered him.

Over the weekend I upgraded to the iPhone 6 since my 5’s battery would last about an hour before it would die. Andrew insisted he backed up my phone (and all it’s photos) on my computer before we brought it in to sell- and have the hard drive wiped. I believed him. (Cue foreboding Jaws music…)

Book Party RSVP!

My own stack of books arrived this afternoon and party invites are OUT, so now I can officially invite you, dear readers, to join me in celebrating the launch of the book- FINALLY! These pretty invitation designed by Jessica Sutton Graphic Design are just the icing on the cake, don’t ya think?

Please RSVP HERE to get on the list for this fun night! I can’t wait to meet many of you and finally be able to get this baby out to the public!

The invitation is based on elements from the cover, which was such an important part of this book designing process. I wanted the cover of my book to be a combination of all my favorite things for interiors- black & white, gold, stripes, Schumacher’s Hollyhock Pyne print, leopard… the list goes on and on. I still am madly in love with the cover (front, side and back) and found some items for the home that coordinate perfectly with the book!
