Do you remember when you were five and it was Christmas Eve, and it was all you could do to fall asleep before Santa came? Well, that pretty much sums up how I feel about Ana White coming to Houston. It’s a bit hectic as it’s the day after we close on our house (aka MOVE OUT!) but I’m going to bum a couch from a friend and head up to the Big City Saturday morning so I can meet my carpentry hero. I CANNOT WAIT!
So of course now I have to come up with a brilliant stash of stuff for her to sign. Not too much stuff, though, because I don’t want the mob behind me to get pissed for taking up so much time. I’m definitely bringing her book, and my favorite drill. But I also wanted a little something for Charlie, so I whipped up a cute and bright “Born to Build” printable. I’ll buy a nice mat and sweetly ask if she doesn’t mind signing it too. There may perhaps be an extra copy for her adorable little Grace. I think I’m also going to have to put a Texas goodie bag together. When my gradeschool friend came down for a visit, she brought me a thoughtful gift bag from Massachusetts. Of course I felt like a total ass to be empty handed, so now I will go nowhere without a goodie bag in hand if I’m meeting out-of-state friends! Now to figure out what to pack…
Anyway, if you would like your own Born to Build art print, I’ve got a few additional color options for you to download. Click on the color word to download the print.
If any of y’all will be there at the book signing, let me know! I’d love to meet you. And hooray for Ana White and her new book!
