Photos from my upcoming book, The Handmade Mama, a collection of healthy recipes, natural skin care products, and simple sewing projects for Mama's pregnancy and postpartum, and baby's first year.
Sometimes it feels like it's taken an eternity to put together my second book, but I'm pleased to report that the project is finally coming close to being finished. The bath and body projects and healthy cooking recipes have all been formulated, tested, and photographed - just leaving me the sewing projects and some writing to finish up. I'm thrilled to be working with Kimberly Davis again on the new book. Kimberly took amazing photos for my first book, The Natural Beauty Solution, and our first photo shoot for The Handmade Mama (Oh yes, I FINALLY named it!) went incredibly well.
Here are a few teaser shots from the first photo shoot. As you can see, the new book will be including more than just homemade skin care projects. The Handmade Mama will be a collection of natural skin care recipes, healthy food recipes, and simple sewing projects all designed to support mama during pregnancy and postpartum and baby during their first year. This is a topic that is so close to my heart that it became daunting at times to take it on, but I'm feeling really good about how it is coming together, and I can't wait to share it with you all.
The Handmade Mama is expected to come out mid-2017 with Spring House Press. For updates, book news, pre-sale info, and special offers and events, sign up for my book news mailing list!
