If your a publisher or author and would like me to review, host a contest, do an interview, or to just help spread the word about your book, please email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
I love books! I would love to read and review your book! I also love blogging about books and sharing that love with others. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help spread the word about your book. I would be more than happy to accept review copies from publishers and authors. I would also be happy to participate in author interviews, blog tours, and host contests.
I accept ebooks that can be loaded onto kindle.
I will always give review books top priority. Therefore, I will read the book in a timely manner. I will try not to post the review until about a month prior to release.
I will review every book that I read. I will only accept books that I believe I would like to read. If I do not like the book, I will not give it a totally negative review. I can usually find something good about every book I read. I would rather say nothing than give a book a total negative review. Just because I don't like a book does not mean that someone else would. Even if I don't review the book, I can spotlight it on my blog by offering it in a contest, or just do a Spotlight post on the book.

Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin
A beautiful technique book dedicated to making artist trading cards. Artist trading cards, most often referred to as ATC's are little works of art that are usually only 2 1/2" X 3 1/2". They can be painted, sewn, stamped, embossed, fused, etc., really there is no limit to what can be incorporated into these tiny bits of art. This book covers most of the popular techniques. It will ell you what you need for each project, and take you step by step in the process, and it shows photographs of most of the steps. It covers a wide range of techniques, including, but not limited to the following: Paint on Paper Towels, Watercolor on Baby Wipes, Leafing Pen Resist, Stencils, Magazine Paper, Phone Book Paper, Transfers, Resin, Stitching, and Digital. There are many more techniques included that I have not listed here. If you have an interest in this style of art, you will not be disappointed with this book!
Welcome and thanks so much for visiting! As you can see, this blog is about all things happy and the things that I find happiness in doing. So, I will talk about cooking, crafts off all kinds, my dog Cooper, and different strategies for making life a little more Happy. I will also review books associated with Cooking (mostly baking), crafts that I love such as altered art, jewelry design, knitting, sewing, etc. I will also review books on Psychology subjects that will help make day to day life a little easier. Please come back soon and feel free to leave comments. I would love to hear from you!

However, occasionally, a book publisher or author may provide books to be reviewed for free.Every book reviewed here receives my honest opinion. It makes no difference if I purchased the book myself, or if it was provided for free. If it seems that most of the reviews here are positive, it is because I only purchase or accept books that I am truly interested in.
