One of the photos I styled way back when I still had a day job landed ON THE COVER of a book! Imagine my excitement when I was browsing through books in National Bookstore on Sunday night and saw this on the shelves:
I styled the photo on the upper right, with the ladder, pink stool, and robins egg blue wall. It originally appears on a DIY article I wrote about painting a room.
I had no idea about the book, so it was a pleasant surprise! As I paid for it, still pretty pumped up with excitement, I wanted to tell the cashier, "I painted that wall, and that's my pink Ikea stool!", but I didn't. I was able to collect myself and quietly pay for the item. Hehehe. It's my first cover okay? Allow me to gush about it here on my blog. I will try to be cooler next time, and try to act nonchalant. Lol.
Handy Hints and Instant Makeovers was launched today at Robinsons Galleria. (But I didn't get to attend the launch because I was off dealing with a mini crisis at the bank. Long story, don't ask). Anyway, the book is chock-full of fun tips and lovely visuals, and for only Php120, it's quite a steal. I am not getting royalties or anything like that, so this is not a plug. :) Just wanted to share my first ever cover!
