Little triumph

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!
