Meaningful Beauty for Imperfectionists :: Thank You for Preordering

simple gifts

I am so thrilled at the army of imperfectionists who are ordering this book before it even comes out. Look what you have done…

interior design best seller

For the past 24 hours The Nesting Place has been the Number 1 best seller in Interior Design and it hasn’t even released yet. This has absolutely nothing to do with me. This is because a crowd of women truly believe that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

This is because we’ve decided that when it comes to our homes, perfect is NOT the goal.

This little #1 Best Seller thing will go away. For all I know it will be gone by the time I post this, but isn’t it fun to see the dent we are making?

And to thank you for preordering, and to ask you to preorder & order now, if you haven’t yet but know you are going to purchase the book, we have a few simple gifts of meaningful beauty for your home.

We finally have it in writing. The Imperfectionists Motto!

The lovely Lindsay, from Lindsay Letters whose work I have all over my house created this beautiful print for us. She  is the artist who did the lettering for the cover of the book.

The print goes right along with the message of the book and you can print it out at home as many times as you like. And it’s available in 5 different colors!

All you need to do to receive the free downloadable files to print off at home is order a book, if you already have, great! And yes, kindle & ebook orders count too, yippie!

Between now and May 3rd, email us at tell us you ordered and we’ll send you a link to the files.
