Springfield, MO Book Signing!

ABM-MAP-postcard-6inx6in-front-1000pxDon't forget this coming Saturday, September 20th, Elsie and I will be hosting our first hometown book signing! You can bring your own copy of Happy Handmade Home or you can purchase one at the event ($13). All proceeds from book sales will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Please come say hi, take a photo with us, eat some snacks, check out the Restore, and just have a good time. 

Also, in case any of you will be traveling to Springfield, we wanted to make sure and give you our favorite local recommendations. Josh designed this map of Springfield, highlighting many of our favorite spots. We love our hometown and know you will too. You can print this map, or we'll have copies available at the book signing.

  • Hi! I had preordered your book – which I devoured the first day I got it – but I didn’t get to download the 2 prints. I just went back to the link and they didn’t work. Can someone help? I had the perfect place for them and was bummed I couldn’t print it. Sorry to add this to the comments but didn’t see an email to contact you guys with. Congrats on the book!! I love it!

  • This makes me sad that I don’t live in Springfield anymore! You know…KC has a whole bunch of ReStore locations!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • i don’t know if you care, but since your “update” of your layout, your site doesn’t load properly on my computer. this is kinda a bummer since i used to visit your site at least a few times a week. now it is just frustrating. i guess i will have to stop stalking your blog unless you have some idea why this might be happening?
    I have a mac.
    it makes me sad i can’t view your whole site anymore.

  • Hi Teresa! We definitely do. If you don’t mind, send me an email at support AT redvelvetart DOT com so I can get some more info from you and we can troubleshoot that! ๐Ÿ™‚ -Jacki

  • I’m so bummed! I will be out town! Grrr. At least those are all my favorite places too. Must mean I have excellent taste! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hi Elsie and Emma, I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks now and yesterday your book arrived in the mail (I’m in Australia). I have just managed to sit down with it now and it’s gorgeous. Well done!

  • Oh man I wish I would have known about this sooner! I live in Kansas City and wont be able to make it ๐Ÿ™ You all should come to Kansas City for a signing!

  • Hi Elsie and Emma, I’ve preordered Your book, and I’ve got the link of the downloadable prints. I couldn’t download them right away, and I didn’t pay attention if there was any notice regarding the expiration of the link, so I wanted to download and print them now, but I wasn’t allowed…Is there any way to get them again? I loved them so much!

  • Hello Elsie & Emma, I am bummed that I spaced out today & didn’t remember this. ๐Ÿ™ I was looking forward to getting the book & having it signed. I am excited to get the book soon!
