{Giveaway} Amy Atlas’ Sweet Designs

I am sure you all have heard the news! Sweet Designs, by Amy Atlas finally hit bookstores yesterday! And guess what, it’s #1 on Amazon under the Crafts, Hobbies and Home and has spent 44 days in the top 100 and it JUST came out. Go Amy!  Also exciting?!  We’re giving away a SIGNED COPY.  Today.  Here.

If you aren’t familiar with the lovely Amy Atlas, she is the well known party planner extraordinaire {we are so happy she left her day job as a lawyer!} and shows readers how to create fabulous sweet tables for not just adults but kids too! She combines easy DIY craft ideas, store bought treats and easy recipes to make the perfect desert table for any gathering. She is just brilliant and a one-of-kind sweets stylist.
When I received the gallery copy a few months back, I was immediately in love with every page. Since I received my final copy a few days ago from her publisher, I’ve already flipped through it 15 times and it has a permanent spot on my coffee table. Sweet Designs is one gorgeous book and oh-my-word, you must buy it now. From the mouth watering recipes to my serious love for Chapter 1…ah, Forever Chanel {you had us at Diamonds & Pearls} and Candy Couture. Oh, and let’s not forget the crafts! My mind is still lingering over the Pleated Pedestal Skirts that are just, to.die.for. Just take my word – you will be in love with Sweet Designs and the jam packed inspiration it holds.
Since 2008, her hundreds of thousands of fans and readers have flocked to her award-wining blog, Sweet Designs. We are just ecstatic she put her ideas into a book and shared it with the world. Lucky for you, we am giving away a signed copy of Sweet Designs to one lucky reader to celebrate this beautiful book!


To enter, please leave a comment here about sweets!  What you love, what you want to learn from the book, what you love about Amy….we are looking for sweet comments to celebrate the launch.  Only one entry per reader, please.  Giveaway starts today, Wednesday, April 25th and goes thru Sunday, April 29th at midnight CST.  Giveaway winner will be announced on Monday.  Good luck and thanks to Amy and her team for giving our readers this opportunity!

    I love just about everything about sweets except the extra pounds. On the bright side they make me exercise more and that actually feels really good.

    I love that Amy has made a complete 180 degree turn from sour lawyer (although she was probably never sour) to sweet guru.

    Thanks for offering up such a delicious book!
