Thanks Debbie - I'll remember to put the release date on here as soon as I have it...at the moment it's 'sometime in December...hopefully before Xmas'! It's on pre-order though if you want to get in early!

Thank you everyone for all the lovely comments Smile I'm sorry it's taken so long, but finally this book has just been published http://beadflowers.co.uk/beads/books/bead-flowers-and-wedding-bouquets-e-book/ ...for everyone on here who wanted to know when it came out! It's available for download if you want to save on shipping as well and (although I shouldn't say it myself...!) the editor has done an amazing job, so it's just so brilliantly user-friendly. I think it's great to be able to learn this craft from videos, so I hope you'll all agree. Thank so much for the support, all you lovely people Smile

hi katie, i forgot to tell you, with your book i am going to make my own wedding bouqet too, since you put that up it was clear thats just what i want, got to thank you very much for your inspiration!  when i talked about your book and and the plan for the wedding bouqet with my friends they all offered me to help, so i won't need like half a year for making a bouquet :), now there will be a hen party end of the year where we all will make flowers for my the big day, its just awsome, i am so happy i can't describe the luck about good friends, a special beaded bouqet and so much fun. At the wedding i will throw then not the whole bouqet, but a lot single flowers and keep some for the memory of it as they will stay pretty for good :). Wilted Flower

Got your email today, will write back tomorrow.

Thank you Aunty Akoya! That sounds like the most wonderful idea to have a hen party and have all your friends make flowers for the special day! That will be amazing. You'll have to post some photos of your bouquet as well - would really love to see it Smile

 

I also wanted to pass on a message from my publisher. She is looking for anyone who has a beading blog to write a review of the book - she would send out a free copy in return for a review on your blog or website...sounds too good to miss I think! Anyway, if anyone is interested, please drop her (Vivienne) an email at https://www.vivebooks.com/contact/. Thanks!

Wow...what can anyone say??? These look so real!!! I can't imagine the amount of work you must put into it...but the results is breath taking. Any bride should have a bouquet like this. It will last forever.

These are gorgeous! I had no idea this was even a thing -- I bought the book right away. Guess I've got a new obsession now. ;)
