We are so excited about the publication of our new book Mod Podge Rocks! Want to know more about the book? Check out our previous post highlighting some of the many rave reviews it’s been receiving from the blogosphere.
One of the elements that people love so much about the book is the author, popular blogger and craft personality Amy Anderson. I took some time recently to ask Amy some questions about her experience with Mod Podge, blogging, and authoring the book. You can read her responses below. Be sure to check back here for more great Mod Podge Rocks! posts–including free projects and a huge giveaway–in coming weeks.
Q: How long have you been crafting with Mod Podge?
A: “About five years now. I got the crash course by my friends in the PLAID design studio, and I’ve been hooked ever since. My first project was a disaster, but that didn’t stop me. I was determined to master the glue that everyone seemed to love so much. Now that I’m addicted, I totally know why they do!”
Q: Out of all the Mod Podge products do you have a favorite? What is your favorite from the new line of products launched this month?
A: “I love the Hard Coat formula the best, because I love using Mod Podge on furniture. It’s so satisfying to re-do a large item and make it look new again. Wait a second – it’s a tie between that and Dimensional Magic. My favorite from the new line of products is the Glitter Dimensional Magic. I’m so excited to make awesome jewelry. I will pimp out the glitter Dimensional Magic, especially during holiday time!”
Q: What is your favorite project in the book?
A: “That is tough, but I really love the children’s artwork bracelet by Candie Cooper. Children’s artwork is so special and that bracelet is such a great gift.”
Q: Do you have any advice for other bloggers out there considering taking the blog to book leap?
A: “Be ready to work hard! Doing a book is time consuming AND creatively consuming. But the end is well worth it. You just have to anticipate that you will be putting everything you have into the book for awhile, but there will be a huge reward at the end!”
Q: It’s clear from the initial coverage of the book that you are very well connected and beloved in the blogging community. What can you say about the influence on blogging in your own life?
A: “My life has completely changed because of blogging, both personally and professionally. Some of my best friends are bloggers, and we met online. I’m also working as a blogger and freelance writer full time now. I NEVER thought this would be my life. After I got my MBA, I expected to be working at a desk for the rest of my life. I know that I am meant to be doing this, and I am happy. It’s a great feeling.”
