Jennifer Paganelli and Happy Home

I begin this post with the highly biased disclaimer that I am a huge Jennifer Paganelli fan. I love her bold, cheerful color palette, her sense of style, and her lovely real-life personality. I had the chance to meet her at Market in Salt Lake City last year and she was so fun and so genuine. 
So when I was given the chance to review her latest book Happy Home I jumped at the opportunity.  I have a copy of Jennifer's book Girl's World and Happy Home definitely lives up to the precedent set there.  The book contains 21 sewing and craft projects, this time focused on home decor and celebrations, including pillows, bedding, bags, and party decor.  The book comes with full-size patterns in a handy pocket. I personally think the book is worth buying for the inspirational photography alone - the vibrant colors and gorgeous textiles will inspire you to create beautiful things to freshen up your own home.
If you want to see Jennifer's personality for yourself, as well as the creative process as she creates the designs for her fabric collections (not to mention a glimpse of her huge collection of vintage textiles), you will love this short video.
I'm also happy to be able to share a copy of Happy Home with one of you readers! Just leave a comment at the end of this post. One per person, please. Make sure to leave a way that I can contact you if you win.  Giveaway closes Sunday, September 16 at midnight MST. Giveaway CLOSED.

Winner:

WOO HOO....would LOVE to win this book!!!!
