Not long before I join noted glass artist Jill Yelland, fellow contributor to FFF+, in WA for the book tour. Am so looking forward to catching up with old friends from Women Chiefs of Enterprises (WCEI) but also speaking in Perth, Kalgoorlie, Margaret River and at a cocktail party at Studio Gallery in Yallingup. Can hardly wait! It's such a beautiful state!
The men's book is nearly there..I am so proud of this book and it's thumbs up to the naysayers who said men would never let you in to their 'inner sanctum'.
