Ana White - The Handbuilt Home Book Announcement

Okay, so by now you know how excited I get when I hear of a fellow blogger succeeding beyond their computer and reaching further to achieve their goals, right? Well... that being said, I'm thrilled to be finally sharing with all of you, my cute friend Ana White's new how-to book called, The Handbuilt Home!

I'm sure you're all familiar with Ana's wildly popular blog, Ana-White.com, where she shares helpful tips, tricks and plans, on how to build amazing top-of-the-line furniture, for only about a tenth of what it costs retail. (If not, then I hate to say it, but you're totally missing out).

Last year Ana and I spoke on a panel at SNAP together, along with Emily and Kate. It was so fun getting to know her, how her blog came to be, and what she was hoping to achieve in the future. She's totally gorgeous inside and out, an inspiration and talented to boot!

So the reason I'm REALLY excited, is because Ana is going to be in my own backyard next week! Her awesome book tour is bringing her to good ol' Salt Lake City!!! So, if you're local and want to get your own copy of The Handbuilt Home signed by Miss Ana White herself, then you've gotta be there!

Monday October 15th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
The Home Depot
3398 S. Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT

Don't be sad if you can't make it, because Ana has some other great stops on her book tour as well.

And if you're still not able to get to a location to meet her in person, then at least snatch-up her Handbuilt Home book ASAP, from Amazon, while it's still on sale.

I honestly couldn't be happier for my friends when I see them doing what they love the most, and being crazy-successful at it. Congratulations Ana!!!


  1. I heart Ana! So excited for her book!

  2. Got her book in the mail yesterday. :) Just wished she was coming close enough to go to a signing.

  3. Shelley thank you so much for the shout out! I can't wait to see you again!! Ana

  4. Wahoo! Love her site. We are in final stages of building our house. I have looked at lots of furniture and hate spending an arm and a leg. So hubby has said that he would give building some a try! Hoping to get the farm house table and an entryway table soon! Just went and ordered the book.

  5. I bought the book last night! www.styleoyster.blogspot.com

  7. So great! We've used a couple of her plans at our home and they have turned out amazing!

  8. omgosh I *LOVE* Ana White - she's the lady responsible for me donning safety goggles and learning how to do mitre cuts!!! I got over my fear of big powertools after watching her and drooling over all the plans she offers on her site - the "iWANT" made me get over my "iFEAR!" ;) Thanks for sharing it Shelly - she's coming to Houston so I'll be there :) P.S. how's the kitchen coming? ;)

  9. This book is definitely on my "I WANT THIS" list! =]
