Sneak Peek at Creativity at Work

by habituallychic

08 . 23 . 12
On Monday, I received an exciting email alerting me that a few advance copies of my book Creativity at Work arrived at powerHouse Books.  I still can’t believe my own book is now sitting on my coffee table!  It will be released on October 30, 2012 and you can pre-order it now on Amazon.com and BN.com. Until then, here’s a little sneak peek at a few pages.  Hope you like it!
