Buffalo Garden DIY garden art Holiday Video

The Perfect Gift

Garden expert Sally Cunningham and I made a little video to promote our book.

My co-author, Sally Cunningham, and created this video in my living room! This is one of two (or maybe even three) videos we’ll produce to promote our book, Buffalo Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs.

Photo styling by me. Sally’s hair and makeup by her! She didn’t take me up on doing her hair in make-up. Probably a wise choice.

Buy the book right here on the blog! Even that snazzy poster of heart-shaped leaves I designed in the background is available for sale! Depending on what device you’re reading this on, there’s an option to purchase them someplace!

Sales were great as we launched the book in the spring – and were great through the summer. Now is the push for the holidays. You can find out more about the book at BuffaloStyleGardens.com.
