...BOOK! I know, you probably thought I was going to say baby but I've spent over a year and a half growing this book baby!


Dearest Blog Readers,

HOLY CRAP GUYS, I WROTE A BOOK! This is the biggest announcement of my life because this has been the most intense and personal project I have ever worked on... yes, I'm talking about the first ever Mr. Kate book!!!! It is with immense pride and a tear in my eye that I bring you, A Hot Glue Gun Mess: Funny Stories, Pretty DIY Projects by Mr. Kate - now available for pre-order plus a FREE GIFT*!

We've been working tirelessly on this book for the past year and a half and I've poured my heart into it. It's a coming-of-age memoir meets a DIY book! If you watch the video above, I show you that not only will you be getting over 50, full color, never-before-seen-on-the-blog DIY projects but you will also get 50 funny, crazy, weird, magical, inspiring and embarrassing stories from my life. I said to Joey the other day that after this book comes out, everyone will know my deepest and darkest secrets and he nodded and said, "Yup!"

"Creativity is the story of my life! In this colorful book of fifty hilarious stories and fifty beautiful DIY projects, I take you on a journey through the crazy turns in my world and show you how life can inspire art that anyone can do! See how my first period inspired gorgeous watercolor curtains, how my last minute court-room wedding sparked a no-sew tutu and my one-night stand with the world's most famous athlete led to a marquee-light project that brightened my home."

I literally put my everything into this book and I am the most excited I've ever been about anything for you all to read it. Please check out the web page we've made for the book to get more info and pre-order your copy of A Hot Glue Gun Mess!
