Today is the official release date of Amanda Blake Soule's third book, The Rhythm of Family. It was lovingly created with her partner Steve and four children (now five!) chronicling their family's seasonal discoveries, whether it be in the kitchen or amidst the wide open spaces of their home in Maine. I know I'm not the only one in love with Amanda's gentle, thoughtful ways. She has inspired a new generation of families to open their eyes and heart to nature based learning and living... and pioneered an online community that spreads far and wide. Yes, Amanda is a very special woman, and I was honored (in the deepest sense of the word) when she invited me to contribute my Nature Stamps to this new book. I first experimented with pod printing exactly, I mean to the day, two years ago. I blogged about it here. And then experimented some more right here. By the time Amanda contacted me, I was deep in nature printing mode and she thought it would translate beautifully to the book she was working on. And here it is!
See those red hearts? They are the secret print of a walnut half. Living surrounded by black walnut trees, it was inevitable that we discover their magic centers. When I sent Amanda the printing samples for the book, I also gathered together a kit of pods and shells for the Soule children to explore some nature stamping on their own.

I would LOVE a copy of this book! It looks beautiful. I have her first book and I treasure it. We enjoy our evening rains here in the SW. It's monsoon season and we love watching the storms roll in. Big dark clouds in an endless blue sky. It's beautiful.Thanks!
