Happy Vantastic day!!

Happy Vantastic day!!

Our baby is finally here and we are thrilled!

Our hopes are that she goes out into the big wide world and is loved and enjoyed and inspires others to take adventures of their own.

What a journey it's been for us since we left home just over two years ago.

Talking about it so much over the past week has inspired us to start thinking about another trip. This time up the East coast of Australia. Maybe in a renovated Airstream, does anyone have one for us?? We'll keep you posted on that anyway.

In the meantime it is my great pleasure to announce the two giveaway winners.

Knitgirl66 - Your book looks so beautiful - I love how your family feels a part of the creation of the your book. Is there a sealed section with a centrefold of Farmer Bren? ;)

Cityhippyfarmgirl - Oh Kate I love, love, love your book and I've only just seen the photos you've shown us on your post. Are you beside yourself, squealing happy, clapping, jump up and down excited? Jeez, I would be...it looks awesome!!!

Please email me your postal details girls and we'll get you your books ASAP.

And Karen with the husband Marty, could you please email me too.

As the great blogging cliche goes, and it's totally true, I so wish I could give every single one of you a copy. I could never have done this without you.

As of today you can now buy my book in all good book shops around Australia, other countries soon, and online here.

If you'd like another chance at winning my book, head over to instagram and snap a pic of my book somewhere, anywhere (in a shop, in a tree, on your shelf, on your bed side table...) and tag it #vantastic. We'll be choosing a winner next Thursday. And if you already have a copy, why not win one for your bestie, your nana, your favourite shop keeper, your postie or your aunt. Yay!

Ok, I'm off now to make celebratory pancakes for dinner. It's a birthday after all.

Big love and kisses to you all and have a Vantastic day!

  3. Congratulations Kate and family, so exciting! My local bookshop had it in stock yesterday and it has my name on it to pick up tomorrow. I have already planned to pick it up before I have a coffee...so I can enjoy it over my Friday 'town' coffee ritual.

    Kate, I had previously ordered through Explore but they told me yesterday it would be a couple of weeks for delivery. I couldn't wait that long! Not sure if other people have been told the same. x

  20. I'm dreaming of my own vantastic adventure and I tried to purchase a copy from your link (both a preorder a month ago and now a copy). The supplier said their site is not able to fill orders. Any other links to well stocked sites you could provide or retailers in WA? Thanks heaps, Faye (morganfaye@gmail.com)

  21. I preordered your book and hooray it arrived an few weeks earlier than expected, Yipee!!! It is beautiful and inspiring .... Lets just say that the seeds have been sown, I can now do caravan speak and plan to buy one to paint and then travel around Europe with my family before they all fly the nest. It is such a relief to see a caravan decorated so beautifully and looking so homely, I was always put off caravans by the precious nature by which the owners treat them, not me at all, but yours.... Wow!! Thank you for writing such an inspiring and beautiful book, it arrived in my life just in time x

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
