the art girls guide to paris
I have been to Paris 3 times so far in my life, but I have never been with my friend Carmi.

When she goes to Paris she sees it in an entirely new way. Undiscovered jewelry stores, antique markets and little treasures that I never in a million years would have found on my own.

Well now you can have Carmi's guide to Paris and take her along with you on your next trip!

She self published a book on Blurb called The Art Girls Guide to Paris. If you are into art or anything arty you will want to check this book out!


A description of the book in Carmi's words:

"This is the guide book to Paris I wish someone had written for me ten years ago when I first started going to Paris. I have managed to learn more and more about Paris each time I visit. Like any grand city, it could take a life time. For those of you who have followed my travels to Paris on my blog I hope you will be happy to hear that I have pulled all my research and tips into this guidebook!

This book began as a quick email. The email turned into a memo. Then the memo turned into a blog series. All because ten to twelve times a year I get a message which always begins with "Hi Carmi, I know you go to Paris every year, do you have any recommendations for us?"

I think of going to Paris as a workshop. It is my opportunity to see new colours, new embellishments, new designs. This is what inspires me.

Friends and strangers write to me after my trips. They want to know where I stay, where I go, what I eat and most importantly where do I get all the great things I show off on my blog? I hope this book answers many of those questions!

I start this guide with an example of my typical eight day schedule, followed by a lot more detail of the places I visit."

Beware though! I read it, loved it, put it down, looked at Paul and said "when can we go to Paris?"

Hi Claudine

Thanks for stopping by my blog from Club Little House. The giveaway closed some time ago but I was reluctant to post on CLH because it seems to have been overtaken by spam and strange commenters.

I was going to Paris this summer for a few days but we got too busy in Amsterdam. I have been promised a separate trip to Paris so am keeping my fingers crossed.

You have a lovely blog - I will be popping back in again/
 
For many years I have dreamed of going to Paris. I even have an Eiffel Tower photo taped on my monitor to remind me to find the time to go. The idea of you going every year and writing a guide book on your artistic journey is a complete fantasy to me. I need to get that book so that I am one step closer to making the Dream come true!
