This project has a fun history. AJ made it to auction off on Brenda Novak’s Online Auction for Diabetes Research a few years back and it was won by NYTimes Bestselling Author Allison Brennan. Unfortunately, Allison didn’t have the right display place for it, so she’s “loaned” it back to AJ until she has a place (AJ is selfishly hoping she doesn’t…it’s one of her favorites). Inspired by her love of books and writers’ obsession with coffee, STARBOOKS is the only two story project she’s finished so far…she made the espresso/coffee machine out of old plastic containers and the pastries are made out of clay. The cups are actually glue caps and the books lining the shelves are some of AJ’s favorites.
