If you had fun making Joshua's free projects, you will enjoy Joshua’s Book.
Hangin’ Around
with Noah is a beautiful, full color instructional book, written and published when Joshua was 12 years old. These are a limited edition- so when they are sold out, there will not be a second printing. Those of you who have watched Joshua grow from a 10 year old crafter into a 16 year old professional artist, won't want to miss out on his first book!
