“Fixer Upper” star Joanna Gaines has been fairly busy with her recent, creative side projects. Since wrapping up her hit HGTV show with husband Chip Gaines, Joanna has released two books: “Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave” and “Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering,” and worked with Target to sell their home design brand, “Hearth and Hand.”
In December, Joanna shared on social media that she was working on another exciting project with her children. Although few details were given, the image showed several drawings and a swatch of different colors.
“A while back, I felt like I wanted to take on a project that the kids could all be a part of, so we sat down and brainstormed what we could work on together,” Mrs. Gaines wrote. “After a few months, we’re in the home stretch and getting so excited to share it with you- more details soon!”
On Monday, January 14th, Joanna finally revealed details regarding the big project. She and her kids are releasing a children’s book titled, “We are the Gardeners.”
The story behind it is absolutely beautiful. According to Joanna, it “tell[s] the story of our journey in the garden - a story of trying and failing and trying again and never giving up” and is meant to inspire people to “get outside, get your hands dirty, and grow something great!”
The book is currently available for pre-order here. The official release date is March 26th, 2019.
Congratulations to Joanna and her children on this wonderful project! In breaking news, a famous faith leader tragically lost his daughter to cancer.
