Excuse me please , but may I toot my own horn for just a minute?

Well would you look at that! So that's what my name looks like in print , lol. . .

I want to thank Cindy , Sherre and Stephanie so much for inviting me to be a part of this book! These women have put a lot of time and effort into this over the last year , and are finally seeing their efforts come to fruition in the next month - a huge Congratulations to YOU , ladies!
This was an unexpected and wonderful opportunity for me , and I'm looking forward to seeing all the designs contributed by all of the talented women involved. None of us have seen the pieces any of the others submitted - it will be so much fun to snoop around when I receive my copy , lol!

If all goes well it should be available July 1st , and will be filled with lots of inspiration for those of us who enjoy creating jewelry. And not just inspiration - the authors have included basic lessons on the mechanics of creating a piece , along with specific directions for each design and a supply list that will include the vendor's when possible. That ought to make life a little easier , don't you think? Trust me when I say this - it will , lol.

I hope you enjoy the book and I'm going to end with two little words I've never said (to you) out loud before:

I'M PUBLISHED!

You better toot that horn Girl!!! That is awesome and so exciting!!!! I'm so proud of you sweetie! Thank you for asking about the Boy. He is still struggling and needing 4 or 5 treatments a week. He gets his allergy testing next week so maybe that will give us some clues. He is still the cutest little bug ever though!! Love, Jamie
