June Giveaway

Greetings All,
As many of you know, I sell my beadwork online and I have highs and lows and I'm always looking for a way to improve my art and my sales.
Recently, a dear friend in Connecticut sent me "The Handmade Marketplace" by Kari Chapin (also illustrated by Emily Martin of the Black Apple!). I have gleaned wonderful tips and tricks from this book and wanted to share it, so I hustled down and bought another copy to give away on this blog. Just leave a comment on any of the posts for the month of June. At the beginning of July, I'll do a random draw and send the book to the lucky winner.
The subtitle for this most helpful book is "How to sell your crafts locally, globally and online". I have already made some changes and implemented some new ideas and I'm happy with the results.

Kari will be appearing at Land Gallery in Portland, Oregon on June 18th. Hope all of you locals can stop by. For more info, click here.

Speaking of Global - I have made more friends, in more parts of the world, than I can count since I started this blog. I'm especially glad of all of my English blogger friends since I love England and wish I lived there. Reading their blogs gives me a sense of belonging to that wonderful world on the other side of the planet.


  1. As one of your English blogging friends I confess I too love the manner in which writing a blog has opened up the world to me also. Long may these friendships continue!

    Kate :-)

  2. I'd love to read this book! :D

    Hello from the tiny Island of Malta in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea :)

  3. hey, jana just sent me the link to your the beaded jewelry your doing.

  4. This book looks really interesting. I have not ventured to sell my work online yet, just to friends and friends of friends.

    When I first visited your blog I was struck by the vivid green, so different than our desert colors of Phoenix!



Please weave a web of words for all to see.
