That HUGE sigh…

Mar 15, 2011

of relief you just heard came from me. I just com­plet­ed my sec­ond book dead­line and let me just say, it was a humdinger, but I have 45 projects com­plet­ed. I’m so glad this one is behind me and every­thing has either been emailed or shipped. I leave for Cincin­nati in a few weeks to pho­to­graph all the step by step pho­tos for each fea­tured tech­nique. It will be a week of pho­tograph­ing dur­ing the day and writ­ing at night but I can final­ly start to see the book com­ing togeth­er and can­not wait for it to hit the shelves. I do believe you all are going to love this book. I’m already in love with it.

So after a week­end of writ­ing for 20 hours start­ing Fri­day evening and end­ing Sat­ur­day then pack­ing all the sup­plies and tools need­ed to recre­ate each tech­nique all day Sun­day and pack­ing all the projects that go with these tech­niques yes­ter­day… well yes­ter­day, the mail­man rang the door bell and hand­ed me a pack­age that had this gor­geous col­lar neck­lace inside. I could not believe my eyes.

You all might remem­ber me going on and on about this piece that Con­nie had dis­played in the Maya Road booth this past CHA‑W. It took every ounce of con­trol I had not to have her beau­ti­ful neck­lace end up in my suit­case. Well, no more plot­ting now as I have my very own. And I love how this neck­lace came to be. Con­nie told me after teach­ing an advent class this past hol­i­day sea­son she had all these lit­tle bits and pieces left over and had to make some­thing with them. Talk about mak­ing great use of extra baubles. So next win­ter all these super cute lit­tle bits and pieces and altered Maya Road prod­ucts will reside beau­ti­ful­ly around my neck and I will be remind­ed of Con­nie and her incred­i­ble kind­ness.

Thank you so much Con­nie. Your neck­lace will be cher­ished for­ev­er and envied by all.
