Remember when I announced back in October I was writing a beading book?
Well it's time to announce its topic.
You've got it -- the Bead Soup Blog Party.
Kalmbach Publishing, the awesome folks who put out Bead & Button magazine and the enormous Bead & Button Show (are you going to the show this year? I'm going!) approached me and we started talking about the Bead Soup Blog Party and, well -- the book will be coming out around October 2012.
I know that seems like a looong time off, but the publishing world works on a different time schedule than other industries. It takes a lot of time to write a book, photograph and lay it out, market it up to a year in advance, promote it -- I get tired just writing that!
|Bead Soup I received from Libby Leuchtman for my very first Bead Soup Blog Party.|
I couldn't be happier to have you all along with me. The book will definitely have a link to this page, which will hotlink to all the Party lists -- that means your blog will be seen when people click the link!
I'm thrilled to finally be able to share this with you. It's going to be a crazy year filling 96 pages with tutorials and commentary, but I'm excited ... I think it's FINALLY started to sink in!
Thanks so much for following my blog, for making comments on it, for participating in the Bead Soup Blog Parties, and for being such fabulous jewelry designers. I couldn't do this without you.
