  1. It all looks great, Carolee.

    Hey, could you add links to each of the bloggers?

    Thanks!

    I'll post all of this as a preview, too, as well as on October 3rd.

    It also just occurred to me that I will miss your book launch - I am SO DISAPPOINTED! I leave that very morning for Amman, Jordan! So I'm going to miss the jewelry, the music, your talk - darn. :-(

  11. Thanks for all of the sweet comments about the prizes.
    I went to a home jewelry show and met four women who make hand-crafted pieces. All I was really looking for was a forget-me-not bracelet, but they got inspired when I told them about my book and made all these amazing pieces. We're trading books for jewelry and other artwork.
