Shipping updates!

There is a new entry on the Shipping Updates page on this blog- see the link, up there in the black banner? You can check that page anytime to see what’s what.

These past few weeks have been a whirl, with the Tucson Gem Shows in full force. I’ve got some neat new work here in the studio for photography, and (great news for these pieces) I’m still in layout on Volume II.  It’s getting really exciting now. I’ll keep you posted on my progress to press here on the Book Blog, and of course I’ll be showing you sneak peeks of the layouts and the patterns for the upcoming Pattern Library.

Things are going to get really crazy soon- I expect that when the Pattern Library opens for free, our community is going to explode with new beaders. It’s going to be wonderful.

Calendars are here

    When the pattern library goes live, this community will EXPLODE (even more than it already has) – I love the open source concept!

    In the spirit of urbex (urban exploration), I’ve been telling my friends that I’ve been heavily entrenched in “gebex” (geometric beaded explorations) since I stumbled across the CGBI blog last year. What an awesome inspirational ride it’s been…and it’s only just beginning…

    Hi, I’ve tried to open the pattern library, but I deleted the password from a previous email that was sent to me. Can you email me the password again. Thanks, Janet

      Hi! The Pattern Library isn’t open yet- check the Sneak Peek at Volume II page- it’s loaded with patterns and doesn’t need a password. : )
