I have so much to catch all of you up on!! I want to tell you all about the 3 Day (which was in all honesty, one of the most amazing experiences of my life!), some spiffy new packaging for Athena's Armoury, as well as the additional of herbal goodness to the shop. But all of that will have to wait.
Some of you maillers & jewelry makers may have heard of a new book that has been released. It's called CHAINED and it's by Rebeca Mojica of Blue Buddha Boutique fame. (You may remember that one of my major fundraising campaigns for the 3 Day was my Pink Warrior line of chain maille. Rebeca is the extremely generous woman that donated the 1,000's of pink jump rings so that all proceeds of Pink Warrior sales could go straight to my fundraising.) I received my autographed copy of CHAINED recently and it's gorgeous!! There are projects in there for beginners as well as experienced maillers and Rebeca has got a talent for making it easily accessible to all.
Rebeca will be taking CHAINED on the road, if you're lucky enough to be in one of the areas she's visiting. For the rest of us, she'll be doing a few virtual book tour stops and Athena's Armoury is honored to host one of them! Make a date to join us for Rebeca's virtual book tour right here on Friday, December 17. Rebeca will be talking to us about her success as an entrepreneur and philanthropist and will take a few of your questions as well. If you're interested in asking a question during the Audience Q&A portion of the event, just leave it in the comments below by Tuesday, December 14. I can't guarantee that we'll get to all questions due to time limitations, but we'll do the best we can.
Be sure to follow CHAINED on Facebook & twitter to get all of the latest updates and join the notification list to find out about several contests available to members only.
I'm really looking forward to spending some time chatting with Rebeca and hope you join us!!
