Five Hundred

At the end of October, I discovered that's how many copies of Freeform Peyote Beading have sold through Amazon!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe my excitement at discovering that I had indeed broken the five hundred mark on sales.  A happy dance was definitely in order.

Seems that it's definitely time for a celebration! I thought about breaking out the champagne, but that's kind of hard to share over the web.  My next thought was to do a give away on my blog (I love the anticipation of signing up for them on other people's blogs, even if I never win).  My husband disagreed, and said I should just share how excited I am.  But posting a u-tube video of me bouncing around the room seemed a bit much, so instead, I'm doing a give-away.

Since I'm celebrating my book, I thought I'd give away a goodie bag filled with beads - seed beads, accent beads and at least one focal as well as a button clasp - enough to make a freeform peyote bracelet.  I'll even throw in a copy of my book if you don't already have one.

So if you want a chance to win, just post a comment (and make sure I have a way to reach you).  And if you have a favorite color/colors, let me know that too.  For extra credit (and an extra chance to win) if you already have a copy of my book, tell me which is your favorite piece in the book and what you like best about it.  Or I'll even let you visit my project gallery and tell me your favorite there to get that extra chance. 

I'll draw a name on Wednesday the 16th.



  1. Congratulations on the sales!!! Wonderful.

  2. Congratulations on the sales! I looked in your project gallery, and at first glance thought my favorite was named "Leonard Jasper". Time to get the glasses updated!

  3. How exciting to have that many book sales! Congratulations!
    It was hard to choose a favorite in your gallery but like Bobbie above me, I have to say Leopard Jasper. Ocean Waves was a very close second, though!

  4. Congratulations. That's fabulous! Your book is on my Amazon wish list. Maybe Santa will bring it - though I won't complain a bit if I win it earlier. ;-)

  5. That is a fantastic achievement, congratulations :)
    This is a form of beading I have long admired and would love to try too.
    I love the Hunting Fae necklace ~ it is beautiful ~ very "other wordly".
    cheers ~ Lyn.
