Today's the day it goes live! I haven't actually heard it yet (since I'm really writing this post on Tuesday, set to launch Wednesday morning while I'm sound asleep) and I'm more than a little nervous and a lot excited. We had such a great time talking, and Mandi promised to edit out my horrendous flubs. Yeah for editing! Thank you Mandi!!!
While we were setting up the interview, one of us commented 'wouldn't it be fun to do a Freeform Peyote Challenge and Blog Hop'. That's something I've drempt of doing for ages now, but never quite felt like it was the right time. But now the time has come!
Choose Your Own Adventure - Freeform Peyote Challenge and Blog HopSignups: January 16-31st, 2013
Blog Hop & Reveal: February 23, 2013
Email Mandi or myself including your name, email address and blog URL. Or leave a comment with your email address on this post, telling me you'd like to join in. If you don't have a blog but would like to participate, let me know - as long as you can email me photos and text, I'll make sure you're included in the hop.
Mandi and I will compile a list of participants to include in our posts for the reveal date, and also keep you informed of any changes or special happenings.
Everyone is invited to join in, whatever your familiarity or skill level with freeform peyote. The goal here is to challenge yourself and choose your own adventure.
On the reveal day, post a photo (or photos) of what you made and include a paragraph or two about your piece. If this is your first time working with freeform peyote, tell us about your experience.
Planning for this challenge, I started a new group on Facebook: Freeform Peyote Beading that is already turning into a wonderful source of inspiration. To join, you'll need to send me a request through Facebook and I'll happily add you in.
And I've launched a new Freeform Peyote Beading Facebook Page where all you have to do is hit 'Like' and it's added to your Newsfeed stream.
I'll also post a series of links to additional resources later this month.
What's a party without party favors? Leave a comment on Mandi's blog telling us what excites (or frightens) you most about freeform peyote for a chance to win a copy of my book on freeform peyote.
If you already own a copy of my book, share what you like most about it and if your name is drawn, I'll send you something else of equivalent value, likely a bead soup for freeform peyote.
