It's officially a good day

It's a good day when your first book ever, the one you spent a year of your life working on and 20 years of your life getting ready to work on becomes number one on Amazon, in both beadwork and jewelry categories. There are many people who made it possible, a big thank you to all my supporters. As it makes it's way out in the world I look forward to seeing what you all do with the designs. Please do send me a photo. I'll be starting a gallery of book inspired beadwork on the website.

I posted the first comment and left to run some errands. When I returned a box was waiting by my door. I couldn't believe it was my copy of your book!! It's absolutely beautiful, Marcia! I've only had a chance to glance through it, but I know already it's a favorite and I'll recommend it to friends who bead. Thank you for such a wonderful addition to the beading library!
