Upcoming Book Reviews and Giveaways

In the midst of all this crap, I received two books to review and also to give away.  The first is New Dimensions in Bead and Wire Jewelry by the fabulously chic Margot Potter  This is a really fabulous book. I have only had a chance to do a quick glance through it but am planning to camp out in bed with a pot of tea and read it tomorrow.

The second book is by the wildly creative, Tracie Lampe called Upcycled Accessories.
This book is all about reusing all those plastic bags that aren't recyclable. Who knew old chip bags could be so cute?

Tracie will also be vending at the Detroit Maker Fair this weekend July 30/31st. Her booth is in the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn MI. She will be doing a fused plastic demo at 11am on July 31st  and will have books and other great upcycled things for sale.

I'll put up review posts about both of these crafty books with the giveaways on them this weekend, so keep your eye out for them.

Sorry to hear there is crap going on in your life. Hopefully that will change for you soon!

I have seen little whispers of Margot Potter's new wire book. It looks like an interesting one. Beads and wire make for an excellent marriage. I hope it is an inspiring read!
