A Charming Exchange

At long last the cover of the book!
we got to see it last week for the first time!
as a special surprise just for me our amazing art director put a image of a tree oh the cover!
to pass your art to another artist and then have there spin put into is just what this book is about... sharing what you do the best with some one that has a different skill then you and then steeping back and allowing the process unfold.

Tonia our editor and Christine our photographer were so great! they made each day we filmed the books as pain free as they could... but there was a little bit of pain as some things just took longer then expected when your sleepy and jet lagged and some steep outs turned out to be a little more complex when you working with watchful eyes :)

I want to also congratulate my fellow cover girls from right to left:
Deryn, Catherine, Jess and Crystal!

I am still away from home, I am now in Chicago with my Friend Deborah enjoying her family and hanging out at her most amazing bead shop! we are also working on a blog for her and a etsy shop where she will sell bead kits!
