Hi Everyone!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever else you celebrate :) We had a nice but busy time of it with 5 different celebrations to go to.

I have a few things to share with you ~

First and foremost...I have finished the majority of writing on the book!!! I got on a roll last week and ended up finishing chapters 8-10! Now, the only writing I have left is the gallery information (which will be easy) and the appendix (easy but VERY time consuming - I have to write up supply lists for EVERY photo in the book - which at this time is several hundred pics!) I am working on examples for chapters 5-10 now so if I miss a day or so you'll know why...I have to make the examples for all of those pics.

a few other tid-bits of news....
I have a card in the newest issue of Crafts & Things!
It's a valentines card called "The Kiss" :)


I am going to be written up in our local paper!!
The guy e-mailed me on Christmas Eve.
He wants to set up a time to talk to me and get some pics :)
How cool is that...pretty wild I must say.

So, that's what's been up with me...what's up with you all?


  1. Congrats on all the exciting news!

  2. Roni! You REALLY are a STAR, now! How exciting! I'm glad I got your signature on a card before I have to pay big money for it...
    I've been planning on sending you something~sick kids, then sick parents, then the Holidays took over and I have been naughty~ not a single card has been mailed... Happy New Year Cards will have to do. Just know I have been thinking of you.

  3. Thanks so much Guys!!

    LOL...Erin no worries ~ I know what it's like. My Christmas cards I think will be turned into St. Patrick's Day Cards by the time everything is wrapped up with the book!

  4. Congrats to you for getting a load of work done on the book, for the card in the mag., and now you're gonna make the paper! WTG! I'm so glad I stumbled onto your blog several months ago.

  5. So happy for you, Roni! Keep up the good work on the book and you DESERVE the recognition. Fun!

    And, btw, I will be looking for that article, k? Post it here?

    (((( hugs ))))

  6. Congratulations Roni! It couldn't happen to a nicer person!

  7. Roni - I have not been keeping up with your post - I am excited to hear you are writing a book - I am assuming it is craft and technique related - You mentioned step by step - please tell me it is really step by step .... I mean dimensions and everything? I need a lot of guidance, I get so frustrated with these step by steps that say fold paper to make card, add another paper, stamp add .... I need lots of hand holding!
    this should be fun - I will have to keep up with your blog to get more details!
    and good luck!

  8. im so excited for you. you deserve all the glory !!!hope it will be distributed in the philippines too!!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
