Why? Well, it's my birthday.
More specifically my 52nd birthday.

Who knew it would be such great fun growing up!?

But that's not all I'm celebrating. I can now share with you that I will be writing a book for Lark. I will let you know minor details - such as when it will be released next year (sounds funny since only the introduction has been written far) - as I can. That big, goofy smile you see in the photo above? I've been sporting one just like it since I got the news a few days ago. If you are on Facebook, do yourself a favor and "like" the Lark Jewelry & Beading page. I am so proud to get to work with this quality publisher.

And to make this not just "all about me!": I'd like to continue the tradition of sharing my good fortune a little.
From now until the end of the month, I'm turning the 3 for 2 Pattern Program into a 4 for 2 Program for those who want to take advantage of it. Just be sure to let me know the two free patterns (of equal value or less) you want me to send along with your order. I have almost 100 patterns to choose from.
Be well and get going!
