It's a Bead Chic Sneaky Peek!

Pssst...guess what?
You can see inside of my new book! YAY!
Hey Howdy Hey Boys and Girls

Thank you to everyone who left such nice comments on my book post yesterday. I think one of the hardest things in life is learning to embrace and to celebrate our own success. Let's face facts, it's uncomfortable to toot our horns and to make a big splash in the pool and it can make other people who are insecure or unhappy feel threatened when we do. Ultimately, that's their problem. When we embrace our own joy, we are able to give it more freely to others. We all deserve as much bliss and as much success as we can imagine...and then some. When we create success, we are showing others that it's possible. Then we have to remember not just to celebrate our triumphs, but to celebrate the triumphs of those around us. It is imperative that we pay it forward. So thank each of you for allowing me the space to embrace my joy and for celebrating it with me, I had a lot of tough years and struggles along the way and it took me a long time to learn to love myself and feel worthy of love and success. This career began precisely when that happened. It feels really good to grow up.

And on that note, I have some exciting news! If you go to Amazon, you'll be able to Look Inside of my new book Bead Chic! I haven't even seen it in full color until today! I'm so excited, I just can't hide it and I'm not gonna apologize for it either! I really hope you're going to be excited too. The design team at FW did an amazing job on this book. There are 30 fashion forward base projects with variations including stunning variation projects from some of the biggest names in the jewelry making world. This is a book for folks who have the basic techniques down, but want to learn how to think like a designer. This is about learning how to take an idea and make it your own and that is the crux of my entire crafty message. Everyone has something to say and I want to inspire you to say it. Out loud! In technicolor! Without shame!

xoxo,
Madge

I think you hit it right on the head with your explanation of tooting your own horn. I'm not a big fish in my pond, but I totally relate and agree with everything you said. I'm really intrigued by your book idea and am running off to amazon now to take a peak! Erin
