The Beading Yogini

First of all, I love the title of her blog, the Beading Yogini. Second, isn't this beaded micro-macrame totem owl piece simply marvelous???
Click on the link to her blog to see more pix of this beautiful, beautiful piece!

Etsy Swag

A few weeks back the local branch of Etsy aficionados (etsyRAIN) decided to hold a sale. I couldn't be part of the sale because I was moving house and all my stuff was between hither and thither, but I wanted to contribute in some way so I made 50 micro-macrame owls for their swag bags. Swag bags are usually given out to the first 50 or so customers at an event and I am hoping my owlies went to good homes.

My Micro-Macrame Video Ad - First Try

This is a video for my book Micro-Macrame Video Ad
What do you think?
Anyway, Animoto is a cool free video slide creator - check it out for your own videos!
I am thinking of upgrading to a paid account so I can vary the amount of time each image plays instead of relying on their pre-formatted template.

Feeeeeedback, please!
