I’m Running A Little Behind

11 Mar, 2010 by in ARC tour, YA fiction 2 comments

Because I have been doing this!
20 food kits and 50 hygiene kits for the victims of the Chile earthquake. So far I have paid for it all out of pocket. We have $10 already donated in $75 in giveaway pledges. It is such a worth while cause. We really need a lot more money to help. This is enough for four-six families. It is a start and it goes in the mail today!!! Click the yellow DONATE button on the right hand sidebar. Every little bit helps and 100% goes directly to Chilean families.
So…since I am late 🙂 Here are my last three week’s “In My Mailbox Posts”

If you are interested in being on my ARC tour lists for any of these titles, please email me the name of the book and your address. THANKS!

Brightly Woven Purse Chile Relief Giveaway

09 Mar, 2010 by in purse 30 comments

Today’s Chiule relief giveaway is from Etsy seller Lorena Ferreira.
Hello everyone, my name is Lorena. I was born in Chile and raised in New York. I started knitting first (self taught at 19), then crocheting when I was expecting my second baby (I have 3), and finally weaving–self taught too–I read everything that comes into my hands, of course the internet, …but mainly I get my hands “dirty” and weave.

I explore, experiment, and intuition is my way of going about making all my textiles. I start with colors—putting them next to each other…sometimes it takes weeks for me to figure out what will go with what…and the where is an ongoing process during the weaving (or crocheting…or felting). I learned to wet felt last year (self taught…what a surprise)…and I love it.

I make one of a kind textiles, non-reproducible (I’ve tried) , unique… you will see (and feel hopefully).

This one of a kind and unique clutch is just bursting with color, ready to go to a party, to cocktails, work..anywhere. The truth is she just wants to be seen!!!
Crocheted in two shades of rosie pink and bulky rainbow…she then went for a swim in hot water and soap, and came out beautifully felted and strong.
Spunky hand felted blossom in handspun/handyed rainbow with black petals and a huge pinback so you can wear it on your coat, scarf….
she is 10-12″ wide
and 8″tall (without handles..add 3 more inches)
