Okay everyone, I'm doing a GIVEAWAY!!!! For about 3 or 4 years now I've had lots of my students and fellow teachers say I should write a book. The only thing is since I teach and create in so many mediums and crafts I'm having a hard time deciding what the focus should be for the book. Right now I have a book proposal almost ready to send to publishers and the focus is mixed media for paper,fiber,metal and paint artists. So...before I send it out there (ready to be accepted or rejected) I had an idea....I thought I would ask my loyal blog friends, students and family: What do you want to see in a craft/art/mixed media type book? What is lacking in the market that hasn't been done already? Likes/dislikes about whats out there? Do you want a pretty picture book full of eye candy with lots of innovative ideas, step by step instruction and techniques (that's my preference)? Do you have several crafts that you dabble in and would like to see more cross over techniques using different or unexpected mediums to apply to your craft that would make it unique? If you know me and my style, what is it about my work that would make a good book? Would a book on funky,mixed media tassels be up your alley or more variety on several mediums? So what's the giveaway? $60 gift certificate to my Etsy store, shadesofakasha.etsy.com!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on what you would like me to write a book about in the crafting field and what it is about my work that pleases you (please try to be specific). Leave a comment here or my facebook page by June 15. Only one entry per person. Be sure to leave your contact info so I can get a hold of you. Winner will be announced June 16th! Thank you soooooo much!!
