Default Creativity Boot Camp for the Glass Beadmaker

Hi gang...I'm excited to announce my newest e-book, which will be out on March 6. I'm taking preorders now, and as a little thank-you to the "regulars" who always preorder my tuts (because you are the ones who make it possible for me to take time away from the torch to actually write these things!), I'm doing something new this time: If you preorder by January 28, you'll get the book for 50% off the regular cover price.

Anyway, here's the cover. If you'd like more info on what the book contains, just click on the photo and it'll take you to the tutorial info page.



I've found it so inspiring just working on this one...it's been a true labor of love for me, and I hope everyone will draw as much inspiration and motivation from this as I have from the writing process.

Thanks as always for your interest!

So...as I am one of those that you speak of, this isn't just alot of talk right? There are actual things I can make that will excite me again? that will lift my spirits? that will make me do a happy dance? Seriously, no joking here. I'm really, really struggling in so many areas and I need just one....one bit of something to make that's going to get me going! Is there any way you can email me just one tidbit on what I might be able to make from this book? I know why I'm in a slump, I know what is a creativity killer ( I live with him) and the words sound great but I need projects, I need stuff to make. I have tons of tutorials and even those are not something I want to do again. I want new, I want......sigh...life agaiN!

Reenie,

I feel for ya, sister, believe me I've been there!

This isn't a tutorial, in other words it won't teach you step by step how to make a certain design. There are tons of exercises and assignments in the book that are designed to get you to the torch, get you moving and thinking again creatively -- OUTSIDE of your comfort zone -- and keep you moving forward with fresh new work. If you're willing to do the challenges, I think I can help you. Can't do anything about your resident creativity killer, though...sorry.

Thanks so much for the orders, you guys!

The 50% off preorders end at midnight tonight -- after that, the preorder price jumps from $12.50 to $20.00 -- so I hope everyone who wanted in got theirs!

I tried to order, but the payment was not confirmed. It said to wait for confirmation by email. I hope it goes through today.

I ordered mine just now as well and got the same message as Melissa from the web site. The paypal payment receipt went through and I have received the email confirmation so we should be good to go!! Maybe there are just too many of us that waited until the last day

Ann and Melissa, I checked and your orders came through safe and sound.

To anyone who missed the "early preorder" sale, you can still save a little by preordering the e-book now at $5 off the regular cover price.

Thanks again for the orders!

One more day

ETA - technically, it's now officially 12.01am on the 28th, but I'm guessing that Kim isn't in my time zone .

Robyn, I'm so sorry, I hate to disappoint you (or anyone) who was anxiously waiting for the new e-book, but I pushed the release of the Boot Camp back to March 6th (next Wednesday). I had an 11th hour idea for the book that was too much fun to abandon. The good news is that the book will be twice the promised length. If you preordered, you should have received an email about this.

SO sorry...I think people would just fall over dead from shock if I ever managed to get a tutorial out on the planned release date!

Hey Kim~

As the author of multiple tutorials ( including one that is driving me insane right now!) I can really relate to the stress of trying to finish a tutorial by a promised date! Please don't worry about the delay, I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

However, I did pre-order by the 28th of January, but I didn't get an email, just so you know......

Hi Kim,

I pre-ordered and I did get your e-mail. Don't worry, I will still be anticiating my tutorial. I'm so glad you decided to add the extra idea and know I won't be disappointed.

I jinxed you Kim, I'm sorry . Not disappointed, now I have something better (if that's possible!) to look forward to . I can only imagine how much work putting together a tutorial must be, I have trouble writing a shopping list most days .

I got my email .
