Everybody Needs (Glass) Buttons ... I wrote an eBook!

Well the title just about sums it up ... I wrote an eBook - its called "Everybody Needs (Glass) Buttons!"

Its 21 pages long, packed full of photos, step by step instructions, inspiration, ideas, tips and lots of words - I'm very excited and rather proud of myself too :0) 

My eBook is available direct from my website as an automatic download - a 1.81mb PDF will arrive in your inbox all by itself - or you can buy it from my Etsy shop if you prefer, but you'll have to wait for me to email it to you.  If anybody knows of a way to set up an auto download from Etsy, please tell me!

I'm also very excited to be able to sell the brass Button Tool that my lovely friends at made to my design.  We launched this gorgeous little tool at the Flame Off a couple of weeks ago, when I showed how I use it during my demos - and they sold out very fast!  If you are in Europe you may find it cheaper and quicker to have a tool posted to you direct from the Beadpress website rather than from me.

You may have noticed from my Flickr album that I've been making a lot of Ring Toppers this week - the rings, nuts and even threaded mandrels are from Little Castle Designs (Beadpress do their own version too) - I've been using my Button Tool to shape my ring toppers, so its not only gorgeous but also rather versatile.

If you buy the eBook and Button Tool together from either my website or Etsy shop, you will save £2 on the combined price.

A friend of mine, Dianne Sandland is a professional book reviewer - and she reviewed my eBook! She said some incredibly nice things and now I really do feel all proper and writer-ish :0)  Read her Review here - Thank you Di! x
