Did you see the awesome book review Tonia Davenport gave me for Explore, Create, Resinate; Mixed Media Techniques Using ICE Resin? I was holding my breath, waiting for the first review to come out. Luckily, Tonia liked the book and had some really nice things to say about it. (Insert a mental picture of me jumping for joy right about now.)
The reason Tonia’s review is an important one is because she is the acquisitions editor for NorthLight, the craft book imprint of F&W Publications. Many, many of my artist friends have published with NorthLight and Tonia was the first person they spoke to when it came to proposing and fleshing out their ideas. She is an exceptional editor, an artist herself and a very detail-oriented personality. From everything I’ve heard about her she’s very good at her job.
The fact that the editors and powers-that-be in charge of the CreateMixedMedia website wanted Tonia to do a book review says something very important to me. They are not just about selling books, they are about building a community for like-minded folks and disseminating valuable information to people who love mixed-media. That’s also one of the reasons I write a monthly column for them as a contributing editor because they are all about getting solid and useful information into people’s hands.
In addition to doing the book review, Tonia made a really beautiful necklace using ICE Resin and one of our hobnob mixed metal bezels. Rather than keeping it for herself, she added her handmade necklace to the grand prize giveaway that’s going on right now.
Head over to the website and leave a comment about what new and interesting craft product do you want to experiment with and you will be entered to win Tonia’s first-place prize. There’s also a second chance to win my book, a copy of Susan’s Making Connections book and also ICE Resin and bezels. The contest ends April 2, so hurry over now.
