Tomorrow is the big release party for The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry and Volume 8 of Craft Magazine at Craft-o-Rama and I am finally feeling like things are coming together. I have bought every craft store in South Austin out of button covers to make Office Hanky Panky Rings. I ordered 60 cupcakes (30 chocolate and 30 vanilla) and Hope and I made custom book cover cupcake toppers for all of them. I noticed the party got mentioned in The Austin Chronicle and The Austinist. I also got all the amazing door prizes gathered up, it’s worth coming just to win some resin, paint or rub-ons.
But wait what if you don’t live in Austin, but want to win a door prize? Well we can make that happen. Most of the prizes I have 2 of so I will be giving away one at the party and one right here on the blog. Winners announced next Saturday September 6th. I’m bribing you a bit with the prizes I’ll admit. In order to win you have to either have A) leave a review on Amazon B) Review the book on your own blog C) Buy a copy (you can email me a reciept) D) Make a project from the book and add it to our Customer Gallery and then leave a comment right here to let me know about it! Be sure to leave your email in the comment and you might also mention which prize you want.
Ok onto the amazing prizes….
First up we have four 3 packs of rub-ons by Hambly Screen Prints. I love their amazingly fun and hip designs and I could not resist using them in The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry on the Transfer Me Jewelry set. You will win a set of Out on a Limb, Dingbats & Robots and Stamp Alphabet Letters. Sure these rub-ons were meant for paper, but remember almost anything can be made into jewelry.
Have you been dying to whip up your own version of The Secretaries Delight Bracelet? Well the kind people at Environmental Technologies can make that happen. This is the exact stuff I used for years to whip up my resin jewelry. On the blog I will probably be giving away the set of mixing cups and the Transparent Dye Kits. The resin, mold release agent and resin spray will be given away at the party since that stuff is tricky to mail with all kinds of rules and regulations.
Next up we have a variety pack of Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger and a Ready-to-Go Blank Board Book by Create and Treasure.
We have a ton of Finishing Touches Iron On Fusible Thread by Kreinik to give away at the party and here on the blog!
Love to doodle, well we have you covered in the pen department. Goodies from Sakura of America and Jet Pens galore!
There are a couple of different prize packs from Tulip including patches, Glitter Bond, Tie-Dye Kits and More. Rumor has it there is a package on the way with even more prizes not to mention you might have noticed in the book that I am quite smitten on their Liquid Fusion Glue. You better bet there will be plenty of that tomorrow to put our rings together with!
You better bet your bottom dollar we have some Naughty Secretary Club T-shirts to give away!
Thanks to Bead Style Books we have copies of Easy Birthstone Jewelry and Jewelry Just for You to give away!
Have you seen the fabu Crafty Chica product line from dear friend Kathy Cano Murillo! It’s amazing all the paint, tote bags, glitter, shrines – it’s enough to make a crafty girls head spin! We will have some Crafty Chica prizes to give away here on the blog and at the party! Check out the back page of Volume 8 of Craft Magazine tomorrow at the party to see the I’m a Chica Too ad with pictures of tons of crafters including lil’ ole me.
You are going to need to brush up on your embroidery skills in order to make the All Access Pass Brooch in The Naughty Secretary Club Book. There is no better way than to snag yourself an embroidery kit or two from Sublime Stitching. At the party and on the blog snag yourself some patterns (oh I spy the new Black Apple set), card set or a Petit Embroidery Kit!
Don’t forget my co-hosts with this shin-dig tomorrow, Craft Magazine and lovely Rachel Hobson of Average Jane Crafter. You have to hit the party to win these prizes, but two lucky peeps can win Craft T-shirts and 1 lucky ducky will go home with a box set of Craft Magazine. The party is also to celebrate the launch of Volume 8 of the magazine which I am especially fond of since there is a full page ad for The Naughty Secretary Club right in the front!
See you tomorrow and good luck with the contest!
