Today it’s my turn to offer a free giveaway to celebrate our blogs 3rd Birthday.
I am giving away one of my Workshop in a Bag Kits. A Nuno Felt Bracelet Kit. It’s a great way to learn how to make nuno felt without having to have a large space or a big time commitment.
Kit contains: detailed instructions with lots of pictures, template, wool, hand dyed silk, rolling mat, and plastic.
There will be some choice as to the colour of the silk and the wool.
All you have to do is leave a comment below to be entered. It doesn’t matter where you live. I will mail it to you. I need to be able to contact you to get your snail mail address so anonymous comments won’t work. I will be doing a random draw on November 25th and announcing it on the 26th
I have not done much felting lately. Instead I have been working on a Nuno Felt Bracelet Kit. Sounds simple enough. I wrote up the instructions over a few days, going back over everything and adding in more and more detail, making thing more clear. That was the easy part. Next I had to take pictures. I don’t have any way of taking pictures of myself felting by myself so I enlisted my son to do the picture taking. He was very patient as I made a bracelet and took notes on my instructions of things I needed to change and add. It this point I am thinking well that was not so bad.
Next was picking out and editing the pictures. I do not know how people do photo editing for a living. It takes for ever and it is booooring. I did eventually get that all done so it was time to send it off to the spelling and grammar police. Now normally I am not a big fan of the spelling and grammar police as I am on of the top ten worst spellers in the world. However when you want to sell something to the public it really should be spelled correctly so you don’t look too bad. Than another friend locked my instructions and took all the meta data off my pictures. I had no idea how to do that. Thank heavens for friends.
Next I think I would like to get the instructions printed. I nearly fainted when I saw the price of colour copies. It was decided that a CD would work very well and cost much less. So next was learning how to burn CDs. It’s not hard but it was time consuming. Good thing there was some good TV to watch while I did that.
Yesterday I spent the day assembling kits. That took way longer than I thought. I will never do well in a sweatshop, I am much to slow. In the end I have lots of kits ready for my next show (Twist http://www.festivaltwist.org/en/ ) I am sure I will not sell them all as I made up 50 but they will be ready for other shows later in the year.
