Most of you know I'm fighting a nasty case of Lyme disease. It's vicious, and to trick the little ......monsters (ha, not the first word that came to my mind) my antibiotics are changed on a regular basis. I started a new one the day of sign ups, and today I have to start a new one because frankly, I had no idea meds could make me THAT sick. But they can, and they do, and they did.
Anyway. Rick is following my input on how I need the spreadsheets organized. First, we had to keep a clean copy of the original spreadsheet with time hacks, as that is how you'll be listed. Second, I needed an alphabetical list so I can post it and you can find yourself easily. Next, I need a spreadsheet with just international people. Then one with those who only want a seed bead partner.
|Don't be afraid of seed beads, though...did you see what Zack designed with this soup for my book?|
Then I have to see who had whom for partners before so I hopefully don't repeat.
Then I match people with different styles.
Then I fix all the missing zip codes, partial addresses, things like that.
Next I enter all the emails into Mail Chimp so I can send you information. You will get more than a few emails from me, so if you're not, CHECK YOUR SPAM...also make sure your partner's email doesn't hit spam.
I know you're excited but hang in there! The list of participants should (SHOULD) be posted this weekend. Matching partners is another week, and then off you go!
Please either follow this blog and/or www.PrettyThingsBlog.com so you don't miss a thing.
And hey, but just askin'...have you read the book? Feel free to leave your review of it at Amazon.com and BN.com. Thankyouverymuch.
