Oh Barbara, I just love this picture of Lori! I'm sure there is a reason for her finger stuck in the water bottle?? This tour is so much fun!

Alice said...

What a cute photo of Lori. I just got done reading her post.

I love the Harem bracelet and would love to win the kit. I'm really enjoying the blog tour!

Lori looks relaxed and enjoying the moment, making a great advertisement for painting with fire! What a fun bracelet. I think I will hop over there!

Courtney said...

This is such fun! Thank you.

Cynthia said...

I'm a follower of Lori's, and that picture of her is a good one - smiling and playing (ahem, I mean painting) with fire.
I would LOVE to win that kit!

The torch set up shown in the photo of Laurie (who seems to be having fun despite a burned finger) doesn't look as intimidating as I thought it would be. Gotta get to work on this for the garage.

I am enjoying this tour so much! I love the combination of fibers and enameled beads. I wish we had made it to Portland as we planned!

Hi Barbara
this virtual book tour was such a wonderful idea! Are you teaching the class that you taught the harem bracelet again next year at art and soul? If so I think I would take it!

Rosalynn said...

I just love Lori Anderson and the picture just suits her personality. Such a cool lady and such a great giveaway.
Thanks for this blog tour.

I am so excited to get started, love seeing all these pieces, I am sure I will need more colors:-)

SummersStudio said...

That's completely and totally me with a finger in the water bottle!

Pearl and Pebble said...

Oh! See now Barbara, it's the water bottle pictures that scare me!! Say something soothing because my awesome book came today:)

I'm enjoying all the reviews. And I do follow your blog. Didn't realize I was supposed to leave a comment on each of the blogs to be entered for the giveaways, so am going back to some of them. It sounds like a great book, so I guess it will be next on my list, although lighting my torch for the first time kind of scares me. I'm not real great with fire. :)
