Shut Down and Books to Sell

After my last post, Blogger bot decided that I was a spam blog...even tho I have read everything the blog information page sent me to, I still don't understand it. I had to respond and ask them to check my blog out to verify that indeed, I am a real person!

Two and a half days later, they have let me back on my blog.

Yesterday, Rachel, my high school assistant, helped me take down a whole bunch of books that I want to get rid of. She then typed up the list, which, double spaced, is 6 pages long.

Now I am trying to figure out the best way to do this...that is...sell them...

So I think what I will do is to ask people who are interested to contact me via email and I will send them the list to review. They can then chose what they want, and if I still have it, I will send a bill via Pay Pal. Lots of people on the quiltart list gave me various ideas but since I have a lot of books, I thought maybe this would be the best way. I just have to go through the list and then add on a sale price for the books. Then I will be able to figure out postage per person.

I had thought about putting about 15 up on the blog at a time but then wondered if someone would like to get another one several groups later and that it would cost more to mail several, if you want a list, let me know.

I am in the process of doing my proposal for the Juvenile Justice Center which has to be turned in Tuesday afternoon. This is to let them know what and how much art I can do and what my pricing it. Then, in a couple of weeks I go for the oral interview with the selection board. I hope, I hope, I hope!!!

And, I am waiting to hear if I get in to Quilt week they should send out the notifications.

I do have two of my Life Circles going to PIQF and one going to Chandler for Art Quilts III. Guess I should put some sleeves on them. Oh yeah, and I need to mount some more of my smaller works to go off to Scottsdale...

So what do I do? Sit in a slump playing Spider Solitare. Oh well, the past couple of days I have been really busy doing clean up in my studio so I guess I can sit a spell.

I'd love to see the list of books, if it's available and you're still selling them. My email address is

If the books are still available, I'd like to see the list. One can never have enough books!
