WOYWW #264


Crafting of a different sort this week. For those of you who do not know, my first book is up on Amazon. Somewhere Down the Line was released on June 12th. I was so NOT prepared with promo materials or anything. I've spent the last week playing catch-up on promotion while doing the day job of music promos. 


In the pic you'll see the bookmarks I designed. I've modified this since printing this sheet. The QR code is smaller. The other thing is I'm making notebook/ pen sets. Our Ozarks Romance Authors conference is Sept. 20th. I need approx. 250 of the sets to put in the goody bags. 

I still have some thank you cards to make but I see lots of paper trimming/ scoring, gluing in my immediate future. But I am thankful for the task. 

Have no clue what I'm talking about? Every week we gather at Stamping Ground to link the world to our creative blog where Miss Julia Dunnit gives us the opportunity to let everyone see what we're up to. This is not a secret club. Anyone can play. Just check out the details HERE. We love making new friends!

Creative Blessings!

  1. Kelly, thank you so much for the beautiful AYCs that landed on my doorstep yesterday! I have passed one onto Julia as I went to see her this morning. That was such a lovely thing to do! I loved the amount of stamps that were on the envelope though, that made me laugh! I shall save those for someone who collects stamps :-)
    Hope you are well and happily crafting!
    Hugs, LLJ 16 xx

    1. It has been a learning process. But with everyone using smartphones now, they can scan the code and it will take them right to my amazon author page. Great since this is only an ebook. Thanks for stopping in Gillian. I'll get to you this week, I promise

  7. Congrats on the ebook! Nice looking bookmarks in the works. I see a goodly pile of clear stamps...maybe a fish peeking out. I just happen to have a couple extra ATCs and would love to swap with you, Kelly. My email is froggydesigns3 at yahoo dot com. As soon as I have your address I'll pop it in the mail. Thanks for the earlier visit! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #77

  8. Hi Kelly,

    Congratulations on being published! Yay. The bookmarks look great. I think Bridget has a good idea!

    Hmm, I looked up snakes in New Mexico and maybe I shouldn't have.... there are so many varieties. There's a lot of king snakes but none that specifically said Black King Snake. I heard that when rattlesnakes shed they also shed the rattle so I'm glad I didn't find that!

    Thank you for visiting me already!
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (17)

    1. Hi Kay. Thanks. Romance Authors do make the 'Trading Cards' May have to think on that.
      Black and King are the same thing and non-venomous. Me too on the rattler. Ewww. Creative Blessings!

  13. Wow, you published a book, that is really something, congratulations. Love the bookmarks but can never understand those QR things, I don't have a smart phone.
