Yesterday a chinese editor contacted me through Flickr saying she had seen my crafts there and was interested in featuring me in a book she's editing, called "Slow handicraft : 80 handmade creators and D.I.Y hot tips"! At first I was in doubt because I had never recieved a purposal like this and we hear about online scams all the time, but they answered very quickly to all of my questions and I've searched for her website + the editor and everything exists and is right.

The artists featured are from all over the world and we'll have 2 to 4 pages each. I'll have an interview + photos of 6 of my crafts + a personal photo + a step by step description with photos, teaching the readers of how to make one of my crafts Cheesy My name and website will also appear in my pages. Everything will be ready and set on June, 10 and then the book will be sold on her website + Ebay, because it'll only be edited in China!

I'm so excited about this oportunity, it seems like a great thing! See the articles she has previously published in magazines about other handmade artists:

I love the design of them! I've never been in a book before, I hope all this turns out good and I can't wait to see my pages Cheesy
