Woah, things got really crazy the past couple of weeks. As I was getting ready to do the last giveaway for the Ring Bender my computer died. There is never a good time for your computer to die, but that really was the most inopportune time. In fact, I was actually in Indiana, with no children, and a full day to myself. I had to plans to spend the day knocking out a big section of my book that I had been working on. I was so dismayed when I opened up my laptop to find my screen covered in vertical lines. It looked like I was in jail. Turns out it was the logic board. My husband is so wonderful to me that as soon as I got home we went right to the store where he bought me a desktop computer so that I could continue to work while the laptop was out for repairs. Early Merry Christmas to me. 🙂
I have finalized the dates for my workshops in Tucson. Some are starting to fill up. So if you think you will be in Tucson for the Gem Show, please consider taking a workshop with me. I promise it will be a lot of fun. All the workshops are in the evening from 5:30 – 9:30, so all the shopping will be done for the day. Each workshop is only $165 and includes everything. All you need to do is show up and have some fun. Most are hydraulic press related, but you don’t have to have a press at home to enjoy these classes. In fact, the components workshop would be a great one as you can come and make tons of components that can be taken back home and incorporated into your work.

Are you Ready?????
How about winning a MINI HYDRAULIC PRESS from PotterUSA
That’s right! Kevin Potter has generously donated one of his new Mini Hydraulic Presses, valued at $325. The jack is not included. This giveaway is open to everyone. However, shipping is included only for those in the United States. If you live outside of the United States, shipping will be your responsibility. Even at that, it would still be a $325 savings.
I am doing this giveaway a little differently because in the past I have had to go through all the comments and copy and paste all the names and emails and select my winner from there. That was okay and all, but if I have a computer failure again….. well, let’s just say, I won’t be doing many more giveaways.
How do you enter? Just fill in your name and email address on this fun little form. By entering the giveaway you are giving me permission to add you to my email list and PotterUSA’s email list. You must confirm the subscription in order for your name to make it onto the entry form. Don’t worry, you can always unsubscribe if you wish. But this way, a computer will put all of your names onto a spreadsheet for me, easy peasy.
A little about the press:
- The Mini Hydraulic Press is worth $325.
- This MINI press is our smallest. JUST for pancake dies and silhouette dies.
- Uses 8 ton bottle jack (not included).
- Under 20 pounds.
- Does not use bracelet pancake dies. Silhouette dies can be used with urethane, but NOT contained urethane.
Our winner will be announced on January 5th, that is in just two weeks.
