    Lol, you aren't crazy, unless I am too - and no matter what my family says, I know I'm not...

    I saw it too, Click here - and discover Boston Blocks, a new piecing technique. I didn't click on it - too leery - but just checked and still get it under threads in the main category.

    there's nothing to be afraid of. Rhonda, one of our members wrote an e-book. she has partnered with Admin so he can promote it for her here at the board.

    Oh, ok. Was wondering what was going on. Scared me a bit....thought maybe gremlins were starting to take over or something. :)

    No, it isn't only you. There are some right under your first post of this thread blinking away. I wonder what that's all about.

So................I could'nt resist I ordered it right up. Only had a chance to glance through it but looks very easy, new and lots of pictures. Very east to download I'm not a computer person and I did it in only a minute. I'm happy about it! Terry

    Yep, the announcement is going to be made on Wednesday.

    This is the first time a member of this message board made an e-book that's going to be promoted on the board itself.

    I've run promos for other e-books before, but never for our own user.

    Very exciting :)

    sewhappy57, if you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to ask Rhonda.

    I talked to her, and she said she would be happy to help out with anything.
    We are going to set up a dedicated topic for support, but you can also PM her.

    Oh, and thank you for your order! :)

    Sorry if it startled anyone! I didn't know it had started yet!

    I have mentioned the EBook to a couple of people but was waiting for it to be done to say too much.

    I did a tutorial on the Bookmarks and in that tutorial I showed how to make "Boston Blocks" with my cut down method.

    Well everyone liked the bookmarks so well that I decided to write an EBook that expands on that process and includes another project.

    I will do a thread on this so if you want to ask anything I can answer.

    And yes thank you for the orders! I appreciate that anyone is interested in learning what I have to offer! And the E-Book includes a free template if you need one. Just email me!

    I will still be doing tutorials for the Newsletter. Should have more soon.

    I think it's wonderful Rhonda, congratulations! :) Oh it would be nice if admin could change the ads to non blinking and flashing ones, maybe it's just me but every blink makes me just about jump outta my seat lol, really stressful to look at the forum pages with the blinking, instead of relaxing, but i just love looking at your blocks, so many good ideas

    Barb, the ad at the top (after first posts) is only for the initial promotion. It will be gone in a couple of days.

    I wrote this in the PM, and I'm going to repost it here, since other people might be interested as well.

    I'm going to take that ad down in a bit.

    I just need it to grab as much attention as possible to make sure everyone on the board is aware about the release of the e-book and about the introductory discount price.

    The rationale here is simple: the more noticeable the ad, the less is the amount of time it needs to run.

    So using a more subtle ad would require me to run it for a much longer period of time, which is something I don't want to do.
    So everyone, please bear with it for a few days.

    The newsletter announcement about this e-book comes out on Wednesday, and the ad on the message board will be taken off on Thursday evening.

    I was wondering the same thing. I took my computer in for an optimization and some sites aren't working the way they used to. So I thought it was just me.

    Yes, they say something about wanting to learn to do the blocks. I figured it must be something new that was added
