I can finally tell about Beetle Bits System
Finally can tell what all happened with the BB system & the shoe. Remember Ray seen the Dorothy shoe I posted here & asked to email him. He used the shoe in an ad. But then I did a 3 1/2 page tutorial for Glass Pattern Quarterly making a Dorothy shoe (2 actually) & Ray used those shoes in an ad that appeared in GPQ. It's in the summer issue & has finally come out & I can tell.
I had so much fun working with Ray. When this all started it was like a tornado hit & my life was the shoe for about a month & a half. Ray even let me be involved with the ad & I felt so part of the whole thing. It was fun as it could be. GPQ was real nice to work with too. I took pics while making the shoe & wrote a tutorial & burned a CD & mailed it in. An editor called & interviewed me over the phone & edited the tutorial for me. I was genuinely surprised how much they kept of what I originally said.
I was going to make a PDF file of the tutorial but all rights & pics to the tutorial now belong to GPQ.Borders has GPQ magazine & not sure what other bookstores but you can read it while visiting the store. Here's a pic of the ad.
