Introducing “A Mine Rich in Gems” Downloadable Feast Activities Workbooks

A Mine Rich in Gems is a completely different company, run by Wei and Lili Shang and their daughters. I'm devoting this week's post to their work because I think it is valuable (and because I'm a nice guy). Lili and Wei are creating 16-20 page full-color downloadable Feast Activities Workbooks for children ages 4-14. They have been at it for over a year, and are creating very useful and fun materials. Their first year's workbooks were made available for free, but now they are ready for business, and are making them available for $2.95 each - with discounts [...]

We have sold 4-color pens in the past, but they were not nearly as nice as these. Take a look. They are sleeker, with a nice rubber grip for easy handling. The iridescent teal color is rich and elegant. The metal clip and accent at the top give it a quality feel, and the stylus tip makes it incredibly useful when you are using your phone, tablet or any touch screen device. [...]
