EXTRA! EXTRA! Read All About It!

Several months ago I was contacted by a lovely woman from Ladies Home Journal. She indicated that they were planning an upcoming story about weekend painting projects and asked if they could consider my TP roll fabric printing project for the magazine. Of course I said YES YES YES a thousand times YES!

Some time went by and I didn't hear anything so I assumed that they had found other projects for the story. Just when I had forgotten that the opportunity even existed, I received a nice note saying that I had a spot in the April edition! EEP!

I was stalking the grocery store magazine racks last week just waiting for the magazine to hit the stands. So far, I've only purchased 4 copies but I'm guessing I'll add another couple before the month is over :).

It's just a little article tucked away in a magazine that most people will probably never see but I don't care! It's still really exciting to see my name in print and to hopefully inspire a whole new audience with this tutorial. There are a lot of other really impressive projects in the article and I'm very proud to have a spot next to them.

Don't subscribe to LHJ? You can still see more info on my project and all of the others in the online story, here.

Added bonus, Tina Fey is on the cover and she's one of my favorite ladies!!

Thanks to all of you who keep me inspired and excited about crafting. This little nod has filled me with a rush of creative energy and I can't wait to let it out!!

Very big congratulations to you. I had a beaded piece included in an Aussie Bead magazine a few years ago and I can tell you, at first I thought how cool and was really stoked. But when I actually saw it in print....well I just can't tell you how exhilarating it was.. Oh, sorry, I don't have to tell you....YOU KNOW!!

I predict there will be many more appearances of your work in print!
