Good Morning, everyone!
A special occasion???
I just have to brag a little bit. ;-)
I've finally been published!!!
Back in early November, I received an email Helen Self who is Freelance Deputy Editor of Papercraft Inspirations. She happened along my blog and absolutely loved one of my cards and wanted to publish it in a 2-page gallery for bloggers around the world. Of course, I was absolutely floored and totally accepted!
I had originally submitted THIS card to 2 other magazines and it didn't get picked up. So, to say I was just a little bit excited is an understatement. I've submitted cards many times, but to no avail, I just can't seem to produce what the editors are looking for. After Helen emailed me, it made me wonder just who visits our blogs.
Here's a peek at the magazine cover!
|It went on sale in December in the UK, but a friend picked it up for me last week, here in Pennyslvania.|
And, here's a peek at my page!
|It may be a tiny picture, but I'm thrilled, just the same. You can click to enlarge this photo so you can read the little caption. ;-)|
I didn't forget!
I'm going to be giving away 1 of the free Thank-You stamp sets that was given away by PTI for the December release. I was lucky enough to place a few orders and have an extra one. I'll also be throwing in some other goodies to make a nice little Stampin' package.
You will have a few ways to earn entries for this mini stamp set:
***One entry will be earned by commenting on your feelings of when you first got published.....or which magazines you have submitted to and hope to get published by.
***One entry will be earned by following my blog. If you are already a follower, just mention that in your post.
***One entry will be earned by following my Facebook page. Again, if you already follow me on FB, just mention that in your post.
Here are the details:
You will have until midnight, Wednesday, February 29th to submit all of your entries for the drawing. I will then put all entries into a hat and draw a winner on March 1st. Winner will be posted on Friday, March 2nd right here on my blog. Good luck!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart in sharing my good news. I know it's a tiny little blurb, but it's my very first publication.........It can only get better from here, right?
Thanks so much for visiting today!
