15 Minutes of Fame!

Have you seen it? I can hardly believe it myself, but there it is beginning on page 28. A five page article featuring me and my little holiday creations in the Autumn issue of Artful Blogging, sandwiched between some of my favorite mentors and friends. When I picked up the mail today and saw the issue I screamed, I laughed and then I got all misty eyed...and that was before I opened the package. Artful Blogging is one of those magazines that I read and re-read from cover to cover. It appeals to all the senses with lush imagery and inspiring text. Thank you Staci Dumoski for being the Master at the helm and making it possible for so many creative souls to connect to something outside ourselves.

I don't think I'll have to be dodging the paparazzi nor dressing incognito anytime soon but I have my sunglasses handy just in case. Now where did I put them...oh dear, there will be no living with these little guys after this!
