A very pleasant surprise!

Back in November, I was contacted by editor Mary Forsell of Romantic Country magazine.  They wanted to highlight my blog in the feature called "The Blog Spot".  I was so surprised (to say the least) and was happy to forward the images requested.  I expected maybe a little line or two under my blog banner.
Wow, was I ever surprised when I received the Spring 2012 issue.  It is the nicest thing ever!  If feel that somehow Mary Forsell has visited my workroom or one of my shows or has spent some time visiting with me over a cup of coffee.  It was just the thing that I needed to recharge my batteries and help me get started on items for the upcoming 3 Friends Show mid-March.  Many, many thanks Mary !



If you haven't had the opportunity to pick up an issue, do so soon.  This is the sweetest, most inspirational magazine to hit the newsstands in a long time.  I can sit and get lost in all the dreamy pictures.  It's a great little escape during a busy day.  Pick one up and see for yourself! M.

Wow Martha,,,,,Where have YOU been hiding to wait till now to post? LOL! I literally RAN to my computer to post about being published TOO, a couple of weeks ago!
I've been meaning to stop by and congratulate you,,,,I've followed your blog for a while and it was fun to see you in there as well!
My little "Bungalow Bling" Blog got published, as did Jana for "Our" store, Joyworks! We were surprised and dumbfounded that we'd BOTH gotten emails/convo's from Mary! And couldn't believe we'd BOTH been published!
Happy to share those two blog pages with you, my dear! Congrats!

Hugs and Love,
Shell
