In addition, I feel very guilty that I haven't been keeping in touch with my blog friends. I so enjoy receiving your comments and even more, reading your posts. I vow to get back into the "groove" and start thinking about another "give-away" for my 100th post !
Okay - enough for the apologizing and whining and on to the BIG NEWS! The "I can't believe it" part. Last spring I hinted to you all that I was working a something but didn't want to reveal it 'cuz it might jinx it. Yes, I am a little superstitious. Anyway it must have worked, because I received an email a couple of weeks ago telling me that the a piece I submitted to Somerset Studio for their Vintage Halloween was going to be published! I had to read it over and over a few times to believe it. Today, my free issue came in the mail and it actually flipped open to the exact page - number 106! There it was: "The Ride by Nights"! I have to tell you, it is very surreal and a thrill to see it in print. I keep going back and looking at it to make sure!
On that note, I am beginning to make this year's Halloween creations. I have baskets of pumpkins waiting for something magical to happen to them. My mannequin is modeling a black feather boa and witch's hat to help me get the mojo going. Halloween is just around the corner, so keep checking back to see what I concoct!
