It's Arrived!! The July Issue of Somerset Life! After a week of stalking the mailbox. You'd think I was waiting for a diamond necklace or even better chocolate! It came earlier than I thought it would & I'm sooo excited! I can't wait for you all to see it. I worked with Editor Amanda Nolan who I see from time to time of Jenny Doh's blog. she is so sweet & she did a wonderful job with my article!
I've read blog posts of artists saying that when their long awaited Somerset Life comes they wait until they've made themselves a drink and it's quiet so they can really enjoy it. I didn't do that. I drove home straight from the mailbox. Sat in my car while my ice cream was melting from my trip to the grocery store and ripped it open. The funny thing is I didn't even look for my article first. I flipped through every page looking at the eye candy and then later acknowledged that there were words in the magazine.
You can find my article on pages 11-113.
After I put away the groceries. I think I got all of them :) I sat on the sort of quiet couch and read the article. Amanda did a wonderful job portraying exactly what the meaning of these tags is for me. Not only to look pretty and for the trims to be used but that they also have a sentimental purpose.
The July issue comes out July 1st! & I have trouble tracking them down. In fact they don't even arrive at my Michaels for like a half a month after they come out. Then you have exactly one day to get one before they are gone. I'm SOO happy that in the middle of the internet world taking over tv, newspapers and magazines that Stampington is still going strong because of us tight knit people who appreciate eachother's visions!
I am celebrating this article by listing Many Many! Trim Tags in My Etsy shop. Come get some to display in frames in any room of your house!
