Published and Featured!

G’day, friends and I hope you’re having a great Tuesday so far!

I’m really not one to toot my own horn, but the way I found out about my publication in the latest Stampington’s Stamper’s Sampler Catch Up issue was a funny one!

The Beau and I were in our local bookstore browsing through our magazines. We always have this routine; he stops by the men’s magazines first and then moves on to the arts collection. I’ll browse the cooking ones and then take my time in the crafts section. I happened to pick up an issue of the above magazine and was browsing through when I stumbled upon a card on p. 39. I thought to myself, “Hey! I have that stamp too… and the card looks really familiar; I wonder if it’s in someone’s gallery I’ve seen online?” Imagine my surprise/delight when I saw my own name below the card!!!

Well, let me tell you. I let out a gasp, booked it (ran like the wind) to find the Beau and yelled, “I GOT PUBLISHED!” Remember, we’re in a quiet little bookstore … oops!

It’s strange how I never received the issue in the mail but I’m happy that I found it. I do remember sending in the card now, but I sent that in almost 2 years ago! It just goes to show you that you never know what publications are looking for and how long they’ll hold on to your work. Don’t be discouraged if you have sent some stuff in for publication and haven’t heard back. At least you know from my experience that these things take time. 😉

My second “yippie!” is that Mercy chose my Canada card as one of her Magnificent Musings for the week. Thanks Mercy; what an honour!!! If you haven’t played along yet, I really suggest you head on over to Mercy’s blog. Each Tuesday she puts out a new sketch and you can interpret it exactly the way it is or moderate your project as you please.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my happy ramblings! Hugs.
