Exciting News In My Little Corner of Bloglandia


As many of my friends know, I have often reminded you to be proud of yourselves and what you have accomplished. All to often many of us don't take pride in what we have done or created. Heck we even tend to apologize, that we could have, should have, will do better, then maybe we can be proud of "me". You guys all know what I'm talking about, we all have done it.  Well I have to tell you that even though I am quick to tell you to be proud I really have a hard time following my own advice! So for this post I'm going to try to follow that advice. :) Cuz I am a bit proud of this accomplishment. For many of you it's really not all that big of a deal. But for me it falls on the huge side of big deals.

If you take a look on the right side (over there) just below Beatrice Potter's picture and quote you will see my Ginormous news. Yep, a bit of my art has been published in the May/June issue of Stampington's Belle Armoire !!!! Actually it's an interview about the Art of Presentation. It's about tags I created to accompany a couple of pieces of art jewelry I submitted. You know all that info you have to send with each piece identifying it etc.? I thought they deserved (the pieces) a bit more then throwing them in ziplock bags with the info printed on them. :) Little did I know that it would be those little tags, the "exclamation points", that would be published first. Who'da thought???



I'm not sure if I can enlarge (much less how) this page so you can read it. Maybe if you have time the next time you are in the book or craft store you could read the article in the magazine. :)  Luckily the photo I scanned from the magazine is large enough to see without a microscope.


If you look up at the top of the page you can see a bit of the pieces of jewelry I submitted. I guess those are to be publish in later issues. But for now it's my humble little tags. and I have to say it feels good to be able to share this with you my kindred souls, my Bloglandian family. Because without your love, constant encouragement, unconditional support, and acceptance I would not have the courage to put my art out there. In you my dear friends, I have found the acceptance of "me" that I never have before. For that I will always be more thankful then I can ever express. To be accepted as part of this art family is truly something to be proud of!!! 

Have a most audacious day filled with art, no matter where in the world you are.  p;)

Hey Pattie...congratulations!! Your tags are absolutely gorgeously shabby chic. So "Pattie!" I couldn't read the article with my old lady eyes but I'm sure it's equally as fab...

I'm so happy you shared this fantastic accomplishment with us. The tags are gorgeous and look at all that lacy beauty on them! I think we are sometimes raised to feel like shouting out our accomplishments is being boastful and a braggert. You know I think that it's OK, and even healthy to say I did alright, I did well. Congrats, Pattie. I will be heading off to the bookstore to get myself a copy so I can show everyone what my friend did.
