I am SO tickled by this!
this is one of those too good to be
true moments for me.
i have ALWAYS admired the Somerset Studio magazine...
but i had read the submission guidelines...
i knew you had to submit your own
ideas, articles, pictures to be lucky enough to find
your way into one of the beauties, and that
frankly scared the you know what out of me!
now if you have read my blog you KNOW i don't
consider myself to be a writer (or a teacher).
and because of that i always assumed i would never
be able to get into the "Vogue of the paper world"
because what would i write about? how many
years would it take me not only to formulate an
idea that was magazine worthy, but to then
turn around and write about it...
that would take ANOTHER YEAR (at least) !!!
so i let the dream go... which was sad, but honestly
knowing how i labor over the words made that okay.
but then i got the stop what your doing and do a little
dance email that made my year! hi coir, would you be
interested in.... you can imagine the rest.
and of course i was absolutely THRILLED TO BITS!
and what you are looking at here is the lovely proof
that it really did happen. OH! the joy!
could someone pinch me. this really does seem
to good to be true.
thank you Christen Olivarez.
thank you Ricë Freeman-Zachery.
thank you Somerset magazine.
thank you for doing what you
do and doing it, oh so well...
