Hello all! How’s your Monday going? We are getting crazy wind and rain here! So, I’ve been puttering around the house, cleaning, reading and avoiding my artwork. I decided I needed a little space from it all.
I must give a huge “THANK YOU” to you sweet readers that left such encouraging and understanding comments. Your words truly touched me and were extremely comforting!
A beautiful and exciting distraction came along last week: the latest issue of Inspiration Vintage magazine, which I had the honor of contributing to! This issue is bursting with stunning pictures, delicious recipes and loads of vintage beauty! Check it out here.
My article is about my love of vintage ephemera, antique books and French perfume labels! I had a blast photographing some of my pretty old things. Of course, not all of the images made the cut but I thought I would share them with you…
Thank you again for all your support! I promise more art is to come. I hope you all have a wonderful, inspiring week.
Hello! Hope your week is off to a great start!
Today, I wanted to share the news that the new Artful Blogging is out and my blog is featured within its beautiful pages! I’m overjoyed and very humbled. I’ve loved this magazine for years and this past January I declared to the universe that – “One day, I will be in this publication!” It sounded so bold then and I hardly believed it but today I am so very proud to be listed among the amazing blogs in this issue. It’s an extra fabulous bonus that Claire’s portrait made it to the front cover!
As soon as I heard the magazine was out we ran over to Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy. It is a total trip to open a magazine and see your work inside. It is especially wonderful to see the portraits I took of my children!
This issue is brimming with beautiful blogs and gorgeous images. Check out these lovely blogs that caught my eye…
The Simple Life
Now go out and get yourself a copy or you can order one here. Make a cup of tea and enjoy all the beauty within!
With all the excitement about my upcoming trip to Paris, I totally forgot that the new Somerset Apprentice was coming out – the one in which I’m actually published! Eeek! I think I may have squealed out loud when this arrived in my mailbox yesterday…
I’ve been in the local newspaper but this took it to a whole new level! I adore Somerset magazines…to be in one is a dream! It felt so strange to open this issue up and see my name and artwork! Crazy!
It was fun writing the article and remembering my process.
This was a simple mixed media collage that I did two years ago! (Here is the original post about it.) When Somerset contacted me about publishing it, I almost fell off my chair. It just goes to show the power of a blog…you never know who might be reading it! So share your passions and gifts with the world!
I am feeling like a very, very blessed girl these days. I am grateful. Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement.
Have a wonderful weekend.
