My good news:
I love getting surprises in my mailbox. So much so that sometimes I order a good used book from Amazon and then purposely try to forget about it... when the mail shows up a few days later, I have a nice little "surprise" package waiting for me. (Does anyone else do this? If you haven't you should. Surprise yourself. You know you deserve it:)).
This week was even better-- a real unplanned surprise. For a minute, I couldn't figure out why Art Doll Quarterly was in my mailbox. And then I remembered answering Somerset's call for upcycled art dolls, and mailing off my recycled sweater/papier mache fairy doll, Susan Gloria last fall.
I wrote about her last spring. And now she's in one of my very favorite magazines! Yay! Is that bragging? I hope not. (And I remembered I'd let you know if she made the magazine). It's just such a pleasure and a treat to be in a Somerset publication. (I've even left the magazine on the kitchen table, on the entry table, on my work table this week-- just so I can casually walk by, flip the pages, and say, "Oh ya, I'm in there... la, la, la." Complete narcissism, I know. But I'm thinking of it as nice, clean, fun narcissism :-D
Anyhoo...moving on... more good news:
If you live in Utah, circle your calendar for this date:
February 16th @ 12:00 noon. I'm planning a lunch @ Oakridge Country Club for local blog women. Last November, after running into a few local creative blogger ladies, we decided that actually meeting more local blogger ladies would be really fun. Now it's time to spread the word-- so if your local, email me for details. The more the merrier!
I'm sorry the blog posts have been skimpy here lately. I'm so busy working on hearts, flowers, and all sorts of handmade goodies for the local children's shop I'm selling to. But when things settle down, I'll be back to better blogging. Hope all's well with you. Lotsa love, xoxoKelly
