Ever wish you had another set of hands?????

O.K., I exaggerate, arms would be alright!
Bottom line, is I've got lots to do.......I know, who doesn't, right?
It's a busy time here as the school year is winding down, birthdays are coming up (dh's tomorrow!) and I did something liberating today................or will be soon :).
Sending a package out, but not just any package....drumroll please...........................................................
it's an art submission to Somerset Life magazine.
Big step, o.k., huge step for me. For some reason it's really important to me to be published, maybe validation that my artwork is decent? I don't know, I just wish it wasn't so important to me ~ know what I mean?
In any event, and no matter the outcome, I'm glad I did it and will continue to do it until it happens.
I'll be over-the-moon happy when I see something I've created in a Somerset publication.....
wish me luck....pretty please?
