Christmas came early!!!!!!!

Happiest girl ever! That's me right now...


After checking my mail on Saturday...looked in my mailbox and saw a Somerset magazine all wrapped up in it's plastic...but what caught my eye was the yellow sheet on the outside telling me I had been published, and here was my complimentary copy. So over-the-moon about it right now!

I had made this banner sometime late Spring or Summer and knew I was under the wire for the cut-off date but sent it in anyway.
Hoping....then I kinda forgot about it...only kinda...:)
Because every time I read ANY Somerset magazine I dream of being in it!
And now I am. So I'm encouraging all of you who have considered sending in your work to do so, because if I can do it, you can too. I'm living proof on page 148 of the newest Somerset Studio Gallery magazine.
So come on...send something in...you have nothing to lose and so much to gain..:)

Congrats at being in the magazine - I was once a few years ago and we can't get it here in the UK - I remember the thrill of receiving it in the mail - your pieces are lovely x
