T Tuesday: twice published edition

Way back around the New Year I mentioned that I was sending something in for possible publication.  I was super excited about the piece and shared a couple little snippets.

On a whim I sent a collection of collage gift bags that I’d been working on as well to Sew Somerset. Much to my surprise, I was asked to write an article about my gift bags…then shortly after I heard that my other submission would also be included in the gallery section of the magazine,

I can’t even tell you what a lift it was getting this in the mail. Of course I knew it was coming but getting to hold it in my hands really brightened my day.

It’s a real honor to be included with so many wonderful artists.

This week marks the end of school…no more middle school for Mini-me. I will have two high school kids next fall! Freshman and senior. Many changes on the horizon. New adventures and challenges alike. It all builds character…and we could all use a bit of character right?! The world would be a pretty boring place if we all were exactly the same.

What are you doing today?


  1. I am SO thrilled for you. Happy, happy, happy. I love both projects, of course I always love anything sewn to paper. These are fabulous and I am so proud of you. You needed these at this very time in your life. It was the boost you needed to get you through these next weeks and months when people will tell you that it’s time for life to get back to normal.

    Thanks for sharing these accomplishments with us for T this week.
