So thankful... Somerset HOME


The dryer had stopped drying and the kids were starting to fight yet again and then the mail lady dropped this into our mail slot in our front door. I was totally surprised. I knew the issue was out I just didn't know that I was getting the issue complimentary. So thankful for that. I just feel so grateful and honored to be a part of this beautiful Stampington publication.


There is something so surreal about seeing your work in a magazine. It is very gratifying and amazing! I encourage anyone who is thinking about getting their work published to go for it!


There are lots of great projects. One from Jen Swift and another from Regina at Creative Kismet who is going to be next weeks Art Biz Mama. 

Check it out if you have the chance and have a GREAT weekend!

I'm new here, so I'm just being introduced to your art, but I must say that those paper wreaths are beautiful. What a fantastic idea.

And congratulations on being published! Nothing like seeing your name in print and with those glorious photos of your work...a friend of mine once had something published in a magazine and he got it framed. It would be a lovely addition to your office wall. Trophy wall?

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Best wishes,
