A Thank You and CardMaker Magazine
Happy Friday everyone!! Before I get started, I just want to say thank you to all of you for your well wishes regarding the DT for House Mouse. I haven't heard anything either way yet, but I truly believe everything happens for a reason, so if I'm not accepted I believe it's because it's just not the right time for me now, and I will be happy just being able to be part of the challenges. But again thanks to you all.
It's snowing lightly here and very beautiful. We're hoping to get a lot more. Living in a mountain resort town is wonderful, however you do depend on certain things in order to eek out a living. In the winter it's snow, and we haven't had enough of it this year, but hopefully our storm door is opening and we'll be able to pull this winter off. With the economy the way it is I know that so many are having hard times - we have lost several businesses in town within just the past few months, and the rest of us just take it one day - literally - at a time
On a brighter note, some months back I received notice from CardMaker Magazine that they had accepted one of my submissions. I am so amazed, honored and happy to be included in such a wonderful magazine. The name of my card is Baby Dear and is included in the March/April issue. Of course then being who I am, I was concerned that I would be a one hit wonder - and that would be the end. Happily that is not the case, another one of my cards has been picked up for future publication with CardMaker, and I have also recently been published in Somerset "Gallery" magazine. I will post that at another time.
Have a wonderful weekend and try to spend at least some time for yourself, doing what YOU love.
