Double Feature ~ Somerset Life

It has been with some anticipation {to say the least} that I have waited to receive my contributor's copy of the Spring 2010 issue of Somerset Life.

Last December I was asked by the delightful new Editor-in-Chief, Christen Olivarez, to write two accompanying articles about the projects I had submitted. You may remember my canvas millinery and chicken wire frames I showed you last fall...

...and my dream of a perfect desk, where I showed you these pretty "school supplies" I made for myself.

The other day, Mr. Mailman finally delivered the magazine. With a bit of a tease on the front cover "SCHOOL GIRL CHIC Redux" and a snippet of a photo of my beaded clip board in the table of contents, I could not wait to see the presentation that the editors and photographers did with my work.

It was worth all the time in packaging my creations and schlepping them to the post office {and my husband wondering where his grandmother's silver mint julep cup had gone} to have Somerset do such a lovely layout and creative photography.

Now it's time for all of you to go out and pick up your copy! Look for my stories on pages 46 ~ 49...

...and on pages 80 ~ 83, that is if you can go directly to those pages.

The entire magazine is full of a collection of wonderful and eclectic ideas for everyone. As usual it is a terrific issue.

I am beyond thrilled to have my work and writing included in this group of writers, designers, and artists. I do not take it for granted and I am somewhat humbled.

Thank you Christen and Somerset Life for continuing to motivate me to keep "moving in so many creative directions."

And thank you all for taking the time to stop by and visit my blog.

I appreciate it, as always.

Ciao amici,
