Past, Present, and Future

Six months ago I had not been a full time Design Team Member for any company.
Today, I am currently designing projects for two fabulous manufacturers and one online store:
{The Twinery}
{Market Street Stamps}
{A Walk Down Memory Lane}

Six months ago I had never had anything accepted for publication in a print magazine.
But...six months ago I received my first ever acceptance e-mail from an editor at Paper Crafts Magazine requesting two of my projects for publication!

It seemed like forever waiting for the day when I would be able to see my work in print...TODAY is the day!

Beginning with this issue I am scheduled to have at least one project published in print each month for the next six months.
All together I am scheduled to have 12 projects printed in 9 publications from from 2 major publishing companies...it is truly a dream come true!

Here's a peek at one of my projects from the Paper Crafts Special Issue: 350 Cards and Gifts.

{You'll have to pick up a copy to see my other project and the rest of the awesome projects in the issue. My projects are on pages 52 & 91.}

I have always loved crafting and I thank God for blessing me with these fabulous opportunities.

I may never have anything published again...or maybe I will.
For now, I am just enjoying the blessings I have been given and looking forward to what else the future might bring!
