Surprised and a Thrill

Miss Gracie says Hello and
Happy Sunday y'all

Last night I got the surprise and thrill of a lifetime. Some of my work is going to be in the new Somerset Digital Studio magazine! Whoo Hoo! I know some of you have already experienced this high but I've never even submitted anything before, so I just want to be happy and thrilled while the joy is still new!

We're having dinner at my mom's tonight and she said that to make sure my head didn't get too big I could sit at the kids table. LOL We don't even have any "kids" in the family around here...they're all out of state having their own kids ;-) much for impressing moms! LOL (actually she is very proud of me.

I submitted the pieces this past fall and never heard anything so wiped the entire thing from my mind. Until last night when I got an email from a friend telling me she saw that I was gong to be in the magazine! Truly, I thought it was a just mix up. But it's true...a spotlight artist in the new maggie. So how does one enjoy this and share with everyone without sounding like you're tooting your own horn? I like to think I'm a pretty humble woman and yet I have to admit to feeling very good about this. I'll have to think on this one.

And here is a picture of some new tags going up on Etsy shortly. 3 tags done as a little nod to Marie Antoinette.
I'm sure she didn't worry about such things.
