I used to pore over the issues of the beautiful magazine 'Artful Blogging' and be in awe of and somewhat intimidated by the talented bloggers that were featured.
So it's somewhat surreal to find myself and my little blog included in the latest issue!
I'm thrilled to say that I can now add 'published writer' to my list of credentials! :)
I must confess, it was fairly challenging for me to write a whole article about my 'story' and what blogging means to me. But now seeing the article and my photos in print, I feel proud of this personal accomplishment!
The message: Don't give up on your dreams! If I can do it, anyone can!!
I'm also excited to be featured in the new issue of Somerset Home!
I have a few pictures published in the back pages, along side some pretty amazing bloggers!
These publications are gorgeous, and filled with lots of eye candy and interesting articles; I'm honored to be included in them!
(You can purchase them in craft store retailers like Jo-Ann's and Michael's and in large bookstores, and also online.)
I am so grateful and feel so blessed for the opportunities that God has given me through this blog!
And from the bottom of my heart, I'm so thankful for each and every one of you that follow along with me, and support me on this blogging journey!
Have a fantastic rest of your week! :)

Congratulations Susan...you deserve it! Just the other day I was picking out some things at my Mother-n-Laws and got a "Slider Ovenex Starburst cake pan made in England" and I thought of you. I thought to myself, I can do something with this because you inspired me to add some vintage finds to my decor...Thanks Susan and hope others who see your published work will be inspired too! :)ReplyDelete
