Published - Artful Blogging

I can almost remember the day I got an email from Artful Blogging magazine. I had just returned home from running a few errands ( ie: thrift store and post office). I quickly ran upstairs to  check my email as I had been waiting for a few important replies.  When I sat down to refresh my computer screen I literally fell off my chair. I was in complete shock to read a magazine wanted to feature me in their upcoming fall issue.

Honestly, I was a little nervous. So many thoughts ran through my head. Did I have good enough photo’s for them to use, was the quality of the photos good enough and more then anything how much would I have to write. You might have figured out by now that I didn’t excel in English and writing class, and more then anything I really dislike writing which is kinda funny that I even have a blog.

With the help of my amazing cousin Michelle, who just happens to be an editor I was able to meet my writing deadline and turn in what I hoped reflected me and this blogging journey through a four page spread.

It feels so surreal to be included in this magazine full of great talent. I never dreamt that I would be able to say that I have been published in a magazine.


My  friend Leslie and her sweet little Rylan took a date to the book store to see the feature. This little blog has created so much joy in my life. I would have never meet these two without it.


Artful Blogging Magazine can be found at Joann’s and Barnes and Noble and will be in news stands until the end of October.  I don’t say it enough, but thanks for following along with me in this creative journey. I hope more then anything you are inspired to create, and to crate without being perfect because thats what handmade is all about.
