Words in print!
After years of admiring so many talented artists in Belle Armoire magazine, and currently Belle Armoire Jewelry, and enjoying their written word and clever pieces, I finally mustered up enough courage to write and submit.
Well...guess what? VOILA!
Yes, it's true, they chose to publish one of my articles. I can't tell you how thrilling it is to see your name in print, and in such a styling magazine to boot. I got a lot of encouragement and support from my bestest art sisters, to just put it out there. Guess this is a year for that...just put it out there! The magazine was generous enough to give me a six page spread, wow. What an amazing job they do.
But, I have to brag about some of my friends who are in this issue as well. Diana Frey has a lovely article about some fun pearl and metal pieces, just stunning Diana. She even tells you how to make them. Check out that article, and go to her website for amazing eye candy. I am lucky enough to team teach with Diana. We do some very fun workshops together here at my home, the next one is in April (almost full guys) and then will be going to LA to teach together in May, at Inspirational Retreat. Info is on my blog.
We leave in the wee hours on Monday morning to go teach our separate classes at Adorn Me in Houston. I'm looking forward to the trip with a great friend (she's really organized and brings great snacks)!
And in the same issue is a beautiful article by my blogging buddy Jessica Moreau-Berry. She made some incredible necklaces using metal flowers and crystals. Just gorgeous Jessica. Congrats on being published, again!
So try to pick up a copy of the local Belle Armoire Jewelry if you can, enjoy the articles, and see all the talented artists in this issue. The featured artist is the talented Stephanie Lee, an amazing mentor and friend. She is so talented, and wise beyond her years. I took part her on-line journaling course...twice. She is a fabulous coach and cheerleader, and has an ability to put life's experiences in such a pleasant and calming manner.
Thanks for looking!!
