Truly a Dream Come True
What's that saying..."when it rains it pours?" In today's mail I received my complimentary issue of Belle Armoire's Mar/April. And yes, this is all about me!!! But you know, I am just so thrilled to be in print again. My husband wants to send issues to all his friends, (I'm not sure they would care about jewelry, ha ha) so that is very cool. Most of my buddies don't know about it, because they aren't into jewelry. So, my art sisters take the brunt of this puffed out chest of mine, and news of yet another article published. This time in Belle Armoire.
I submitted some fun crocheted cuffs I made ages ago. They asked for more cuffs, and voila, a nice layout. The buttons used were really fun. On a few I went to that wonderful store about a half hours drive from here, that has more notions than you can imagine, Lina G's. I picked up a beautiful blue glass button, hand painted. I wasn't sure it would look right on a cuff, but I think it worked great. I mounted it on a brass stamping I just happened to pick up in France, gosh I like saying that!
The smaller cuff with the resin writing inside was from France also. I told you I love saying that! The cuffs were inspired by taking a workshop from Susan Lenart Kazmer, yes in France! The article is so old, it says "last fall". It was actually two falls ago, but who's counting. We learned how to crochet at our workshop, and I had been wanting to make some cuffs. I really want to make some chokers next, so I'll probably submit that too!! There are three cuffs in the article, so if you're around a book store, take a peek!
Also in this issue is a beautiful layout with Ruth Rae. What a talent she is. Can't wait to meet her at Adorn Me, where we will both be teaching, NEXT WEEK!! I would LOVE to own one of her yummy scarves. Hope she brings some to drool over.
So, this week truly has been a Dream Come True. Believe me, if I can get published, any of you can as well. It feels great to have a few under the ole belt. I might have unleashed a writing monster!!
