It's Here! It's Here!

I have been patiently waiting for this magazine to come out since the summer...and now it is finally here! I am so thrilled to have two featured articles in it...the first is about little ol' Romantic Thoughts in their "Blogs with a View" section...I wrote about an experience that I shared with Sheila R. of Blessed and Distressed and a special connection that we made right here in blogland! You can read the original post about "the doll" here and Sheila's post about receiving it here.
I was also stunned when Jenny Doh, the editor of this fabulous magazine, asked me to send in my paper cones and write an article about them as well!
Two of these are currently available on my site in my Collage Art Collection. Unfortunately, the aqua and pink one received a little damage in the mail, so that one will just have to have a special home here in our studio ;).
And imagine my delight when I traveled to the back of the magazine and found one of my photos featured in the Miscellany category! (This photo is currently available for sale on my site).
Well, I hope you will forgive my gloating...I just can't help myself...hehe! This is by far one of the best publications out there for living an inspired life, and I am so honored to be featured! I do hope when it comes out (January 1st) that you will get a copy and see all of the wonderful art and inspiration it contains!
Till next time...

Oh Alice, Congratulations a million times over!

I cannot wait to get my copy and read and re-read it. Why be surprised? You are so talented and you know I'll be one of the first in line to sing your artistic praises (do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do ;)

Personally, I think you should sell copies on your site autographed for all your fans.

You go girl, so happy for you!

I'm off to Barnes and Noble to pick up the latest issue. I visited your Vingette site today also, your entry way is lovely and unusual. I have been wanting to move the bench setting currently there to something a bit more interesting - thanks for the inspiration. Also, I have the mate to your sweet little cherub lamp!

Happy New Year from Eileen and the BEautiful Starry Girl.

Both articles are wonderful, I enjoyed my time reading them…
In addition, the picture is fantastic; I adore the combination of the green with
