I was thrilled to arrive home last night to a comp copy of Jewelry Affaire Magazine published by Stampington.
This is especially exciting for me because a few years ago I was encouraged to submit jewelry to their magazine but something was holding me back. Clearly I was letting fear or something stand in my way. So when I received an email from the editor requesting that I submit my bead soup Grand Prize winning designs, I made myself do it.
It was a thrill to receive the printed magazine…
The magazine is a work of art…
The article has the wonderful story about my friend and author Lori Anderson and her wildly successful Bead Soup Blog Hop.
I had to chuckle that they added an i to my last name, even my Dad struggled with that after we were married.
So there I am on page 34… Pretty cool, huh? Of course, without the amazing hop hosted by Lori and the beautiful soup to create with, I would not have been so lucky so I thank my partner Sandi Volpe!
I will share my Junk Bonanza photos tomorrow! Have an amazing day!
