You Can DO it!!! Get Yourself Published!


Many of you may remember me talking some while ago, about submitting some work to a trade magazine. I was VERY nervous, I would go so far as to say I was scared! I purchase a lot of card magazines, and I always am awed by the work that I see in there, but I never had the guts to submit my own. I page through them and think to myself "Oh how cool it would be to see my name in print!" One day, while I was flipping through one of the new mags I had just purchased, I saw the Rock and Roll Challenge, which you know is right up my alley! So I bit the bullet, filled out the submission form and mailed my creation into the world. And instantly forgot about it.

About a week ago, my son came running in the house with the mail, saying "Mom, what's in this big envelope?" I hadn't bought anything that week, so I really didn't know. How delighted was I, to open the envelope and see my card, accepted to the Rock and Roll Challenge? Yes, that's right, I was PUBLISHED! And let me tell you all, if I can do it, YOU CAN TOO! Come on fellow artists and crafters! Submit your work to your favorite magazine of your trade. For a few cents postage, I got to see my name in print. Let me tell you, it was quite the ego boost!

So if you want to check out my work, it's published in the April 2010 edition of Scrap and Stamp Arts. It's on news stands now! :)
