I've been PUBLISHED-finally!-WOO HOO!... it was PRETTY DARN COOL to get this issue of Scrap&Stamp Arts in the mail. Now, I knew about an upcoming publication that is using my card and that's coming in January, but in that case, I got an email telling me this. So, it was MUCH to my surprise when this copy just showed up at my door the other day:
I KNEW I was in it, but I couldn't figure out WHERE and I tore through the issue so quickly that I had to go BACK a 2nd time to find my card, LOL!
They even spelled my name wrong, but I don't care ;) There it was, my "Wishing You LOVE" card using Darling Sisters by The Greeting Farm! Kinda fun, right?
Add to this HAPPY MAIL, I have some of the sweetest friends in the stamping biz, can I tell you?
I have to laugh when I think back to one of the first times I was getting ready to leave for a weekend to meet up w/ some stamping friends and knowing that my Dad and DH were both pretty leery of the idea... now, that's not to say there aren't some unfortunate "I told you so" cases, but such is life, right?
For the most part, the risk has been worth the reward. Some of my closest friendships have been formed since I started stamping 7 years ago and I'm just happy to share my joy and gratitude in that!
Well, I got some HAPPY MAIL over the past few weeks speaking of those friends that I just wanted to share with you.
My sweet friend Margie Cortina sent me this adorable Alice card with this SUPER cute stamp (think she knows I love butterflies? :) and this adorable DP:
I was so surprised when I opened the envelope-there it all was, for no reason-just 'cuz. I tell you there is NOTHING better than "just cuz". THANK YOU so much, Margie!
Then a few days later? I get this HUGE package from Tasha Beasley. Now, I sort of knew this was coming, but not to such a LARGE extent! Tasha completely SPOILED me w/ my favorite Tea from England, Clipper Teas, including my fave flavor, their Organic Orange/Coconut infusion and in addition, two BRAND NEW Alice in Wonderland edition teas, a Butterfly journal, a card, and some yummy chocolates. Seriously can you say SPOILED? Unfortunately the boxes got a bit beat up but it's SO SO SO much the thought that counts-THANK YOU Tasha!
Well, that's all for now but here's to HAPPY MAIL, good friends, and Tea w/ Alice :) xoxo ~Jess
