Published - Three Times This Month!

I don't know what it is, but I really am starting to think March is a lucky month for me.  I'm not kidding - all kinds of cool things always seem to happen to me in the month of March.  This month is no exception.

Today, on my lunch hour, I wandered into the local Hancock Fabric store in my area, and browsed through Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine while I was there.  And - what do you know -  one of my wire and glass necklaces is featured in the Boutique section.  I really had no idea this was going to be published, as Stampington hasn't contacted me yet.  But in any case, this was a really nice surprise today.


A few days ago, I found that my article in Polymer Cafe magazine is now on the newsstands.  They ended up publishing an alternate project I sent them (for the "how to" step-by-step details) instead of the original Victorian necklace and earrings design I submitted.  But that's alright - I love both necklace designs and I'm thrilled that they chose to publish one of them.



Last, I also just received information from Heather Skowood, author of Jewelry From Found Objects, that the book will be released by the publisher on March 11, 2011 (which is this Friday).  Amazon.com is currently taking pre-orders on this book; it features one of my repurposed statement necklaces made from vintage enamel brooches and earrings.  My complimentary copy of the book is on it's way to me.  I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the repurposed items being featured.  I love that sort of thing. :) 


Wow - what a whirlwind of a month it's proven to be - and we're only into the first week of the month.    Believe me - I can definitely handle the excitement.  :)

You go girl! Congrats! Stampington usually sends complimentary issues to those published in it's pages. Wonder why they didn't contact you? Wonder if they don't know how to get a hold of you, you might send them an email and ask them about it. They may just be behind on sending it to you. Anyway I thought I saw you walking down the street the other day, I was on my way to Harp's one evening. If I hadn't been going the opposite direction I would have stopped and said hi. So HI!
