What Day Is It Again....

....It felt like another post Christmas/pre New Year "Groundhog" day to me....getting up late, watching the birds feeding...we have Goldfinches again this year...so lovely to sit and watch them...the hours just whizz past...I play Professor Layton on my DSi for a few hours (Christmas pressie), lounge on the sofa eating copious amounts of chocolate (more Christmas pressies) and left over turkey...not at the same time I hasten to add...and then...today...something different happens!

Then our Postie made a delivery...I have to say, it has been strange not getting any mail for four days ...Anyway.... this is what he brought to me today:





I am not usually one for shouting about achievements and such like....I always feel a bit daft and embarrassed whittering on about stuff like that...so I will keep it short...and say..... O! M! G!... that little piece of art I made a few months ago is only on the front cover of Craft Stamper magazine! I am sooooooooooo excited .... so much so that I needed to do a little jig! And, the other pieces I made are in the mag too! Here are a couple of snippets of the projects I did:







But....I am going to be a party pooper now and not tell you what it is about...all I will say is that I was honoured to be asked to make this tutorial and, quite literally, it has made my 2009 a whole lot better...It has been a year of big changes for me and some days I have just wanted to crawl back under the duvet and hide away...but...to actually be asked to contribute to such a great magazine and see my artwork in there amongst so many esteemed crafters has just made me grin like the Cheshire cat!

Anyways...I am off to read the rest of the mag now...it looks like a good one with some fab projects in it too :O))
