Drum Roll Please.....

Now Available.....

The February/March Issue of Stamper's Sampler is now available at your local Book Seller!!! I picked up my copy at Barnes & Nobles earlier this afternoon. I submitted this piece in October 2007 after teaching a class at the Peoples Resource Center of Dupage County based on the magazine's "Tempting Template" Challenge. As a class we each created a Mixed Media Crown---after all each of us is a Princess (or QUEEN)!!! I submitted all of the finished Crowns created by the following participants in the class---Rosie Dixon, Rita Moon Kain, Yolanda Robsertson, Carol Thomas, Mary Warner and myself. I included class notes/instructions and a little bit about how each individual Crown was created. I was notified by the magazine in late November that my Crown had been selected for publication. I immediately contacted the magazine to find out if all of the Crowns were to be included---because they all were so lovely. They told me that my Crown was the only one being published in this issue, but they were going to keep the other Crowns to be considered for another of their publications, The Stamper's Sampler "Catch Up" Issue. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they all will get chosen to be published in the upcoming Catch Up Issue! I would post pix of all of the submitted Crowns, but one of the magazine's submission guidelines is that they can't have been previously published in either a magazine or on the internet. I will keep you updated as to what happens to the "Queen's Court"!!!

Congratulations on being published. I have yet to submit to Stampington. When I saw the crown I was so puzzled and couldn't imagine how artists were going to come up with something. Wowzers, your crown is wonderful. TFS.

Your goals and priorities for 2008 appear to be a perfect reflection of what I believe you are capable of.
