LOOK WHAT I DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT TODAY!

I hope you will not think me foolish or boastful, but I must share this little story with you. Last weekend I bought this new issue of Somerset Memories. I don't always buy this magazine, but I really liked an article on memory boxes by Tammy Kushnir. I had looked at it a few times this week and really enjoyed the articles. While I was thumbing through it again at lunch today, I found this interesting advertisement for one of their other magazines. On page 99:


And here's the surprise! That is my article (the tiny little one next to the tiny little pink cover of the latest edition [published April 2008] of Haute Handbags) next to the page with the pic of my 2 vintage style collage bags. Both those bags are in my banner at the top of my blog and the article is primarily the instructions for how to make your own bags. It kind of freaked me out to see them in this unexpected place. I know it is a small thing, but it was really exciting to me. I wonder how many times I thumbed past them and didn't even notice.I loved so many of the articles and handbags in this edition and I was proud to be among them. And what an unexpected pleasure to see my bags and article used to sell more copies. Thanks, Stampington.

Thanks, everyone for not thinking me silly. I had another "sighting" over the weekend in the new BellAmoire Jewelry magazine. Please let me know if anyone else sees it.

Good for you! It must be exciting to see yourself in print. Thanks for the lovely note on my blog earlier. I'm anxious to see what you do. My friend's mom is a blogger, too, and has been in Haute Bags recently. You might know her, too - Lilla at
