I am getting PUBLISHED!!

Well, not me, of course.. One of my cards will be published in the March 2010 issue of the CardMaker Magazine!!! I don't submit my cards very often, the main reason is because all of the cards I make nowadays are for my classes.. I just do not have time to make additional cards and mail them out to the magazines for them to decide whether or not they would consider my work.. CardMaker Magazine takes email submissions, so once in a while I send them emails with the photos of my cards. So far I had sent three emails with a few cards in each. Had never heard back from them until tonight!!! They have accepted one of my cards!!!

Unfortunately, I can't tell or show you which card will be published :-(

But of course I just could not wait until March of the next year to share the news with you!! I am just too excited!!! My first publication!!! Woo Hoo!!

I am not surprised that you are going to be published. Your cards are unique and extremely artistic .I am only trying to tell you to ADVERTISE your work MORE, even if it means more "computer" work. I wish I could convince you. Each card you create has a theme and a message which do not clash, but complement each other . So BRAG a little !
Love you and your work and your young playful spirit, doina
