i love both those ladies and well, what can i say? star struck. :)
I had a blast hanging with the most wonderful group of lovelies... KL (THANK YOU muah!), Dina (ireadyourblog.iloveyourkids :P), Heather (no more hugs for you...you know why ha!), Angie (i love you more than margaritas.amen.) i went and it was SO worth it. Just because of them. Really really. Don't get me wrong. The show was good, but they are the best. I'm a lucky girl. :)
Now I feel all happy and sweet.
Wanna know why else? Heather and Angie shared the best news. They had seen my layout published in the Feb/Mar issue of Somerset Mag!!! That was a shock because I seriously didn't know it was out already! Oh this has to be my favorite page. My favorite heart pouring art. Man. I can't wait to send the issue to my little friend Mario and his family. CAN YOU IMAGINE?! ack! love people. LOVE. *sigh.
here it is published in the Anatomy of a page section: I shared the process of how I made this page. I hope that helps spark some creative juices!
here it is before I sent it off:
his little words in spanish
crazy sewing lines
and my fav. loteria playing card :)
there was no other reason to want to get this published other than wanting to prove to my little Mario just how much I LOVE him. I KNOW he's never even seen a magazine! Maybe old books... but a magazine?! and HIM in a magazine?! oh holy moly. i started tearing up just thinking about it. i can never keep happy secrets :) but i know it's safe with you sweets!
so in all this excitement and happy fuzzy feelings, I decided to have a sale in my little belladrummer ETSY shop. Buy it. give it away. Great valentines gifts for you and someone you love *wink wink*. Show them you love them! do it. and you won't be breaking the bank with this sale :) This will be the last sale until everything goes. So enjoy sweet lovelies. Happy shopping. Happy art making and have a great week!
