Last week I received an email that struck terror in my heart. It wasn't bad ~ thank the Lord. Nope ~ quite the opposite. It was from Tina, over at Stampington Magazine. She asked if I would be interested in sending over some photos of my work space for possible editorial consideration in the publication, "Where Women Create"? Yipes! I'm sorry, what did you say? I passed out.
I have the first issue of "Where Women Create" in hardback publication. I loved it immediately. It was a Christmas gift to my bestest friend, Denise@"Life is Yummy" that year. I know both our hearts skipped more than a few beats turning those fabulous glossy pages. Full of talented women, and where they practice their craft of turning the everyday into something glittery and magical.
Okay, so shortly after the initial shock wore off and I snapped back into reality. I finished reading the email. "Please send a few photos of your studio". Huh, uh....studio???? That may not be so easy. You see, like many of you, my studio is in my head. As well as, in the guest room closet, dining room table, garage and much to my husband dismay even in my Tahoe. Worse than that~the majority of my spaces scream organized chaos. I was all ready to shoot off the "I am truly honored and thank you SO much, but" email. Luckily, I have Denise, (have I ever mention her:) who screamed at me (I heard it all the way from Montana) "Are you crazy, ORGANIZE THAT ROOM!" So I did ~ I don't think it came out that bad either. Where I don't know if it will ever see the pages of "WWC" I am so happy that Tina contacted me. It really is an honor just to be considered. I don't know how much longer it will stay this way but at least, for now I have a perfectly lovely, bright and organized space to work (and dream big) in.
