I don't know of any other mags that accept altered art, do you?
That is SOOOO awesome!! Congrats!!!!

Okay- this brings up a few questions I have and that have been heavily on my mind over the past couple of weeks:

I have never submitted anything of mine anywhere. The thought of it seemed ridiculous to me because in all honestly I have never felt my things were "publish worthy"!! I still doubt they are, but I have had many people tell me I should try. Not sure if they are just being "nice" and polite and overly complimentary to me, or if they really mean it.

Having said that, I have been really trying to take my stamping to a higher level, so to speak, as I would LOVE to get to the point where I actually could have something published!

So... my questions for you all: And PLEASE be honest!!! I not only can take it, but I am depending on it!

#1 Do you think I should try or am I out of my league?

#2 Is the competition so hard that I am setting myself up for disappointment anyway?

#3 Is it difficult to submit? My fave magazines are the Stampington ones. As a matter of fact, I could drop off submissions to their office.

I would so very much appreciate any thoughts and advice you ladies can give me. TIA!!!
