Talking I may not have won the Artisan Award...

But I just found out that I'm going to be the next featured Guest Artist in Take Ten!

I just got an email from the editor...I'm so excited! You can see some of the art I sent them in my SCS gallery.

Thanks for all the inspiration, ideas and support, ladies!

Take Ten is a great magazine published by Stampington Company the publisher of Stamper's Sampler as well (my favorite magazine),

Wow, Kathy, what an honor indeed!!! I will look forward to that issue!!! I plan to spend my summer off summitting work as well. It is fun and what a rush when something gets published!!!

I have never seen a Take Ten magazine. Are they only in craft stores? We have a Super Walmart but that's about it. Congrats to the artist! Lynn

Thanks, everyone! It's just so funny to consider myself an 'artist' - I feel like I am SO far from that! (And I would NEVER post that I was a 'great artist' - not enough self confidence here!

Yes, Take Ten is a magazine that has sample cards that can be made in ten minutes or less. It's published by Stampington & Co - here's a link to the website for Take Ten: http://www.stampington.com/html/tss_take_ten.html

I have had several individual cards published before - I usually just send in my sample cards that I can't demo anymore (stamp sets from mini catalogs, retired stamp sets, etc). After one batch, they requested more of a specific technique, so I made a few of those. Then they requested a few more of a different technique, so in the end, I sent them a BUNCH of cards! In fact, I still owe them a few more techniques that they requested - I just haven't had time to make them yet.

I'm not sure which issue I'll be in - I need to send in my photo and questionnaire by June 10th, so I assume it'll be either the fall or winter issue.

Thanks for all the support and encouragement - you ladies are the greatest!
