Default I GOT PUBLISHED!!!!

I'm so excited, and I know each and everyone of you can relate to my excitement. I got home from an interview with Starbucks that went rather well, and checked my e-mail. Lo and behold there was an e-mail from someone at Paper Crafts magazine. A project that I submitted back in the middle of may as a general submission has been accepted for publishing. It's going to be in a new kids special issue of Paper Crafts magazine! I am still trying to pick my jaw up off the ground................I just can't believe it. Now I am totally jazzed to start whipping out stuff and start submitting and even trying my hand at a few design teams. Anyone know of a company that is looking for designers?? LOL Talk about a serious boost of confidence. WooHoo what an awesome Christmas present to me!!

Jen, that is wonderful news. I have been wondering how you were doing. I will be looking for your project. My BIL works for Starbucks in Franklin and loves it. With as many new ones that are going up in the area you should get a position. Let us know. Debbie

I'm still floating on cloud 9, I actually just reread the e-mail, just to make sure I wasn't dreaming........ROFL And I have to tell you A male friend of mine, who has always told me how good I am at making those cards....(LOL) was so excited for me last night. He could hear the permanent grin on my face through the phone. I couldn't believe it, a MAN just about as excited as I was. What a doll!

You are oh so right............the key is to just keep on going!! I never would have imagined in a million years that my 1st submission would be accepted, now I know it isn't that easy most of the time, now I just have to keep plugging away.

I have been looking online to try and find the other publications to submit work too, and just can't seem to find the websites. Anyone have any suggestions??
