remain calm...


while shopping for some art goodies,

i happened upon a copy

of the newest somerset

Holidays and Celebrations edition.

(i think it is supposed to hit shelves sep 1st.)

I flipped through it and


My work is right there,

taking up all of page 17!!!


Those poor ladies in the shop looked over to find

me jumping up and down,  

hair falling out of the clip it was so carefully put in,

squealing to my 10 year old...

"Ohmygoodness, ohmygoodness, ohmygoodness!!"  was all I could say!

At Silver Bella 2 years ago, I hosted a swap full of amazing talent and one of the girls (thanks Kim!) submitted the entire work along with an article about the swap to somerset and they decided to put it in their magazine!!!

(You can find all of the work of these amazing ladies blogged about here)

"Ohmygoodness, ohmygoodness, ohmygoodness!!"

I know girls who have their work in these magazines and they are so cool about it. 

"yes, I have a few things in there"


"oh, that little thing?"


"oh, that really isn't anything"

Well, let me tell you...

I was not cool


Jumping up and down so very excited... I bought one. 

Now I am off to actually read it.

Gina! Thanks for letting me know....I'm back at school and wouldn't have seen it for weeks...but I'm going out tonight to find a few copies!

If nothing else, we will all make this issue a sell-out!

Hahaha! I think the jumping up and down is awesome! I know I did that the first time and tried to show it to everyone who would look. I was totally uncool about it!
I can't wait to see this one... need to figure out where I can get a copy!

Congrats, Gina!!! I remember when my little 'ol package was in Somerset Life - I was over the moon excited!! I didn't know that Kim submitted these (or I forgot). Did all the pages make it or just a few? Let me know if my page is in there...
