I am trying to become better at "tooting my own horn". It does not come easily to me.
My FaceBook friends have seen this already, but I wanted to share this news here too. This is a teeny tiny accomplishment in the general scheme of things in life, but it does encourage me to keep 'putting my work 'out there' (wherever 'there' really is).
Some time ago I took heart in hand and entered a six inch Mixed Media Square to Cloth Paper Scissors for consideration. They had me send the piece in to them for further consideration, but that was the last I had heard. Until today when I got the Current issue in the mail! Right there on page 73! I am continually astounded at the creativity level of people in these challenges, and I am honored to have been chosen as well.
In the past, I have been blessed to have quilts included at Houston Quilt Festival Special Exhibits, and I was thrilled to be published in the Journal Quilt Project Book, but this is the first mixed media piece that I have 'adventured' into submitting anywhere. Just when I am considering not doing much mixed media any more!
I needed a wee lift today, and I sure got it. Thank you Cloth Paper Scissors!
Congratulations!!!!!!!! Trumpet your bugle! You have worked hard to hone your craft and it is wonderful to see you get some acknowledgement. I love your square, especially the sentiment. Be well!ReplyDelete
This is the first of many steps. The universe is just echoing what those around you have been saying for years....you are a wonderfully creative person who is great on the inside as well as the outside. In other words.....YOU GO GIRL!ReplyDelete
