Hot Off the Press!

So today I was going to share another of the designs I was working on for Paper Artsy, but it turns out I have some news to share this morning. Quite some time ago, I was involved in a charm exchange with friends, hosted by Ruth Rae. Most of the ladies involved made charm bracelets with their pieces, but I decided to try something different and created a button necklace to string my charms on. A few others also came up with some really different and beautiful ways to enjoy their charms, which you can see on the project blog.

Anyway, shortly after our exchange, Belle Armoire put a call out for charm pieces so Ruth decided to submit the project and I sent off my necklace. The necklace just arrived home to me last Friday, after being published in the July/August 2007 issue. Here's how it looked:

They did a great job of photographing it-believe me, it wasn't easy! Anyway, it's very exciting to see it look like that. It really doesn't matter how many times your work is published-it's always a thrill to see something you created between the pages of a book or magazine. To be honest, sometimes it feels a little surreal. Thanks Ruth Rae for taking the time to submit on everyone's behalf! What a great way to start the day!
