Artful Blogging Summer 2014

Hope you all enjoyed a joyful Easter!  We had family in town visiting and it was wonderful, followed by a week's vacation for the kids.  Now I'm getting back into our routine, and I wanted to share some fun news with you.  Back in January, I was contacted by Christine Stephens, the editor of Stampington's Artful Blogging magazine.  She asked if I'd like to contribute an article, and of course I was thrilled to do so!

It will be published in the Summer 2014 issue, set to hit newsstands May 1st.  I received my artist's copy last week, and it's a great issue.  I was super excited to see that Maria from Rusty Hinge also had a article in this issue.  I love her blog!

It is so surreal to see my words and photos in a magazine, and this was a fun article to write.  I shared a treasure hunting story that I knew fellow bloggers could appreciate.  :)



(so cool to get a shout-out on the cover!)


We're finally seeing some spring blooms around here, so thought I'd give you a look at some vibrant forsythias on our dining table:




And I couldn't resist these soft-colored carnations at the grocery store today...



Happy spring!

That is so wonderful you are featured in the magazine, congrats!!
Loving your forsythias, mine still haven't bloomed yet and with this cold we've been having in Colorado I think they may have missed the boat. Love your beautiful photos as always.

I purchased the Artful Blogging issue today. I must say that I don't usually buy it but when I paged through it I saw your article...beyond beautiful so I purchased the magazine just for your article and I was not disappointed. Love it. Now I would like to know where you got the pattern for the whales!! I love them and have five nieces and nephews that would love them too! Hopefully it is a pattern that I can purchase. I will now be following your blog too!
