Accccccck! I'm IN here,,,,,,Somewhere
My Sister in Law Mary called me Thursday evening to say I'd been Published in Romantic Country.......She had her (subscription) copy in her hot little hands in HER home,,,,,Like a Bazillion Miles away, over on the Penninsula (Vampire Country). You CAN "get there from here, but it's a half a day's drive away.......
Okay, SO? I kind of knew it MIGHT happen, I'd had several Emails back and forth with the Publisher,,,,Submitted Photos,,,, but figured I wouldn't believe it, till I saw it in Print, or at least got a confirmation from the Editor, Mary........(And, No My Sister in Law is NOT the Editor-New York City and Port Angeles are WORLDS apart!)
So Okay Today? Well, actually just minutes ago, I log on and There on my Blog List is my dear friend Anne Lorys from Fiona and Twig http://fionaandtwig.blogspot.com/ ??? And Annies Posted:
A:) She's in it too with some awesome Mannie Photos
B:) She's got a throat infection and "Mr. Twig" picked up not only her MEDS, but the LATEST copy already, of Romantic Country ON THE MAGAZINE STAND!!!
Not on the Stands yet in Washington State! Ackkk!
Okay, if you've been a long time follower, reader, OR just Check out the Blogs I follow,,,,,,You'll see my Workplace,,,okay, really? My "Second Home" and my "Extended Family" and you KNOW about Joyworks!http://joyworks-shopgirl.blogspot.com/ Jana, My Bosses daughter (friend and co-worker) started the Joyworks Blog about "our" store several months before I ever started blogging. In fact, she inspired me to create my own Blog.
(Quick Sidebar here and if you STILL don't have your OWN blog, consider THIS! I used to post the WORST Photos,,sometimes they'd even go "on" Sideways" and I'd ask my "followers" to turn the heads or use their imaginations......LOL. It took me a while to learn better editing and I STILL learn Camera skills and other features from blog friends!......So YOU can do it too!)
Well, this Fall, Jana got an email First ,from Mary at Romantic Country........and when she told me "We" the store, might get published, we screeched and did a "high five"laughed and smiled! Then, a couple of weeks later, I got an email from Mary. It seemed TOO Good to be true that there was the potential that we'd both be published. And frankly, I think we held our collective breaths after submitting images and Emails, to see, Who/What would get Published.
Long story short,,,,,,,,as previously mentioned, I got published,,,,,,and Joyworks did too! Ackkk!
I just Can't WAIT to see it in Print! Darn it Annie, (Ms. Fiona) I'd fly down to Texas tomorrow and pick one off YOUR newstand if I didn't have to work! But I cannot think of ANYONE I'd rather be "in Print with" than you, my Joywork family and oh Yeah! I just LOVE "Castle's in the Air!" Whom apparently I "Share" a page with! My NEXT dream, would to be to hold a Class there!
Have a GOOD Weekend All,,,,,,And the Happiest of New Years!
Love, Hugs and an OH so Grateful "Bus" on the Cheek to all of YOU and Yours!
