Removed for Publication...

Honestly, I thought I would never put these words on my blog. But today I did just that. I'm so excited to share that a magazine requested some of my cards for a future (April 2010) publication. I am beyond excited. For YEARS I have submitted with no response. I've even vented here before about being frustrated and doubting my creativity. I know that I have many readers who are stars in this industry and may think I am silly for being so excited :) .....but I truly am giddy. (It was also nice to receive the news last night...on my hubby's birthday. He said it was his best birthday present ever. Isn't he sweet?)

Getting published was a huge personal goal of mine and it feels so good to see it happening. It is also a good time to give a shout out to Laura. For not only being a great source of information about being published but telling me to keep submitting. Thanks Laura. :)

Okay, off to mail my cards in. Just had to share the big news with my blog friends!
