My Exciting News of the Day

Robin made a post to the BJP blogs today about a message she received from Sue Cordes, a writer for Australia's Creative Beading magazine.  She is going to be writing an article on the BJP and was looking for photos from this year's project.  I decided what the heck and went out on a limb and submitted two of my pics for her consideration.  Well, she emailed me back and said that she is "blown away" by my work (my head is swelling!) and she is going to use both pics along with my name in her article!  It's going to be published in August, barring any schedule changes.  I can't tell you how excited I am about this.  This may be old hat to some of the beaders out there, but this is new territory for me, and I'm floating right now.  Here are the two projects I submitted...
January's "Disconnected"
February's "Love Blossoms"


Anyways, I just wanted to share with all of you.  Have beady happy day!
