Well, I've had a good day, if you don't count an hour's worth of ironing!
I bought a cute new summer/spring sweater at a local boutique, received my order from Scarlett Lime, in the mail, and here it sits on my crowded work table.
But, this was the big surprise.......also, in today's mail was my newest issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and here is why I was surprised....
In early 2010, I e-mailed Cloth, Paper, Scissors to ask permission to use the photo of a dog they had in one of their ads. Which, they promptly gave me. I did the collage, showed it at the art center I belong to and brought it home and hung it on the wall. End of story!
Until a couple months ago, I got to thinking I should e-mail them a photo of the piece I did using their dog picture and send a little thank you, which I did.
So, I'm thumbing through my new magazine and what should appear on page 8?
My art work and letter! Here is the photo of my original art.......
I had been inspired by a CPS article written by Lydia Bee to try the dog collage after I had done this collage of our cat. Here's that piece.
No matter what....it is a pretty big thrill to see your work in print, I was pleased and excited. I have, also, had another photo in CPS. It was of a piece of jewelry I made when I participated in a reader challenge "Pendant Swap".
Thanks Cloth, Paper, Scissors for the use of the photo and for publishing a your inspiring magazine. I've gotten some great ideas from you!
Now, I'm off to join my friends at Julia's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and share my messy desk and exciting day with them.
