Last Spring, I submitted a proposal to the magazine ClothPaperScissors for the mom/baby book that I had made for my great-granddaughter, Ava Rose. I did not hear back from them until January of this year!
That is when they asked me to write a how-to article, make some samples and send them, along with the original book, to them by the first part of February! Heck ya', I can do that.
I've been dying to see the finished product ever since and, finally, it arrived yesterday. I was not disappointed.
I'll show you the magazine pages first. You really can't read them, but you get the idea........
I don't know if I'm more excited about the by-line or my first paycheck as a writer! In any case, I'm pretty excited.
Here is the book cover and a few of the pages that were not shown in the article.
Miss Ava Rose....the main character in this book!
These are fun, labor of love kind of books and the third one I've made for some very special little girls.
Before I forget.....the whole magazine is filled with great book and journal making ideas. I believe you can find them for sale at places like Barnes and Noble but, mostly, they are sold on-line through Intererweave Store HERE! There is a digital and a print version of the magazine available and they cost $14.95.
If, you have submitted something to a magazine and not ever heard back from them....don't give up! Keep submitting, one day it will be just what they were looking for.
