First Publication

For years I've imagined a time when I would feel confident enough to submit my art work to one of the Stampington publications.  I've long admired the artists and pieces in the assorted magazines, collecting retired magazines any time I could find them.  After joining the ICE Resin Creative Team, I found that with opportunity came a lessening of fear.  I thought, well, what do I have to loose.  We all have to start some where, right?!  Well, I collected the courage and mailed my first collection of pieces a year ago, and I'm happy to share my first article was just released in Jewelry Affaire Summer 2013!  It was magical, reading through the article, seeing my pieces printed on rich paper and surrounded by other truly amazing artists.  The emotions are like little butterflies of excitement dancing around inside of me...what a great opportunity.


Now, a year has passed since that first submission, my first article is released, and I'm simply going to challenge myself to continue creating fun pieces that hopefully inspire others, as I am so often inspired.

In honor of this really exciting news, I am holding a sale in my etsy shop for 25% off.  Who doesn't love a sale, right?! So, if you're interested, the coupon code is SUMMER2013!

Good night dear friends & thank you for your tremendous support!  Hugs to All!
