I'm so EXCITED! HUGE News!

I have HUGE news to share with all of you! I got an email yesterday that shocked me, made me quite nervous, and made me stare at it in complete disbelief. I was told, "I am very pleased to inform you that your project, *****, has been accepted for publication in upcoming kids special issue of Paper Crafts magazine!" Can you believe it? I submitted an altered project, and they are going to PUBLISH it in a special issue! I'm so very excited! I need to finish typing up directions, and then I need to mail the directions and the project to them by January 4th! This special kids' issue will be out in June. I've never been published before, and it was one of my goals for 2008 . . . to be in a magazine! I LOVE Paper Crafts magazine! YEAH! I'm so happy!

I'm off today for Starbucks with a girlfriend, lunch with another girlfriend, and then home to organize, clean, and finish up decorating for Christmas! I've been a bit of a blog slacker the last couple of days, but I'll be around to visit you all in the next day or two. Thanks for stopping by!
