Sweet News

I spent quite a while this evening on a project that just didn’t go the way that I had hoped.  No worries, I’ve changed it but it’s better left for me to approach again tomorrow.  In the mean time I thought I would share some news. 

In a round about way, I’ve been published!   For me it’s a first and I’ve been so tickled but didn’t know exactly how to share the information without, well . . . seeming to brag.  So initially I decided to let it go and bask in the praise of family and close friends.  Someone I admire immensely reasoned with me that it really is okay to share, it’s always good to toot your own horn a little bit.   Okay, hard for me to do but toot, toot, toot!  

I’m tickled that many of the readers here emailed me to say they had seen this picture in the magazine and remembered the tutorial from my blog.  Curious?  Have a look in the May/June edition of Papercrafts Magazine on page 69.    I’ve had many emails asking  where to find the project tutorial on my blog so here’s a picture and a link for new readers. I promise in the not too distant future I will create a tutorial page for the blog to make finding these things far simpler).

Spellbinders Ruffled Flower Medallion Tutorial




Now, changing horses a little bit – I wanted to make sure you know about some awesome Blog Candy being given way by JustRite Stampers.  They passed 250,000 hits and are celebrating in a big way.  The more people that leave a comment at their website, the more prizes they are giving away.  They started with one set of prizes and have already had to add on due to the number of people jumping in for a chance to win – be sure you jump in on this opportunity.  You have until Friday, March 27th at midnight to enter. 

Good luck, and keep checking back with me – I still have some celebrating to do myself before the end of the month!

  • Susan BugalskiMarch 27, 2009 - 7:15 am

    First of all, I thought it was funny that you didn’t like something you had been working on. On a bad day you create far better work than some I’ve seen. No offense to any one in particular but as I’ve said before, your work is beyond…Secondly, congratulations on being published. I’m somewhat surprised you hadn’t been previously. Funny that someone saw the issue and knew that it was yours immediately. I think I could too. Thirdly, I personally think there is a difference between bragging and tooting your own horn. You would never brag but go ahead and toot away.


  • Faye WebbMarch 27, 2009 - 7:17 am

    You should be published-everything you do should be. Maybe thsiis comething we should pray about-a book full of your projects with toturials. I would be the first to buy one!!!

  • JenMarch 27, 2009 - 7:39 am

    Congrats Becca! I can’t believe you haven’t been published before! I’m so happy for you. And no, you’re not bragging. Everyone that I know of that gets published mentions it so the followers can all go check you out in print and say, “Hey! I know her!” (well, you know what I mean.)

    Awesome job lady! :o)ReplyCancel

  • UrsulaMarch 27, 2009 - 7:44 am

    Congratulations Becca!!! This is awesome news, and why not toot your own horn about it, you most certainly deserve it! With all the wonderful, creative and amazing projects you have created I am surprised that you have not been published before now. So next time toot away loudly and be proud, you are a very gifted lady!!!ReplyCancel

    Congratulations, Becca, on your good news. You do such beautiful work, it’s really time that more people got to see it. You’re always an inspiration. I have a question. On the faith card, where is the wheat image from? I didn’t see it anywhere in that Flourishes set. Did I miss it? Thanks so much for sharing all your great ideas.ReplyCancel

  • BeckyMarch 27, 2009 - 8:27 am

    Way to go girl. What an honor to be published. I imagine the only reason you haven’t been before is because you never sent one in to be published or they would have jumped on it. Your work is inspiring and someday I hope to be able to be just a tiny bit like you, altho at my age , that is probably impossible..ReplyCancel

  • Teri FrankMarch 27, 2009 - 8:28 am

    I agree with a previous comment, you should have your own magazine! Your style is elegant and sophisticated – If only I had as much talent as you do just in your little finger, I’d be happy. Congrats to well deserved recognition!

  • Elaine AllenMarch 27, 2009 - 8:33 am

    YEAH Becca!!! Congratulations and there is nothing wrong in a little bragging. Your work is above stellar and you should pat yourself on the back every once in a while. After all, you would do it for someone else, why not yourself. We all know how great you are – I mean you, not just your work. It’s about time the rest of the world knew also.

    Hi Becca! I meant to post a comment earlier about your featured ad. I was reading my PaperCrafts mag and I looked at the ad and went “That’s Becca’s project from the blog hop reveal!” I was so surprised I went and showed my mom and said “I follow her blog and I can always pick her projects out any where!”. Love your work and congrats!ReplyCancel
