I'm really not a secret agent . . .

I sounded a little like I think I'm one in that last post, having a "special assignment". The truth is (I spoke about it the first of the year and it's fine if I tell a little bit) that I submitted artwork to Somerset Life earlier this month and am now writing the article to accompany it! Hopefully it will appear in the Summer issue. I'm already excited about the Spring issue coming out. There's only four a year ~

This truly is not just a magazine. If you've not bought an issue yet, you've really missed out. It's a little more expensive than your typical magazine but I look at it more as a paperback book. There are so many wonderful ideas in these that you'll want to refer to them over and over!

I've worked a lot today on my article, trying to make it not sound too terribly corny and also to not sound like I talk, which is hard because I am who I am, a hick from Georgia! We'll see, maybe they have a great proofreader and will make me sound intelligent and polished!!

This mini composition book is all I could get finished today as I am trying to finish up the article. These little things are the neatest size. I think about 3 1/2" x 4" or so. Perfect to slip into your purse and use to jot down an idea, reminder or special thought. That's why I like to call them "Thought Books". I should have it listed in my Etsy store sometime tomorrow. If you'd like to see the books and other items I have for sale, you can click here to visit my Ecrater store!







See how small this notebook is? I used a little paint bottle as a visual reference for you!
Wishing you a wonderful day ~

Hi Dawn- I have about a dozen of these and never did a thing with them. I was going to make little notebooks for my frinds for christmas. I'm talking 2006!
Good for you for ALWAYS doing the best work.

You are so funny! We love you for who you are and I, for one, hope the article sounds just like you talk! Don't go getting sophisticated on us, now.

I LOVE that magazine. I've bought worn the hide off of this last issue, it's so awesome. Can't wait to see what the summer issue brings, specially since you will be in it.
Love the tiny comp book. I've done the large ones before, but never the small. Great idea.

I love Somerset magazines - most particularly Somerset Life & Artful Blogging, but they all have an incredible amount of great information and ideas. Congratulations on your little project with them! ::Jill

The Bag Lady's Art said...

Congrats on the Somerset publication! It will be a great summer, my articles will be in their Stampers Sampler, June and August-woo-hoo! I'm just finishing up my last six pieces to send off to them. Are you having fun writing? That part kind of intimidates me. I'll bet yours will be wonderful, you have a way with words!
xoxo,
Pam

Miss Sandy said...

Your teeny tiny journals are so sweet! It looks like we have both been busy writing today! Yeah! I actually got some work done today too! I know your article will be just as wonderful as your art work!
