What makes a day go from ordinary to
WONDERFUL??

Well, I'll just tell you ~ it's when your little ten year old runs to get the mail and has THIS in his hands!!!! My heart leapt! I couldn't believe it was finally REAL . . . my little shoes are in this AMAZING magazine.

Somerset Life doesn't even begin to fit into the category of magazine. It is a book of pure creative energy, I turned the pages ever-so-slowly so as not to miss one. single. beautiful. tidbit. It is truly a publication about infusing creativity and beauty into each and every part of your life ~ as you surround yourself with these things and you're bound to feed your creative soul.

What an honor and priviledge to have my work and article inside this beautiful publication. Right beside Sandra Evertson, no less. Unbelieveable.

Thank you all so very much for always cheering me on, encouraging me and giving me the confidence on this little blog to create my artwork. You feed my creative soul ~








A few glimpses of the other features, this is Sandra's! Aren't these tags GORGEOUS??



I know my work didn't make the cover, but that's just fine with me. What an honor to even be considered!!! The icing on the cake today was getting to the back and seeing my little ornaments featured for the ad for the fall issue!!! My goodness ~ I'm so very thankful for these blessings!!

I hope I'm not wearing you out with this magazine news . . . but you girls are why I'm IN these magazines!!! You're my sweet friends and I love sharing my news with you!!

Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday! xxoo, Dawn

ps. Somerset Life should be in bookstores and craft stores around July 1st!

Oh Dawn! The awaited day has arrived! These kind of JOYS call for a celebration!! I think I speak for everyone in Blogland when I say that we all feel giddy with excitement when we see a blog friend's work arrive on the published pages of a magazine, book, etc. Hence, no need to ever be concerned with wearing us out. In fact, the opposite is true. It lifts us all up!

What a fun experience for your whole family as it feels to me as a reader that you have their devoted, loving support!

Dawn,
This is wonderful news to share, I would be so proud, let us be happy with you.
Somerset Magazines (all of them) are some of the best. We were on vacation and I left about 4 of them somewhere. I'm sick on losing them.
Can't wait to get this one.
Have a Blessed Day,
Bonnie

Congratulations on the article Dawn. I have purchased Somerset Life in the past and even though they aren't cheap they are well worth the price. I read them over and over. I will have to look for that issue. All the publications are great.
