"Gatherings" magazine feature!



i am just tickled pink to announce
 that i am a featured artist in the spring issue of


 "This issue is chock full of engaging articles sure to ignite your creative juices for Spring crafting, baking, decorating, celebrating and shopping. Our Spring issue- Artists + Artisans is a salute to creative makers who inspire these pages .Featuring a special guest post by Jen O’Connor of Earth Angels Studios, book reviews, color trends and much more!"

my friend Heather Spriggs Thompson,
 is the creative genius behind this wonderful magazine...we met through blogland and turns out she lives just a few miles away....small world isn't it!?
(yep, that's me sitting there in my living room...not wanting to have my picture taken...unwashed hair and all) 

and there's my humble abode...
in a magazine!

what really blows me away (to tears even), is the glowing and beautifully written script that Heather has added.
double yay!

and there's my messy studio and some of my paintings.
Heather made it all look so good!

 after this terribly long and cold winter, 
this gorgeous magazine, full of fresh spring-like images,
 will definitely put you in the mood for warmer weather,
green grass, flowers blooming and curtains softly blowing through the open windows...
remember those days?

Erin - this is terrific news. I am going to have to get a copy of this special magazine - hope they have it around here at one of our local bookstores. I don't think I have ever seen it but Barnes and Noble has a great selection of publications. You look so good sitting in your lovely home. Have a great day dear.
