My Big Break


The November issue of Country Living Magazine features a wonderful article about Silver Bella, a paper arts extravaganza that I attended last year. It was great to flip through the pages and see some of the fun gals that I had the honor of meeting. I was also delighted to catch a glimpse of myself in one photo as well. And I do mean a glimpse...


Those are my hands in the left side of the frame, cutting away at some paper. The adorable Jeanie of Southern Nest is to my left and Natalea, with the lovely locks, is to my right. You can even catch a gratuitous shot of my bangs in the photo as well. I knew keeping my 80's style do would pay off eventually.

Truth be told, my phone has not stopped ringing since the magazine hit the stands. My services are in demand. I can now join the ranks of other great hand models like George Costanza. Ooh, and speaking of which, I will borrow a page from his book and keep my investments safe...


It's now moisturizer and gloves 24/7... or at least when I'm not at a shoot.

I'll have to go and thumb through my new issue to see that pic. I'm not happy with the cover of the issue though. You know how they show you the two versions they did,and it depends where you live? I want the turkey, that's all I'm saying :(

hahaha I was flipping through that issue today and used all sorts of self control. Now I must buy it and inform Mr. Bunny it's to support a fellow crafter's hand.
