Is This a Dream?

Are you kidding me? It's been so hard trying to keep this in. I remember when I got the email from Lisa Oceandreamer regarding this article. I was being considered for publication in Artful Blogging for being part of the One World One Heart giveaway. I read the email around 10:30PM & had to go wake my hubby up to tell him.

Shortly after I sent my link for consideration, I got an email from the editor, Stacy Dumoski, saying she wanted to take part of my blog entry regarding Artful Flogging (Yes flogging. Read the pic above to take a look at the link) Then a few weeks ago, she emailed me to ask me for my mailing address so I could receive my complementary copy. I still have that email in my inbox. :)Monday I went to the mail box & was completely stunned. I just wasn't expecting it already.

I just about teared up. It's been a dream of mine to get published. I'm still working on avenues to make my business work & well, being published is free marketing. I wasn't even trying to get in & it just fell in my lap. I'm so very blessed for all the opportunities that have come my way the last 2 years regarding my business. I still have this crazy notion in my head that this is going to work. I want my art to be my job. There's nothing else I want to do.

Fabulous news, Nerissa! I'm so excited for you and I bet you are jumping for joy! I will have to look for this issue at the craft store. "flogging"?, that's funny :-)

Oh Nerissa! I'm absolutely ecstatic for you! Congratulations!

Now, go run out to Michaels & buy yourself a pretty frame & hang a copy of that baby in your studio!

Congratulations Nerissa!!! Your jewelry is beautiful and I am thrilled that you received some recognition for it. It is so neat to see something of yours in print, isn't it? Like being a kid again - it touches something deep inside :~) Hoping it brings you lots of new faces to enjoy your art!

Congratulations Nerissa!
What a great feeling to be reconized. Sometimes I think thats all most artists want we would do our work for free if only it were appreciated and loved. but getting paid is a good thing too.

Congrats Nerissa,
That's great to be chosen, I submitted my pics too but alas to no avail, so kudos to you! It is so exciting for you! I loved your piece from One World One Heart and hoped I would win it but no luck there either! LOL Maybe next year!
