Hooray! I'm Getting Published!

Yesterday I got an email from Somerset Studio - They're featuring a piece I submitted in the upcoming issue of Gallery! Yahoo! My first time!

I had about given up. I mailed the piece in in June and had heard not a word. But they hadn't sent it back yet either. It occured to me a few nights ago that I had never given them my updated contact information and since they're quite adamant that all your things be labeled with said information, I decided I had better email them with the info ASAP. The very next day I got the email with the news.

It's a somewhat awkward piece to take a picture of (wish I'd thought of that issue before I sent it in), so I'm anxious to see how they will put it in print. When I get my issue I will post a picture!

You lucky thing, you! Can't wait to get that issue- I'm sure you can't either! I dream of being published by them, but am sitting on two things now too chicken to package it up, I guess. Love your new header and your Kelli Rae-like work!

Hi, Laurie--Haven't commented for a while. Here are things I have to say:

1) CONGRATS and WELL DONE, on the S.S. acceptance!!! I will be haunting the magazine racks 'til it comes out.

2) The cut paper background is too, too cool...I have trouble achieving depth the way I'd like to; I achieve great depths of muddy water.

3) Love, love Rexy's tree. You could make a Christmas card out of it...

4) HOW do you get so much done? You are giving me a complex, you know. (Forgive me if I ask you that every time I talk to you.)

See ya,
LIisa

Hey, that is AWESOME! Very nicely done, sistah!

Also, would you mind dropping me a line via email? I can't seem to locate your email address and I would like to ask you something directly.

My email is alchemystudios (at) gmail (dot) com. Hope you'll have time to say hello! You're a busy bee!
