Another First

Now that the routine is coming back around, I am ready to dig in and find my artistic flow again!  I have had a summer of craziness, relaxation, travels and adventures!! But all good things must come to an end - which means fresh beginnings for the fall.  And what a way to push into this coming of a new season than to share my first published magazine article!!!!  I am delighted to share (because I have handheld proof now) that I am officially a "free-lance artist and writer"!  Details below;

Magazine:  Quilting Arts Gifts  Holiday 2011-2012
Pages:  68-70  (Yep, 3 page spread!!!)
Article subject:  Rag Ball Ornaments 

My article title and name in the contents!!!

And here it is...
First and second pages

For those not familiar with this publication, Quilting Arts is not your run-of-the-mill sewing magazine!  This magazine covers various fabric techniques and other creative outlets for your artistic endeavors.  I like to think this publication is for those of us who love to go "off roading"  with our sewing supplies and collage elements!  And Quilting Arts Gifts is a publication they do one a year as a holiday issue.  It is packed full of project instructions and also each artist submitted their favorite holiday recipe!

Thank you to the staff at Quilting Arts for this opportunity!!  I am excited to be a part of this year's issue!

attempting and succeeding at new ventures on this artist holiday,


  1. Congratulations! That's so exciting. Looks like a fun project - I'll have to check it out.

  2. So proud of you! I want a whole Christmas tree full :)!!!
