I Did It Again!
I'm so stoked to be published in the August issue of Jewelry Affair! This is so exciting for me, I don't care how old I get, how jaded I become, seeing my art and words in print is pretty cool. This journey all started with a New Year's resolution to work on getting my artwork published in 2015. I know that most resolutions I make never come to be, but I was determined to see this one through.  After meeting the publisher, Natalie Way, of Jewelry Affair Magazine at Glitterfest, where I was a vendor, I decided to take her up on her offer.  It was the best thing I did an am so glad I did.  It's such a quality publication that I have enjoyed for years.  I would comb over each and every page marveling at all of the artisans creativity and originality, knowing that I had it in me one day to achieve these levels of excellence.  Then, as the years rolled by, I started to toy with the idea of actually being published one day.  Friends, peers, family and fellow artists all asked me why I hadn't submitted my work for publication yet, I didn't have a viable answer except for, lazy?  Fast forward to 2015, time to make it happen, and I did. I'm so glad that I took this step and hope to continue submitting my goods for the world to see.  Stay tuned Gang, this is a fun journey that I hope you will all join me on!
