WHERE WOMEN CREATE........IT HAS ARRIVED..........

I am beyond excited to share with you all my latest publication. I have been blessed and have had the honor of being published in some really awesome magazines and will forever be grateful to those companies, but I must say that my recent publication in WHERE WOMEN CREATE feb/mar/apr 2015 issue is one of my prized possessions.


I am not sure if all of my readers are familiar with this amazing magazine or not, but it is by far an awesome magazine.......I mean after all the title said's it all:
INSPIRING WORK SPACES OF EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN

....What The....

Now you can see why it is such an honor and why I feel it is one of my prized possessions to have even been considered.
It is a book that talks about the journey it has been or the journey of women leading up to what they feel passionate about. I remember reading the story about Stephanie Aurora Nielson. I was so inspired by her courage in the Oct 2014 issue....and there were many many more that inspired me.

So anyways friends and family I do hope you will pick up a copy (they should be in the stores the first part of Feb 2015). It talks all about my journey to where I am today....A CRAZY CRAFT ADDICT...I mention in the book about coming full circle - while I do feel I have came full circle to finally realizing that I love everything about crafting (especially ribbon :) ).....
I can hardly wait to see what's next.

Before I show you a few pictures from the magazine, I would like to thank the Creator of Where Women Create Jo Packham for choosing me, Mark Lohman for the great photos (he was so easy to work with), Brady Shay and Cynthia Levens from Where Women Create who helped with the article.

Here are a few pictures from the magazine and the beginning of my story:


thanks for stopping by
