I walked in the house today and saw the package sitting on the counter. There it was, the NEW publication from Somerset Studios, "Haute Handbags". Before I even ripped open the package I began my "Happy Dance" around the house. I was totally making a fool out of myself, while my boys both yelled, "MOM...stop that, you're embarrassing us!" I didn't care.
I knew somewhere in the magazine was a photo of the purse I created. I had submitted the purse over one year ago and had forgotten about it. About five months ago I had received and email letting me know that my purse was going to be featured in the upcoming Fall issue of Haute Handbags. Quickly flipping the pages of the magazine, I found my purse on page 139.
I had gotten the wonderful image from Mind Wide Open during one of their monthly challanges. I just loved the sweet photo.It's so exciting to see the photo and my name in print. Living in a house with all men, they cannot relate to me and how excited I got over the photo of the purse. I wanted to share it with all of you who love to create and enjoy "girly things". So I hope you understand my joy.
It is a beautiful magazine. It will be sold starting October 1st. Borders, Joann Fabrics and Michaels all sell the magazine. If you love purses and you love to create, this is definitely for you.
