Doing the Happy Dance!!

This spring I was surprised with a lovely email from Jennifer Jackson, the Assistant Senior Managing Editor for Stampington and Company, the publisher of somerset studio.  Jennifer had come across my blog and loved my "Countdown to Christmas" project, as  I read the email, I could hardly believe my eyes, she was asking me if I would submit my project for publication into the Holidays and Celebrations magazine.  Are you kidding me, Of Course I would!!! I think at this point I was screeching and doing the happy dance! Somerset magazines, in my opinion,  are one of the most beautiful magazines on the market, filled with fabulous mixed media projects created by some very talented artists!!  And she was asking me for one of my projects, how thrilling is that!!  The 2011 issue was released on September 1 and it is more fabulous than I thought it would be, filled with delightful holiday projects for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day and Birthdays.


My project has a 5 page spread, YES that is 5 whole pages,  Showcasing some of my favorite tags.


And yes I am still doing the happy dance!!  Thank you so much for this opportunity Jennifer!!

hello susan...
i came here to say hi after reading your 5 page showcase in somerset's holidays and celebrations. then when i saw your photo on your blog i said "hey...i know her"...only i am not sure where in all my blogging and creative travels i have seen your fact before. well, anyway, it was a pleasure to see your gorgeous countdown to christmas. and since i am such a slave to eye candy, it would be lovely to see even more of your tags.
congratulations on such beautiful work.
