It all starts with a dream. . .
Just like you, I have many many dreams.
Many of my dreams seem impossible to attain, but I dream them anyway.
Some dreams seem just within reach but I never quite make it, so I keep trying.
And then there are dreams that do come true. When that happens, I am
And yes, one of my many dreams that did come true is being published in a national rubber stamping magazine--not only once, twice, but many many times.
I can still remember the first time I was published. I think I went out and bought every copy of the magazine I could find. I was on Cloud 9 that's for sure!
The surprise and feelings of being so totally overjoyed never goes away! Whenever I get published, my heart does back flips for days!
If you haven't been published yet, I challenge you to not only dream the dream of being published but to live your dream by submitting your creations for consideration. It's scary I know. It's not a good feeling to be rejected. It may seem safer to just not try; I'm with you!!!!
I fight my inner fears all the time; my insecurities get the best of me sometimes but. . . it's okay to feel that way. To me, that's being a normal human being.
What's NOT okay is to give up without even trying. Push your fear aside for just a moment and mail that card to a magazine!!!!
Ready to see my published dreams? (in no particular order!)
I just love these little pigs. They are soooooooo cute-ums don't you think?
It's hard to see but there's green and red Stickles on the tree, of course, I wrapped gold thread around my border piece to add more sparkle to the card. I HATE sanding so I did some Faux Sanding on this card--wiped a white pad over my DCVW cardstock to give the look of sanding without all the mess of real sanding. :}
Here's a photo of my 2-page spread! Too kewl huh?
Here's a better look at the tag.
come back later for more. . .
