On The Cover!

Update: You can read the article here.
Some time ago, I was approached by the lovely Managing Editor of Artful Blogging, Jennifer Jackson, who gave me the opportunity of being featured in their stunning magazine.
I obviously accepted, but I was not prepared to such an amazing feature! And... my heart skipped a couple of beats when I spotted my coffee-stained clothespins on the cover!

Jennifer chose fabulous photographs to sum me up-  I couldn't have done it better myself ! If you are reading... thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jennifer! You made me smile, oh, SO BIG. Love working with the team at Stampington- such a great experience each and every time. 

Blogging surely is a powerful tool, it challenges me to fly higher... If you want to spread your wings, I cannot encourage you enough to start your own online journal, and to be part of this amazing community of kindred spirits. 
I put my heart into this article, hope you'll have the chance to read it.

And I meant to say, in the last page of the magazine, another Stampington publication I simply adore, Green Craft, is advertised with the feature of my woolen wreaths (wink wink).

Hope your week is off to a great start, too!
