There's a Secret That I Have Been Keeping....But Here It IS!

 So I've been keeping a secret for many of months now.... YIKES, for me that is sooo hard...... But now I can tell!!!???!!?!?!?! 
Hubby and I came home from running a few errors today...mail sitting on the table... Alex had already been home... and what do I see.... I knew right away!!!  I thought it would be a couple of weeks before I would get this.... The latest issue of PRIMS!  It will be on the news stands May 1st!!!  I am just blown away as I see this...speechless... for OLM.. .that takes A LOT!!... So humbled, there are so many wonderful artists profiled in this great magazine!!! How is it possible that 5 of my dolls are part of this?????  Humbled, speechless... See, I really don't consider myself a artist, I don't believe my creations come close to so many other artists and their wonderful talent... Yet, I am blessed to be able to create and to come up with a few of my own idea's from time to time......BUt mostly to everyone that is so willing to give them a home!!! Thank you!!!
 So here starting on page 98 to 102 is 5 OLM original designs...
Including one very near and dear to my heart....LULU... I created her over a year ago in honor of my mom and her battle with colon cancer...LULU is on the right along with Cally, and lil Old Hazel... on the other pages... is Becky, and "the Queen"  any guess who that one is all about????  Speechless... though I will say, it is so cool and a bit surreal to see one's work published in a magazine,  I am blessed! OLM

TheCrankyCrow said...

HUGE congratulations on a very well-deserved honor my friend! (Isn't that twice now???) I told you I would be saying "I knew her back when...." ;o) That layout and photography looks amazing. I managed to get a copy of the issue with Miss Libby in it - now I guess I'll have to track this one down too - for some reason, they don't sell Prims (or prims for that matter either) around here. Enjoy the glory!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I am priviledged to knwo you and own some of your "pieces". I am so darn proud of you and as always, am inspired by you. You really rock...I will have to find out where to buy this magazine and then I can brag to all my friends that I KNOW "that" artist !
