I have an ad in the Nov/Dec 2008 (baby) issue of Creative Needle !!!
This is the cover of the magazine I’m in… (my copy arrived in the mail today!)
Here’s the page I’m on…
(it’s on page 87, the flip-side to ‘Connecting’ on the last page)
here’s my ad up close
Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by one of my favorite magazines back in August to see if I would like to place an add in their magazine! Of coarse I was intrigued, so I called them back to see what it was all about (and how in the world did they find me!!!) I was told that they do searches for people like me, and they think my site is the kind of thing their readers would really enjoy. Then I received an email from Ann Henderson (the actual editor of Creative Needle!) and she said
” I enjoyed seeing your website and blog, especially the photo of your
family. Your girls are beautiful. How fun to sew for them! I also
enjoyed seeing the photo of Bella and Hans. And many thanks for putting
the link to CN on your website.”
I was freaking out (in a good way) because the editor of CN had looked at my stuff and liked it!!! OK. Just to help you understand this… I have been getting this magazine for the past 12 years ever since my big sister Beth taught me to smock my first baby outfit.
So anyway, the moral of this story is that you never know who might be lurking around your blog and what good things may come from it! Thank you to CN for contacting me! I always new I would be rich and famous one day! Well, I’m not exactly rich or famous but it IS exciting to have an ad in a magazine!!!!
So to all of you new readers, Welcome to my little creative spot in the world! Pull up a chair and leave a comment or two letting me know that you have stopped by!
