Some really awesome stuff.

I have a couple of really exciting things that I've been meaning to blog about forever but for whatever reason haven't gotten around to it...! Pure craziness I tell ya, because this stuff is too cool for words!! First of all, this photo. A couple Saturdays ago I got to meet one of my favorite stampers on the entire planet, Lydia of Understand Blue!!! Surely you know Lydia - she's funny, talented, passionate about animals, best friends with Martha Stewart, loves to turn junk into gems, can teach you a ton, tweets in the name of Splitcoast, aaaaaand is a super duper stamper and all-around wonderful gal. She lives right here in the same city as me and I've been wanting to meet her forever. So glad I was finally able to! I even got to go to her house and make some cards! Yay! (which I was going to show you too and never got around to photographing - now I remember why I haven't posted before now!) So that was Exciting Thing #1. Are you ready for Exciting Thing #2?? I got an email last week from a certain stamping magazine letting me know they are going to publish one of my cards!!!!!! EEEEEEEEK!! I can't believe it. It was actually the first thing I've ever submitted. It took me about a hundred years to get up the nerve to send something in. And they liked it. Wow. The rotten part though - it won't actually hit the newstands until NEXT SUMMER!! So, that's all I can tell you for now. And I have to sit here with my fingers crossed for an entire year hoping that they don't change their minds. Ack. So those are my exciting tidbits. Don't hate me because I'm awesome. HA! :-)
