I’ve been keeping a secret from you.

Yes, I’ve been keeping a secret from you.  Why? I was afraid that if I mentioned it, I would jinx it and it wouldn’t happen. Superstitious much? OK, what am I talking about?  This:

Last August I received an email from the editor of Art Journaling Magazine by Summerset Studio asking if I would like to submit my journal for consideration for publication in their magazine.  You can imagine just how fast I said ‘Yes, I’d love to’, packed up my Moleskine, and shipped it off. It’s been agonizing waiting to hear (or see) if it was going to be used in the Winter issue….. Yesterday I finally heard.


I got a copy of the magazine in the mail yesterday. Here is the cover:


and there, the Gallery, were my journal pages.


Published I have been floating on air since I saw it. My husband just giggles at my perpetual smile.

To see these journal pages close up:

  5. So totally excited for you, Linda! That's happened to another friend of mine this year, Paula. And you two have something in common: you journal consistently, like brushing your teeth. I think there is a little something to that. DON'T STOP! heeheeheehee So PROUD of you! M-whahhh. Hey, email me, I need your address, almost forgot, and if I had it I forgot where I filed it...sigh. ;-))
