I am so excited!


The reason I am so excited is that I had 3 cards picked up for publication in Paper Creations!  Then I had 4 cards picked up for publication in Just Cards – Valentines/Love Special Issue.  YEAH!!! 

I have been submitting so many cards, and most times hear nothing back.  It’s been a challenge trying to figure out what each magazine might be looking for.  It’s kind of funny though, some of my favourite cards that I thought for sure may be picked up, weren’t.  Urgh….lol, I guess you just have to keep trying! 

It’s the same with Design Teams!  I have tried out for a few big companies, and seem to always make it to the final round, but then they email me  saying I didn’t make the final pick!  This year I am going to just keep trying!  Heck, all’s they can do is say NO! 

I know there are many of you going through exactly the same thing.  Don’t give up though!  Just keep plugging away, and eventually we will get there! lol

Hubby and I were going through some photos last night, and came accross this one of me.  I really don’t like pictures of myself, but he said he loved this one and told me to post it on my blog.  So, here I go!  Urgh, that was painful! lol

Well, off to create and take pictures!  Have a wonderful morning everyone!  :)

Wow, Congratulations, Kim on being published, not once but twice! That's awesome news! :)

I love your photo, I think some of the best photos are when we're unaware it's being taken...candid shots. This one is worthy of framing for sure! You have such a kind heart and you're as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside. I'm proud to call you my friend! :)

Big Hugs,

The picture is great but I know how you feel. I don't think I have even had a pic taken in over a year.
Great job on getting published. Your work is soooo beautiful.
And thanks for the possitive out look on getting published.
I have been wanting to try and haven't even sent anything in. You have refired my desire to try. Cyber Hugs, Robin

Congratulations on your publications!!! I know what you mean about submitting, applying etc. I only submit to my Bella Group for a homepage contest and I hardly get any votes!!! I notice alot of the cards that do get picked are the "busier" cards, so I just might have to get out of my comfort zone! LOL! Also BEAUTIFUL picture, tell your hubby thanks for posting, good for you!!! I am struggling with my own self etc and it is hard! have a great day! Cheers!
