I've been PUBLISHED!!!!

Last night I arrived home from work, flipped through the mail, and found the new issue of Stampers' Sampler and excitedly opened it. You see, I saw in the "On the Horizons" section of the last issue a card that I submitted, so I figured it was fairly certain that it would be published - a first for me! So very cool to see it in the pages of the magazine. But what I never expected was that a piano hinge book I submitted was also featured!! WOW!!! It has a whole 2 pages!! WOW again!!!!

I thought I would add my photo here of what the outside of the book looks like - these piano hinge books are one of my favorites to make, and for this one I used ceramic tiles covered with alcohol ink for the covers.
