My Name in Print!

Yesterday I received my complimentary copy of Studios and was pleasantly surprised to see I have an entire page! I thought it would probably be just one small picture since I'm not a big name in the art world....



Those are HB's fingers holding the page. I think he's more excited about this than I am!!

And just because we're on the subject of magazines/books I thought I'd share with you a montage of photos I recently took of some of the books in my studio....yes, I said some of my books! These are all artsy/crafty books....



I made a pact with myself this year that I wouldn't buy too many books. So far I've bought three new books. I'm not doing so good with my pact!

  2. Congratulations, Janet...this is wonderful for you. I think I may have to go get this issue (I don't always because of the price).
    Now I don't feel so bad about all of my art books...I think you have as many as I have.
    Hugs,
    Janet

  7. OMG! So exciting. I was even going to buy the issue at JoAnn's, but of course they had their 'zines 10% off so I couldn't use a 40 off coupon. I did look at your page though, it's great. Congrats! I love the photos of so many of your books. I'm doing good...8 whole days into Feb. and I haven't made one purchase.

  15. wow, congrats!!! that is great and how exciting. I have lots of art books too, ..I use to belong to NOrth Light but now I like to look in thrift stores. I also started several years ago buying children's books to study the various types of illustrations. I had so many in one room I would have had to move out...I ended up giving them all to a thrift store..and now I miss them.

  20. I am so proud of you, this is very special. All the work you and Mr. H put into this area just for you, he is probably feeling very good about his little wife and her art. I just must go out and by the Magazine before they are all gone.
    And I looked at all your posts that I have missed, you have been busy, and that means you are happy.
    Love, Mary

  21. How exciting (name in print)! :D

    Is there such a thing as too many books? I should probably make that pact with myself. But since I am on a yarn diet this year, I think I'll give myself a break on the book thing. ;)
