My Studio Article in Print!

Look what came in the mail today:

Yup, 5 glorious pages of my studio looking oh so spiffy in the Summer edition of Cloth Paper Scissors Studios. It’s very exciting! Getting ready to write this post I took a quick look at my long term goals for this year and I can see that I’m doing okay there…although I’ll take a closer look at them in June to help plan out the summer. I am a wee bit panicky about the 3rd of my 3 articles…it’s due 2 weeks from tomorrow, and I’ve got a big show this weekend and lots of kid activities going on. I do keep remembering that I made the original houses under a tight deadline too, so all should be ok!

In some other news, although I’ve been woefully behind on blog reading, I followed a comment from Tara’s post on experiential blogging to a new to me blog  called “Letters from a  Small State” by a writer named Elizabeth Howard. I was amazed to awake 3 days later to a tweet that took me back to her blog to find a poem entitled:

Life is Too Short to Just Wear Black.
Or, An Ode To Candied Fabrics, Who Is Very Busy Quilting, Yet Commented on my Blog Anyway

Please, go read it, I’ll wait here!

OK, are you back? I’m speechless.

And with that…I’ve got class to teach, then lots of things to finish up for the weekend.

Thank you Elizabeth.

om [one moment] meet up In this crazy week I realized that both of these events were indeed, moments to stop and savor. alamodestuff Linda has started a weekly meetup based on taking a moment each week to really notice something as you go about your daily grind life. I need to do this. You may want to too – read more about it here:

  4. Awesome!!! I love your peg board wall by the way. My mom has a “Christmas Closet” for holiday decor. It has two floor to ceiling peg board walls. It’s fabulous.

  5. You’re published!! Congrats!! Your studio is amazing and beautiful and totally deserves to shine in print!! I can’t wait to see it in the magazine! And what a sweet poem dedicated to you!!! That’s so awesome! You’re on a great streak right now. Good luck with your fairs and articles!

  6. What a lovely studio and so organized…would love to see it in the middle of your creative process!!! Congrats and hugs.

  7. I love all the colors in your studio! I swore I wouldn’t buy any more Studio magazines (I get too many ideas and change my own studio around), but I may need to make an exception!

  8. What a great studio; lots better than my spare bedroom lovingly called “the sweatshop”. Maybe someday I’ll have one as nice as yours. Congratulations!

  9. Yes, indeed. Very big savoring moments for you this week! The article is fantastic! Congratulations, again! I’m looking for a copy to purchase today. If I were you, I’d stratigically place several magazines around the house to catch a glimpse now and then. It will make you happy each time you see them! You deserve this!

    I’m a bit behind in my blog reading but can’t wait to see your studio in its “working” form. I saw a tweet btw you and @Waterrose about it yesterday and it made me smile.

  10. You are famous! How very awesome and exciting! 🙂 I also have fallen woefully behind on my blog reading. It’s so bad, my feed reader has given up on me and just says 1000+. It won’t even count anymore I’ve neglected it so long. I will find the time to go back and see what everyone has been blogging about, but I do hate being late to the party. Good luck at your show this weekend, and I’m sure you’ll find the time to get your next article done. 🙂

  11. congratulations! I will have to look for this magazine….

    someday I would love to have a studio. 🙂

  12. WOW ode! what an awesome OM!!!! thanks for sharing Candy. magazine layout/article looks amazing too.

    bon weekend!


    PS – so pleased we’ve kept in touch post ecojotting days 😉

  13. Oh, this is awesomw, congratulations !!! Love your studio and the lovely poem. You had a really great “one moment”.
