Last shot of the day and it was remarkable we got anything as it was pretty dark by that time. It looks like I'm kicking my leg up in a pose, but I'm really just keeping my balance. Isaac says this adds to the 50s-postcard-feeling we've got going on here - happy girl in skirt packing licorice-laden picnic into outrageously-fabulous orange truck. Sounds good to me.
This is the parting shot from an 8-page feature in the current Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine. The April/May 2008 issue just hit news stands this week. To help answer questions about the article & to help keep up with all of the new visitors popping in (Hello friends!), I've put together some information about the projects & patterns featured in the article. Here's a link to that info page. And congrats to my talented husband for a beautiful cover!
Home Companion is an amazing magazine. If you've never picked up a copy before, do it! You'll think, "Dang-shoot, I've been missing out!" Then you just might have to track down all of the previous issues & catch up.
There's also a little spot about my blog in the March issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. A few of the editors from the magazine approached me at The Cheesecake Factory while I was in Anaheim a couple of weeks ago. They handed me an issue of the magazine and said," Well, I guess this was fortuitous timing! Congrats on your new scrapbook collection." Odd to be spotted in public, but kinda fun too. And the paper-craft crowd seems just as fabulous as the fabric crowd; cool ladies having all-together too much fun (well, mostly ladies). Oh to get invited on a trip to Italy; it seems paper-crafters know how to go all-out!
