Published in Somerset Life Oct/Nov/Dec 2012

I love receiving my complimentary issue of Stampington magazine when ever you get published.
 In the current issue of Somerset Life, I was excited to have two articles. The following one is titled, "Vintage Button Cards", however, there's a slight problem. They photographed a different project of mine with the story.
The project photographed was my 7-Gypsies portfolio project. The inside is filled with embellished envelopes - but no buttons. This was not my vintage button card kit.
I know mistakes happen, so I apologize for anyone who reads the article and was confused at the corresponding pictures.

My second article was supposed to feature a black and white necklace, but the photographs were for a different necklace that I had made.
So, if you're reading the article and wondered why it doesn't make sense when you look at the pictures - now you know why.

On another note, I had a wonderful time at Art-Is-You in Petaluma. I took a bunch of pictures, so it will take me awhile to go through them and share with you a glimpse of the event...stay tuned.


  1. Connie ~ Congratulations on getting published...what an honor and I know you must be thrilled. It's unfortunate that the wrong pics got printed, but mistakes will happen. The important thing is that you were recognized for your outstanding creativity!
