BIG news!

I have just been bursting at the seams with excitement since early this morning.

I did my usual morning email check to see if the hubby sent me anything overnight.  I do this right after I turn the alarm off and flip the light on.  Before I get out of bed... so I'm not exactly coherent at this point of the morning and I kind of halfway read a few emails.

Good thing I am in the habit of going back through those emails and making sure I didn't miss anything or I would've been really upset because....  

I'm being PUBLISHED!  In the March 2012 issue of CARDS magazine.   I've had it on my "Things to Accomplish" list for a really long time but never got around to actual submit anything.  Well I got a wild hair one afternoon and decided to make something to submit.  I did, then almost chickened out about sending it but my very encouraging husband told me to go for it.  So I did.  My first time ever sending something for submission.  And I didn't think twice about it after I sent it because I figured there was NO way that the very first card I ever submitted would be picked up.  But guess what?!  It was!!

Wish I could post a photo of the card, but if I already had posted it, I would've had to remove it, so that's that. Would be really cool because then I could've made a cute little "Removed for Publication" graphic...next time I suppose :-).   But I promise that as soon as it comes out I'll share it.

I've been busy tonight getting everything all typed up according to their requirements and ready to mail out because they need to receive it by next Tuesday.  I've had a little bounce in my step all day.

So super excited!!!
