My second publication!!

Got some publication Mojo again!!

It is very exciting and rewarding 
to have your work appreciated and published. 
My "Ophelia Cuff" is pictured on page 39 
of the January/February Issue of Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine.  

I was one of 5 finalists 
in the Mixed Media Jewelry Category 
of the Artisan 2012 Contest!
Yes this makes me 
"Do a Little Dance"! 
I was not told which piece was chosen for the publication 
which added a little surprise for me when I received it in the mail. 
You can read more about the making of my Cuff  HERE  + HERE.
I took a little breather from everything 
except my family during the holidays, 
it just felt like a good time to pause, rest and regroup.
Now I feel rejuvenated and ready to press on.
My goal for this year is to send in more submissions 
and keep creating in all the medias I love. 
I have been thinking about trying out different venues 
for selling my work.  
I would love input from any of you, 
willing to share your experiences with other sites. 
Email me if you don't want to comment (outloud) below. 
January 10th will be  
"My Muse's" 2nd year anniversary.
The journey began on Jan 10th 2010 
when I dared to reach out into cyber space 
and share my life and art with 
"I didn't know who"
having 115 fabulous followers and friends today.
Because of this blog 
I have connected with so many talented and generous artists 
have found many great opportunities and sources of inspiration
I could go on and on but I will spare you.
