One World, eh?

I know ... it really has been about 100 years since I have posted. I am amazed that this much time has actually passed ... life's been ... happening, but I find myself missing all the creative souls I have encountered here on blogger more and more and simply have to jump back in ... without any further ado ...

did you know?

I've been published!

such a fluke of a thing, but I must say that I am absolutely humbled by this & thrilled to be featured. Do you remember this:

This is the Jan/Feb 2010 Issue
(click the above image to be directed to their website)

someone I adore wrote the beautiful article ... and on the second spread (three pages!!) my offering is featured in the top right corner ... wait ... let me make this a little easier:

Above: Pages 74 & 75

Above: Pages 76 & 77

Above: Pages 78 & 79

Above: Detail of my submission for the effort

I have tons of blogs to catch up on, so without

... much ...

further ado, I'm off!

ps - thank you to everyone that kept checking in and making sure that I was still breathing ... you made a big difference.

pps - did you realize it's time for:

me, TOO!!

much love to all, ~M~

Wow...congrats on being published! It is impossible to find Somerset Studio here, but my daughter always gets the newest issue in Toronto - I will have to scoff her's!

I'm looking forward to OWOH too! This will be my first year for it.

Yay! you are breathing! Of course you are, and of course you would be published! Wonderful. That's so great!

Please don't think "stalker!" but I actually was trying to find out if you were ok from other bloggers cause I have your PIF to send you.

THanks for being alive. Can I still send it?
