Just About To Bust My Buttons!!

If I sound a little giddy...
it's only because I AM!

So, I told you a couple of months
ago, that SOMERSET LIFE was
going to use one of my creations
in their next issue...what a long
wait it's has been!

For months I have been looking at
this in my bedroom...so naked and
switch plateless!
But it was worth it to see this in
Somerset Life!!!

I never really thought, as I was gluing
ten million little buttons to a switch
plate, that it would end up in a magazine!
And as if that wasn't fun enough!!!!!
I had absolutely no idea that they were
using another one of my ideas until I
was holding the magazine in my hot
little hands!

My pink teapot! Now that was a surprise!
I know so many of you have been in so
many magazines that this kind of thing
is sort of old hat for you...but little 'ol
me???? HOLY COW! It's amazing!

I truly promise that if it should ever
happen again, I will not be such a
doofus! I just had to get this out of
my system!
Ok, I am done...I will go pour cold
water on myself! Wait, just one more,


  1. Congratulations! I haven't been able to find the latest Somerset magazine around here yet. I'm still looking and when I find one, I'll say a little hooray for you.

    Great ideas! I should try to make my own button switchplate too. Thanks for the ideas!


  2. Congratulations, very cool, you should be thrilled.
    Hugs, Diane

  29. wooooooohoooooooo! way to go! I am so glad to see your beauties published! you soooo deserve this!

  30. So much new news in such a short time. You probably don't remember me from My thoughts and creations ? I have a new blog of a few months now, and am trying to remember everyone's name from before.

    Your blog is just lovely. Love your colors, and content. The cork idea is so clever !
    Stop over and see me Memories at the Lake anytime. They only problem I have is no one can find me. It has to do with the feeds and right now I am struggling to remember before. Seems like it wasn't this complicated.
    Anyway, just a Hi to you and glad I tripped over you by accident. Small world ?


love to hear from you! ;}
