I decided to work on being published a few months ago (big dream since I started scrapbooking) and this morning in my inbox I had a email from Canadian Scrapbooker requesting my layout!!!!! My first time being published!!!! I am so happy..... *** insert here: jumping up and down***!!!! They needed layouts with a "postage theme" and I sent one that I just recently did in April. I will be able to share with you in December which one it is, because it was removed this morning from my gallery and my blog post.
Thanks to all my supporters that were pushing me to send my work Katie, Rach, Mellisa, Tanya, Barb, Jenn, Pattie and so many others!
Have a happy WEDNESDAY!!!!
I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
