Cover Model

I am totally doing back flips right now. Who am I kidding, I was never able to do a back flip, even when I was cheerleader. But I am really really really excited right now!!

Quick... go check out www.stepbystepbeads.com ... I'll wait here.

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT!?!?! I got the cover!! YOO HOOO!!! I had no idea. The advertising manager sent me an email asking if I would like info on advertising with Interweave magazines, along with a "Congratulations on getting the cover...". I thought, "cover, what cover?" I pulled up the site and there it was!! The editor never told me. I think it is almost better that way, I didn't realize how much I love surprises.

While you are at the site, scroll down just a bit... did you see? YEP, an exclusive online featured step-by-step project. Check it out HERE. It is all about how I make my different discs and bubble beads. If you lampwork... have fun with it!!! If you don't... it is still fun to see.

I am off to spend the rest of the evening and most of tomorrow floating on cloud nine!

Congratulations! That piece is every bead magazine's dream. Gorgeous and very colorful. I bet they use it for lots of promotional stuff too! And what a great surprise! You deserve it!

Kerry said...

Thank you soo soo much everyone!!

Yep, I am still floating :) Getting hard to do with the daily stresses of life sneaking back in, but I just think of the cover and float right back up again.

To answer questions ~
Anne, YES, I will autograph your copy... I feel silly doing it, but it wouldn't be the first time. I am almost getting used to it, lol.

Kathy, SBS Wire came otu a few weeks ago. It is at JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels, grocery stores... etc... look for it. It should be there.
