May I? In the midst of a gray winter with only pockets of sunshine, I received a lovely envelope in yesterday’s mail. I’ve been keeping this under wraps and now I can share a little of it with you. The envelope contained my complimentary copy of the new spring Studios magazine.
My little studio is one of the featured studios.
Oh. my. goodness.
Yes, Ty Pennington and I are both in the Featured Studios section. In fact, my studio is only a few pages beyond Ty’s really cool new studio. Pretty neat!
Seriously, I am over-the-moon about this wonderful honor. And I have to thank my friend Susan Borgen of The T-Cozy for facilitating it. Susan writes wonderful articles for Studios and she told Cate Coulacos Prato, the Editor of this beautiful magazine, about my space. Before I knew it, I was taking photos, husband was coerced into taking photos of me and I was writing a piece about the creation of my space.
You’ll think it a tad silly but yesterday when the comp copy arrived, Don and I sat down together to open it. And we oohed and aahed and celebrated.
Have you seen this wonderful magazine? It’s published quarterly and is chock-full of fabulous studio spaces with many helpful articles and valuable tips. Studios is bright, colorful and beautifully designed. It’s from Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine and published by Interweave Press. I’ve been a fan for a long time which makes this all the more sweet.
Now, the magazine doesn’t hit the newstands until February 22. If you’d rather avoid the stores, it’s available for pre-order here. So, I’m only going to show you a little tease:
In alphabetical order, there I am, third from the top. And that’s my white basket of fabric in the bottom photo.
I’ll show you more as February 22 draws nearer.
A warm and grateful thank you to Cate and the wonderful staff of Studios and to Susan Borgen. I am thrilled with the layout and the design and the look of the article. I couldn’t be prouder.
