published in this month's Somerset Studio(!!), a giveaway + getting back to basics

I just got my mail and I found this right here!!! I have a piece of mail art published in this month's Somerset Studio!!!! Am I dreaming??? The funny thing is, I just picked up a copy of the magazine a few days ago but hadn't got around to reading it yet. I am still reading Where Women Create. I take my sweet time reading my fave mags..I savor every single word and article (sometimes 2 or 3 times)...and google all the artists and contributors. It's like a mini vacation for me. Seriously. Anyhoo!!!

So I furiously started looking for a piece of my art...and here it is!!!
Thank you Somerset!!! Thank you thank you thank you
What a magical way to start off the year!!
And since I now have two brand new copies of the mag. (I received a complimentary one from Somerset)...I would like to spread the goodness and give one away. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment of one of your fave. quotes! I am looking for a few inspiring quotes to post up in my studio:)
 **And FB users can leave a comment on my page and I will include them in my drawing...sometime next week.

(almost 3!!)
All of our stuff arrives here tomorrow morning so we are going to be busy bees over here unpacking and trying to get settled in. I decided that I wasn't going to go crazy trying to do too much all at once...Tara's room is the #1 priority ...and then ...slowly, slowly...everything else will come together. With Tara's birthday coming up at the end of this month (she turns 3!!) I realise more and more that I need + want to slow down and get back to basics. Before I know it...these years will slip away. We are pretty excited planning  her birthday...she wants everything Dora,  a chocolate cake and pizza afterwards, thank you very much!! 
I am taking a few days off all things computer... but will be back here early next week ...sometime. Have a great weekend!! xxx

Congratulations again! I love this quote from Mary Oliver:

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

Um.... hate to say I told you so.... but I think I said it was just the beginning... Off you go!! Super exciting!!

Here's a quote I like (I have so many!):

“Creativity is work of the heart, unrelated to the economy of our ordinary lives. It is not about ego, not about money or success or failure. It is a calling from spirit, a chance at one of life’s powerful experiences, to make something whole from the pieces of our lives.” Jan Phillips

Good luck with the unpacking.... one step at a time....

p.s. mine is "whisper yellow" by Behr 8)

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson (always my favorite quote)
Congrats again friend!

It seems you are on the right path to seeing all your dreams come true & I'm so happy for all your success. By the way, I saw that in the new magazine while browsing and nearly sent you a phone pic but I assumed you already knew about it :). Congrats!!'
