published!!! (March issue of Somerset Studio)

                                       (March issue of Somerset Studio-that's my article!!!)
I am so super duper excited to share this amazing news with all of you...I have an article published in the March issue of Somerset Studio!!! I haven't had a chance to get a hold of the actual magazine yet (the pic above is a proof). The article is about fueling creativity. Last summer I fell into a horrible creative slump (I wrote about it on my blog)...and no matter what I did, I just couldn't seem to get out of it. So I decided to take some time away from painting and focus on altered books and journaling. I learned so much from that whole experience and I share all of it in this article; I hope you get a chance to read it. We all go through creative slumps...and even though its part of the process, it can be so frustrating!! I can get very depressed + grouchy + sometimes even angry...but it's all fuel for creating. Thank you so much ...Somerset Studio...for publishing my art!!!! I am so very happy and proud of this article...After a super super difficult month ...it's such an absolute joy + I am walking on cloud 9:) Thank you all for sharing in this with me...if I hadn't of started a blog...if I didn't have the support of this amazingly generous community...I really don't believe I would have had the courage to follow my dreams.
