This is just so surreal....to see my name in print!
I have often thought about submitting some of my handbags to Somerset Haute Handbags ...but then when I look at what is in the magazine, I get second thoughts about my work. But with a little help from a friend...Kim Caldwell , who happen to be carrying one of my bags at an event, she was approached by non other than Beth Livesay, Managing Editor of Haute Handbags. Beth asked Kim about her bag and Kim told her about me....next thing I know I am emailing Beth pic of my bags and she says "send them all in" OK...so I am thinking maybe one of them will get in the magazine...who knows. But then I get this letter letting me know I am being published in the Spring 2011 edition of Haute Handbags and that ALL % of my bags are be published...and I need to write an article...YIKES!!!!
But it really was a fun experience....Then the magazine comes out and you see your name in print!!!! Very exciting...
One of the bags , which is a new design that I made out of an old grain sack and used an old leather belt as a handle , was purchased by Beth herself. Now what could be better icing on the cake but to have the Managing Editor of Haute Handbags carrying around one of your bags........OMG, I feel like a Celebrity!!!
Thanks Kim for the push...and thank you Beth for making me feel special...
