Super Market Magnetic Wall Organizer
I’ll never forget the first time I was published in a magazine.
(Ohmygosh… here it is… hilarious… you have to read THIS)
It wasn’t a project feature, but more like, a blog shout out. As in, ‘check out Funky Junk Interiors.’
I was beyond THRILLED!
And you can bet, when that magazine came out, I scoured every store I frequented, looking for it.
Ladder Side Table
I remember this one clear as day. I felt so GIDDY, I actually had a pen in my purse, ready, you know, in case someone was paging through it, then gasped when they came to my (blog name in text with no pretty project feature.) Wow, right?
I stood in front of that stand, with magazine wide open to ‘my page’, and in a very obvious manner, made sure anyone walking by could spot what I was looking at.
But no one came by.
Hmph. What kind of store is this, anyway?
So I proceeded to open up as many magazines as I could to ‘my page’, setting them back on the stand. I then left the aisle, then hid while peeking back in, to see if I had ‘captured’ anyone’s interest.
No one came down the isle.
Not. A. One.
So I opened a few more for good measure, then left.
You’re welcome, store!
Garden themed crate hanging desk
Giggling at how absurd I was behaving, I was on a high. I mean, my work was printed, and on bookshelves! What’s not to be pumped about?
Over the years, I’ve been published a few times now, and I will say this.
IT NEVER GETS OLD!
This round, my work is in Somerset Home, Autumn 2016, with 3 projects.
Not 1 project.
3 3 3 3 THREE!!!
I was pretty stunned. The ladder shelf is an older project, but the crate desk with the garden stencils, and Super Market magnetic board are newer. And the magnetic board has a full 4 page tutorial on how to use the stencils!
Somerset Home is tricky to find in my region, but I believe book stores carry them. This magazine actually feels more like a published book! The quality and weight really makes a statement.
But you can bet, if it was in any ‘ol grocery store this round…
And naturally, carry a pen, just in case… 🙂
