One day Country Woman Magazine searched high and lo and found this little junkin’ Canadian in the middle of a tiny town with one 3 way stop. Isn’t the www one amazing ride?!
And then they offered me a challenge.
This is a photo of a home inside a barn. They challenged me to share my hackfest ways on how I’d achieve the look of that room if I were to emulate it.
How fun is that?!
I figured I’d do a writeup with those funky arrows and stuff, and my headshot may be somewhere on the page. Maybe.
And then I got THIS. EEP!
That’s ME!! BIG! 🙂
What a fun writeup this was! Thanks so much Country Woman Magazine, for the fun opportunity!
( I still can’t believe my picture is that BIG.)
Guys, this never ever EVER gets old. It is such a complete honour to be in print. Who knew scrounging around on the curb to find junk would lead to features and opportunities such as this?
“Not I!”, said the little junker in the little town with one 3 way stop.
But I’m thrilled Country Woman Magazine thought otherwise!
My other magazine features are HERE.
Disclosure: Country Woman Magazine did not compensate me to write this blog post. I just wanted to. Because this is really thrilling!
