~A Dream Come True~

Yesterday I received an E-mail from 
Jennifer Jackson of Somerset Studio  Telling me that 
A Perfect Melody has been Selected as a Featured SpotLight in the 
Summer 2011 Somerset Studio Gallery Issue! 
This is the First time I have Ever been Published. 
I can't tell you how Grateful I am, 
and how Wonderful it Feels to have your Work, your Love 
being Recognized like this from such an Esteemed Publication.
I think I am a Great Big Silly Marshmallow
Because I found myself Crying!
Well I have to Confess that I cry over Hallmark Card and Even some 
Folgers Coffee Commercials!( You know the one where the Son comes back for Christmas from his Tour of Duty..)
I Know!!I can't Help Myself! Marshmallow!
I created A Perfect Melody While taking
Mary Greens, Collage Coterie Coarse!
I learned Marvelous Techniques from
Mary and Her Most Wonderful Coarse!
Happy Friday Everyone!
Happy Dance! I Am so Excited!

Nothing wrong with crying over such a wonderful reconition.
Your item is so beautiful.
Thanks for all you share.

Jill, congratulations!!! I'll be looking for it! I'm not surprised, talented lady!

I hear you about crying over those sappy commercials. I have a thing that believes all commercials should either be sentimental or make you laugh - quit the noise and hype!

And if it makes you feel any better, I even cry at parades! There's something so AMERICAN about a parade! And that tugs at my heartstrings.

Warm hugs,
