Did I mention I was published!!

I just cannot tell you how excited I was when I received an e-mail a while back from Jana Holstein of Somerset Digital Studio to tell me that they would be adding one of my pieces of artwork to the Spring issue.  To say that I was over the moon was an understatement and it was all thanks to the encouragement of Dawn over at The Feathered Nest.  Dawn is such an inspiration to so many people, she always takes the time out of her busy life to send a personal message of love, and is like the guardian angel of blogland!  She wrote to me over a year ago and suggested that I try submitting some of my digital work to Somerset.  I was very hesitant at first as I always felt that I was not 'good enough' as I was self taught and knew nothing about PSI and layer masks (still don't actually!).  But then I decided 'why not?'  What's the worst that can happen?  And look what did happen!!!  See, anything is possible, you just need a bit of a prod, belief in yourself and the guidance of an angel in disguise!  So thank you Dawn and thank you Somerset for making one of my dreams come true!

And on another note...
We, at last, had a beautiful day here in northern Va.  It was chilly but sunny for the first day of Spring.  I managed to clean all of my flower beds, put on new topsoil and wood chips and start my herb garden.  I hope you all had a Sunday as wonderful as mine!  Happy week ahead!
