Color makes me happy + I am feeling very HAPPY today!
Earlier this summer I was asked by American Baby Magazine to send them samples of my hand stamped Vintage Baby Silverware to possible be included in an upcoming issue. It was a huge surprise!
Stunned silence followed by little girl screams of excitement ensued!
I obviously sent off some samples & sent up a humble prayer of thankfulness for the opportunity.
Months went by and I did not hear anything back, so I figured I was not chosen. But the other day I received the most amazing email letting me know that my silverware was featured in the September issue of American Baby Magazine!
I am pretty sure I re-read the email a few times before it actually sunk in!
I received a copy in the mail the other day & I was so excited, thankful, happy. proud & humbled. It was a happy day!
Earlier this spring, my i do, me too forks & custom server were also featured in Bella NYC Magazine! (STUNNED)
I will be honest, being featured in a magazine has been a goal of mine for a long time. I feel very blessed that that goal has become a reality!
It's important to have goals! Sometimes it can be discouraging if we don't reach them right away.
Here's some encouragement for you:
- Write it down: it makes it so much more real.
- Don't give up, it may take a while to reach your goal.
- Put yourself out there. Make connections in the blog + handmade world.
- Don't be afraid to dream big.
- Have a support system: everyone needs cheerleaders!
I want to say THANK YOU to American Baby Magazine, Bella NYC Magazine & all of you for your constant support & encouragement! It means so much to me!
