so grateful ...published!!

Published!!
I am truly thrilled to have my little bunnies featured on 3 pages of the current issue of Prims magazine, which was released on May 1st.  I am writing this quite a bit later than I expected because my dad had a heart attack on April 30 and is slowly recovering but doing well. 
A few months ago I received an email from Jennifer Jackson Taylor, editor of Prims magazine, asking if I would be interested in having some of my work featured in their magazine?  YES!!  Does anyone ever say no to that?   It is such a surreal feeling.  I know I love what I do but when someone actually wants to put in in print, it's a strange feeling.  The first thing Lydia asked me is if I would mention her :)...she's not as shy as her old mom is. 
Thank you Jennifer and Stampington & Company with your many lovely artful publications including Prims.

It's been a bittersweet month but I feel so blessed.

Warm hugs,
Jenn xo
