Brooke Burke Charvet and I have in common? (I know, this is tough one!)
We are both in Ladies Home Journal this month! Even though I have known about this for close to a year it wasn't hard to keep it under wraps because I honestly did not believe it would really happen until I saw it myself. Last Spring I was contacted through Etsy by the author of the article and that got the ball rolling. I was so excited, shocked and most of all NERVOUS. Oh my goodness. I really cannot adequately express how very far out of my comfort zone I had to travel to do this.
Somehow I made it through the interview. It helps when the person conducting the interview is absolutely delightful, which she was. Then there was the matter of photographs. You know I would prefer do just about anything rather than have my picture taken, right? Long division, bathroom cleaning, untangling knots in embroidery floss - anything anything but don't take my picture! I managed to luck out again because they sent over a miracle worker makeup artist and a super talented photographer and somehow they transformed frumpy old me into this:
Oh my gosh, what an honor and a thrill! Thank you Ladies Home Journal!
