I received a note in the mail that said:

Your material has recently been pub-
lished in either Scrap & Stamp Arts
or Just Cards. We hope that you will
consider submitting again in the
future. Should you have any ques-
tions, please do not hesitate to visit
our Web site,
How cool is that? They included one of my cards, I assume the one they chose. It's a dark colored one with an Asian Lady. I paper pieced her clothing. It's actually one of my least favorite ones I sent them but thats exactly why I sent them a whole pile of different type ones so they could pick what they liked best you know? Anyhow I'm on cloud nine. I wonder if I'll get a free issue, I know that's pretty standard.. I hope so I love those magazines. I sent it to the Just Cards division but I know they are related so if they liked it more for something in the Scrap and Stamp Arts they would just use it there. Have I mentioned that I'm excited?
I actually got all sorts of cool mail today:
A book I ordered on Amazon
An order of cloth diapers (we are giving it a try)
Some almonds I did a free survey for
A magazine (It's this magazine Ready Made, it's not crafts,but about reusing stuff and generally not having so much waste... we'll see how I like it, it's only my second issue)
A Swap for my Bella Image Swap.
and the Notification of Publication
So it was a banner mail day for me! :)
Cloth diapers are CUTE I got mine from Hugga Buns. Stephen, my toddler didn't like it when I tried to put one on him. I think he doesn't understand he's allowed to pee in there.. Anyhow I got them for Ethan my baby. :) I'll let you all know what I think of them. :)

CONGRATS!!!! I've never had the guts to send anything in for publication. Way cool!!! Seems they could have told you which one. Do you know when the card will be out??? You'll have to let us know so I can buy it & tell everyone "I know her"
