Published :-)

I've officially been published...TWICE!


The excitement of receiving the magazines in the mail, knowing my articles were in there were priceless!!!
Ironically, the two magazines aren't affiliated in any way but I was published in the March edition of both of them.  
One is our local magazine.  My sweet friend, Lee Ann, asked if I'd be interested in doing a DIY piece and of course I said YES! 



She wrote the article and I created the Easter crafts (during Christmas...which was very weird).
I made an Easter-y tree, a chalkboard, and a bright, Spring wreathe (my favorite craft- very Lily P. if you asked me!)
  I love the way it turned out and I am so grateful that she asked me to be a part!

The second magazine is Military Spouse Mag.

  I wrote the article and did the DIY projects for this particular assignment.  
The article was about easy, inexpensive ways to decorate your home when you are constantly changing homes. This was obviously geared toward military families.
 I did a chalkboard tutorial, a personalized family monogram canvas, and some framed children's art.

I'm inspired to seek out more writing and crafting opportunities in my future!
  It really is so rewarding to put time and effort into something and then be able to see the finished results in hard copy.  
I'm hooked!

I loved the family chalk board idea in military spouse mag. & I had no idea that you were the contributor until today. I just found your blog and started following it yesterday. I love all of your stories and creativity. I started my own blog last month when my husband went active Army, and you are certainly an inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing :)

Can I just tell you AGAIN how blessed I am that God put you in my life?? I am so honored to know you, and I am so proud of you for seeing your visions through the way you do. You are so talented beyond words. You are such an inspiration. Even READING your posts lights up my day; so when you walk into my shop makes it absolutely illuminate!!

That is SO cool about the magazine publications! Congrats!! And I just had to tell you that I met your brother today at Chickfila in Lynchburg. My sister, Sarah Bennett knows you & Seth & he came over to the table today to say HI & she introduced us. After he left & I was asking who it was.....I thought maybe it was one of the LU students that rent rooms in sis' basement....but she said no.....you know that blog you love 'Patriotic Peacock'....well that's her brother. ;-) How's that for a 'small world.'
