credit where credit is due...

i just received my winter 09 issue of living crafts in the mail yesterday. and i must say, it's quite a thrill to see something you've created in print (my ornaments are in the 'good finds' section, and my doll sweater is in the 'ready to wear' section, as a companion to the girl's red holiday cardigan). i just love this magazine and eagerly await each issue. i was a charter subscriber and definitely feel a special bond to it. and now it holds an even more special place in my heart.





and i also want to give credit where credit is due. to a very special person who inspired me to make the two things that are featured in the magazine - my twin sister, shannon. she is the one who taught me how to make the ornaments. and also inspired my doll sweater pattern when she made this lovely little sweater for maya's special baby. thank you, shannon! you are an inspiration in more ways than you can imagine and i love you very much!

yours in thankfulness and inspiration,

shelley

Congrats on your features. I'm sure it is fun to see your work in print. Both projects are lovely. It is a beautiful issue and I would love to make everything in it... but of course I always feel that way. There are just not enough hours in the day. ;)

I just got my copy yesterday too and have been pouring over it. I love the sweater and can't wait to attempt making one too! It is amazing to make a connection with someone you've never met! Blogging is wondering!

Just got mine, well done! I see other Etsy crafters there as well. I wonder if the makers contacted the mag or the other way?

I think I've waited most of my life for this magazine. It's a big Yay! My daughter are in heaven.
