(doing the Happy Dance!!!)
I recently found out that I have two things that are going to be published later this year! One is a bracelet that will be featured in the September 2009 issue of Bead Trends. And the other is a lampworking tutorial article that will be featured in The Flow Magazine. I'm really excited, and as these were my first submissions to these great publications, I feel very fortunate that they were accepted so quickly. Unfortunately, I can't show any of these projects yet, but I promise I'll post pics as soon as they hit the stands!
I also have reason to celebrate as I finally finished up our taxes and got them filed just in the nick of time. I don't know why I procrastinate so long over them every year—especially when we almost always get a big refund due us. *sigh* But then again, it's pretty nice to get that "surprise" deposit in our bank account! ;-D Next year one of my resolutions will definitely be to get them done much earlier (so I can spend it earlier too! LOL).
