The New Phonebook's Here! I'm Somebody Now! Or, My First Magazine Feature!

Yep, I finally made it into a magazine! 

To all my New Visitors:
Please let me know how you found this post
so I can thank them for sharing!

Better Homes and Gardens "Holiday Crafts" Magazine 2013. On Newsstands now!

Ten points to anyone for guessing what movie the blog post title came from.....:)

I created these ornaments, and sold them in my Etsy shop, 3 Christmases ago,
and BHG contacted me just this last October.

I think, in this case, it worked in my favor
that I generally create non-trendy designs.
The classics never go out of style, ya know.....:)

 Thank You to Etsy and/or Pinterest,
cuz this wouldn't have happened without them!
And, of course, to BHG for selecting me!
Oh I do love the Internets.......

Come Join Me on Instagram!

    1. Greetings Arlene! This was an ornament design I sold from my Etsy shoppe several years ago. And then a couple years after that, it was included in this magazine issue with instructions. I'll let you know if I create more or if I can find my full instructions. Thank you for visiting my blog! Maria with Magia Mia

  12. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!personalized stainless steel water bottles
