New Winners & New Magazine!

I've very excited to get my tush in gear and start sending out the prizes I gave away during my birthday celebration. It will take a while and I haven't had time to work on it until now but I just love the idea of sending some love out into the world with a little piece of me in the package, kwim? It's always favorite mail time for me, when I receive a prize, a letter or even just a little card from a friend. It reminds me that there is a world outside my house, my family and my little life. Anyway, I'm having fun getting it all packed up. In the meantime, here are the final winners:

1 - Altered Book -
2 - Poe Bookmark w/kit for making more - Lucy
3 - 20 pc set of Sticker sheets - Sherry Goodloe
4 - Orange 'Love' piece -
Kris Hubick
5 - Mix of fabrics & Ribbons - Kristin M
6 - 5+ stamps from my drawer purge - Bunny

(The GC prize to the AlteredArts store had to be postponed until they straighten out my order. I'll have another giveaway soon!)

If you're still looking to win something, Kris Hubick is having a scrumptious giveaway of her own! GO HERE to enter, but save some for me! lol


A month or so ago I was asked to share some of my journal & altered book pages in an indie publication magazine called Page By Page. I was surprised and honored. It's a wonderful magazine of inspiration for visual journals. The articles, how-tos, even a feature on Roben-Marie Smith this month (who is frequently found in Somerset Studio) is such a fabulous combination of inspiration and information. I haven't been able to put down my copy since it came! So, I just wanted to share this magazine with you, if you're looking for something new and interesting, this is a great read.

Hey, Contessa--
my e-mail replies to you keep bouncing back, so don't think I'm not answering you, or ungrateful, or anything of that nature.

VERY neat about the magazine!
