In my free time I create. I create pieces altered art, dolls, paintings, etc. Sometimes I get up the nerve to send the pieces I create to Somerset. It wasn’t until I first read Somerset Studios a few years ago did I find a way to express and focus the creativity that bounces around in my head. I knew this was me as soon as I first opened that magazine.
About 9 months ago I submitted 6 of my dolls to Somerset Art Doll Quarterly. I haven’t heard anything. I have been watching the mail for them to come back home. Nothing. A few days ago I received a few magazines in the mail. I didn’t look at them closely, I just added them to the “magazines to be read” pile in my kitchen.
Today I pulled one out that I thought was a catalogue. I was just going to toss it, clean up some clutter. Mindlessly throwing away things I thought were junk. Then, I noticed the “Congratulations” written across the paper covering the front of the magazine. Turns out 2 of my dolls were published and they sent me a copy of the magazine.
That’s my name! Those are my dolls! WooHoo!
Too exciting 🙂 I just had to share!
