Long ago in a galaxy far away...

It is finally on the stands! Last summer, I submitted some cuffs to Stampington Publishers - for use in their publications. Today I received the Feb/Mar/Apr issue of Altered Couture and there on page 110 are mycuffs!

When I submitted these, I had not yet opened my Etsy shop, and really hadn't any idea what I would be doing in the future. They had just issued a challenge to design some cuffs, I had time, and I like a challenge, so I made these (and a couple of others) and submitted them.

It was in their pages that I saw Etsy as a venue for several of their contributors, and so started thinking about it as a selling venue... (and cuffs as a product!) The rest, as they say, is history.

It seems like a lifetime ago that I submitted these, but the thrill of seeing them on the page is wonderful. Thanks Stampington!

Prosit - those are really cute cuffs too. I wanted to thank you for your feedback on Etsy - no time to work on that yet but I'm keeping your advice in mind. Have a lovely weekend

Love it! How wonderful for your work to be in a national magazine!
