My 15 Minutes of Fame!!! WooHoo!!

Spring Issue           
My "Shag Bag"

The most exciting things can happen when you least expect them! I have been featured in "Haute Handbags" magazine (spring issue) along with a number of talented handbag designers. Many fellow estians are featured by Sommerset publications. If you have never seen one of their magazines, you are in for a real treat! They have been around since about 1994 (I started with "Sommerset Studios" back then), and have added numerous publications on all things handmade. The pictures are glorious and articles well written!  I can't tell you how flattering it was to be contacted by the  editor, and asked if I would be interested in submitting my "Shag Bag". Oh HECK yes!! It was a long wait, (since last fall), to see the issue and make sure I was not "bumped" or something horrible! After all, I did tell all of my family and friends. Now I can announce it to the world. I've been published!!!  How fun it that?!?! All of my hard work and designing was noticed by someone! So, thank you Beth, for finding me and making it happen. And do take a look!!
