Yesterday, Jeff and I strolled down to Barnes and Noble at lunchtime because (surprise!) I’m in the February 2012 issue of Women’s Day magazine. Yay!
Of course, I always get excited about magazine features, but I have to admit it’s partly because I like to send a copy to my grandma every time it happens so she knows I’m legit (she basically has no idea what I do for a living because she has never been on a computer in her life so its kind of difficult to explain it to her. but magazine features she understands).
Anyway, this year is the 75th anniversary of the mag and I am honored to be a part of it. My project for a lacy frosted glass mirror is on page 46. You may remember the original mirror project from the blog a couple of years ago if you’ve been around for a while.
If you’re interested, you can pick up a copy at your local book store or head to the Woman’s Day website and get the full tutorial online to make your own.
Big thanks to Woman’s Day for featuring my project. Really a pleasure to work with them.
You may have heard me chatting on twitter about how I am speaking at CCE this year in San Francisco: Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs.
The conference is August 5th through the 7th at the San Francisco Women’s Building (in the lively Mission district). Tickets are available right here and full 3day passes as well as individual one day passes can be purchased. They even have childcare available.
The etiquette of approaching press contacts, what materials to put in your press kit, when it makes sense to hire a PR rep or publicist, and how to get the best response with the least amount of effort.
For more info about CCE, read the FAQ page.
Let me know if you are planning on going. I’d love to meet you in person and say hello face to face.
And if you’re already going to be in the San Francisco area that weekend, I’d be thrilled to have you join me at the Fizz & Frills wedding marketplace event, which is going on August 6th and 7th at Blu Bungalow.
I’ll be doing a live demonstration from 2-3pm on Sunday the 7th for Fizz & Frills, where I’ll share a do-it-yourself wedding project that even the least crafty lady on earth can complete.
One day and two day tickets are available and start at just $15! To purchase a ticket for Fizz & Frills click here.

A couple of months ago, I was asked to contribute a party project to HGTV’s website, and (duh) I was honored to 1) be asked 2) actually put something new together- it’s been a while since my last tutorial. The article recently went live on HGTV.com and I wanted to share an outtake with you (the photo above is not the one they decided to use, so head over to the DIY Party article to see the one they picked).
My DIY party project is number 10 of 13 (it’s on a slideshow thingy-ma-gig). Thanks to Jen Jafarzadeh L’Italien from The Haystack Needle who put this whole thing together for HGTV.
If you love crafting, visit the DIY Party article on HGTV.com now (lots of great ideas).
And along those same lines, I wanted to give a shout out to 2Modern who has been posting up links to my DIYs lately (plus Lauren’s book frame diy that she did for Papernstitch), and I really appreciate the link love. You should check out their blog (good inspiration source).
If you’d like more info on one of these three projects, which were recently featured on 2Modern, you can get the full tutorials here…
And if you have any thoughts on these DIYs or would like to share what you think I should make next, please leave your response in the comments below.

This might be old news to you. But just in case you haven’t heard… Recently, I was interviewed by Srini at BlogcastFM. If you are not familiar with BlogcastFM already, you really should check it out. It’s a great resource for bloggers and small business owners alike.
But anyway, as part of the interview, I shared some info that I’ve never really discussed on the blog (or anywhere else) before. Here’s what we touched on in the 40 minute podcast:
1. How Teaching a High School Art Class Inspired the Creation of a Blog
2. Putting together Killer Tutorial Posts that Get TONS of Traffic
3. How to Become a Regular Contributor on a Blog
4. How get Repeat Business and Freelance Work from Magazines
5. And more.
