Usually one of the first things I do when I wake up is check my email. So, today, I did that like I do almost every day and saw something awesome. I got an email from Northridge Publishing saying that they wanted one of my designs to publish in their June CARDS magazine!! I was so excited. Now I have to fill out their form and send it back with the card and a picture of the original submission I sent to them (so they know it’s the same card that they chose).
It’s such a great feeling of validation, knowing that someone, somewhere likes your work. It’s the same feeling I get when someone buys something of mine off of Etsy or at a craft show. Or even better, when someone asks for a special request from you and then tell you how much they love it.
Okay – I am off to fill out the forms and send my card so they can get it by the 20th.
