Yesterday was a good mail day. I received a new mug from Vistaprint to replace one of my older ones that I’d broken. I love the new design on this one. Despite the fact that I still have 4 or 5 perfectly good Polka Dot Cottage mugs from years gone by, I still kinda want to design a couple more new ones. Somebody stop me. My mug cabinet overflows as it is.
Also, there’s Artful Blogging.
It’s been so long since I’ve written a magazine article, sometimes I forget that I have actually been published before. About ten years ago, I had two articles in PolymerCAFE. That was cool, but it was at a time when I struggled with photography, and the images I provided to them were really only just passable.
It’s so different for me now. Now I take great pleasure in photography, and I know a lot more about what the heck I am doing behind the camera. Seeing my words and images in print these days is a different kind of pleasure. Sure, it’s always cool to be published in a national magazine, but it’s doubly exciting when you have just as much confidence in the pictures as you do in the words.
My Artful Blogging article is right there, in living color, on page 84.
Did I mention how cool it is to see your photographs in print? Yes? Well, it bears repeating. It’s pretty cool.
(P.S. Thank you, Stampington & Company, for noticing me!)
