The Shoes are Published!

I want to thank all of you for the support and encouragement you have given my artwork. I would never have dreamed this was possible. I'm thrilled to say that my shoes have been published in the latest autumn issue of Somerset Life. I especially would like to thank Somerset Life's Editor-in-Chief Jenny Doh and Editor Morgan McLaughlin for their guidance in getting my creations published.

This whole process has been one of discovery and adventure. I encourage you all to dream big. Anything is possible!

Here are some sneak peeks. This magazine is filled with beauty, inspiring ideas for fall and winter and --the best part-- many wonderful bloggers that you know. If you love our blogging community you won't want to miss this issue.

Miss Sandy said...

I am off to the bookstore tomorrow to snag an issue! Congratulations!!! I am so excited for you and I can't wait to see what is next!

You certainly may keep photos of the tiles and project. They are natural stone and there are four tiles used in the design, the 4x4 squares, the rope tiles, and two border tiles, one being the center section that is ornate with the flowers and leaves and the other the molding look with the carved beads. It took two of the molding pieces and one of the ornate ones to make up each border section. I an honored that you liked it to so well as to keep it for your design file. In case you were wondering, they were purchased at Lowes.

Have a sweet week!

Rosemary said...
