Drum Roll Please. . . A Piece of Pie has been Published!

With six months of waiting I finally got to get the first issue off the shelf at my local Michael’s last night.  It was a bit surreal standing in the corner of my Michael’s flipping through the February issue of Cricut magazine and there it was!  I felt like Martha Stewart for one hot minute. . .  without her enormous empire and bank account! 

Back to the reality of laundry, housecleaning, and taking care of the two best things I ever made!  Still it was super fun to be known other than “just a mom that lives in sweats and t-shirts” for a minute. 

I think it is neat that my kids are seeing me shoot for dreams and challenges and achieving success within my scope of reality.  I hope that these are examples that will resonate with them as they mature into amazing young women, that it is OK to put yourself and your talent out there no matter where you are in life and sometimes the payoff is very rewarding and self-fulfilling. 

Thanks for sharing a piece of “15 minutes of Cricut crafting fame” pie with me!

Exciting News Here at Camp Pie!

Yesterday while I was catching up on some emails, I received an email from Cricut magazine’s publisher (http://northridgepublishing.com/landing/cricutmag/cricutmagazine.html) accepting my submission for February 2012 issue!  I am over the moon with excitement.  The hubs went as far to tell me that he had trouble sleeping since the beaming light that came from my permanent smile was a bit annoying to try to sleep through!

Shhhh… I can’t tell you what I submitted, but come February the cat will be out of the bag!

As part of my acceptance speech, I would like to thank the hubs for all his support and “funding” to my down time activity from chasing around a 2 and 3-year-old.  And I would like to thank My Pink Stamper (http://www.mypinkstamper.com/), for just being “out there” via the internet!  All I was doing one night was trying to figure out how to use my Cricut Expressions and then stumbled upon her videos and then her website and then all her designers.  The creative energy she brings to the table is contagious and I feel that she has this gift of holding the keys of being able to open the gates to encouraging personal creativity.

Thanks for coming and having an exciting piece of pie news! 🙂
