Sew Magazine: Blog of the Month

Several months ago I was contacted by a UK sewing magazine, called “Sew Magazine” and asked if they could feature my blog as the “Blog of the Month”.  I couldn’t believe it…….really? Little ole me?  Well, it was true!  They said they like to feature an inspirational sewing blog each month and they had chosen my blog for the September 2011 issue.  Wow!  To say I was flattered would be the biggest understatement of the year!

Last week I was sent my copy of the magazine.  To be honest, I’ve never purchased this magazine before, but I think I may have to going forward.  Not just because they were so sweet to include me, but because it is a truly beautiful sewing magazine.  It came packaged nicely in plastic and each copy of the magazine includes a monthly sewing pattern.  This months pattern is a knit dress with a really fun, funky jacket.  There is a whole section of the magazine dedicated to sewing with this pattern that includes ideas, inspiration, and helpful hints.

When I flipped to the “Table of Contents”, I couldn’t believe my eyes – is that my little girls bedroom?  Sure enough, pictured under “Sew Living”, is Savannah and Matilda’s Shared Toddler Bedroom.  Pretty cool.

And then flip to page 50 and there I am.  I had no idea they would be including MY picture in the magazine, but there I was with little Miss Matilda.  They wrote a nice feature about the blog and how I got started in blogging.

I seriously pinch myself every time I have something featured in a print publication.  There is just something so, so gratifying about seeing your name or business in printed form.  It’s definitely something you can hold and keep forever.  Like I said above, I am beyond flattered to have been chosen as Sew Magazine’s “Blog of the Month”.

You can click HERE to check out Sew Magazine’s website and you should be able to find the magazine where a large selection of crafting and sewing publications are sold (such as Barnes and Noble).  The magazine is loaded with information and has free patterns, templates and projects throughout.  I would definitely say their target audience is a bit younger, but I think everyone could find some great information in this publication.

Thanks for letting me share these exciting moments with you all.  When I started this blog almost 2 years ago, I had no idea these are the types of opportunities that would come my way.  
I feel blessed, very blessed!
