It's my turn...

Seems like there have been lots of surprises and very exciting news in blogland this spring. Now I have some of my own to share. I was going to keep this a secret a little longer, but word seems to be seeping out from people that regularly check here. Then Christi emailed me a congratulations, and said that she saw on the web site that there was going to be an article on me. I checked and lo and behold there I was in lights! My first glimpse at the article. So I am thrilled to say that the first ever issue of Artful Blogging magazine that will premiere on August 1st will feature an article on ArtsyMama blog! Woohoo!!!! This will be my first time published and I am beyond thrilled! From what I see in the first two pages (it will be a 4 page article) it looks like it's going to be fantastic:)
More info on the magazine here. It says there will be over 35 bloggers featured, who else is going to be in it? Fess up. I'd love to hear!!

Artful Blogger Summer Bash!!!

In other big news, since I have had so many people commenting on how fun the tea party was and it will be featured in the article in the magazine, I have decided to host a Artful Blogger Summer Bash for everyone that has a blog or reads blogs to celebrate the new publication and a great reason to party with creative bloggers all around the world. The party will be held on Wednesday, August 8th here on my blog. So mark your calendars. It will run much like the tea party, I will have a post that day and link to everyone else that hosts a party on thier blog. It will be fabulous. More info to come!!

Congratulations! I know your blog inspires me. And your tea party opened up a whole new blogging community to me that I didn't know was out there. I hope I'm home for the summer party fun in August.

Your friend in Plymouth!!?? said...

So happy for you!! My friend emailed me yesterday and asked if I had read the latest Post Script. She said ArtsyMama is featured in it so I quick checked it out. I already knew about this but I forget now how I knew!! (old age setting in)!! I'm so proud of you Carrie. We will both be buying the magazine. I love all of Stampington's magazines and the products available on their website. I can hardly wait to purchase the first issue!! I told you the last time I saw you that you were a celebrity!! Congrats!!

WooHoo! Congratulations! I'm a little puzzled, though--I thought blogging was an cyber space thing and now it's a publication? That's seems an oxymoron, but hey! what do I know? I'm so glad you're getting recognition--that's a wonderful thing!

Dawn said...

Kari, congrats! I just saw the article sneak peak in the Stampington e-newsletter and couldn't be more excited to get my hands on that mag! And I love your idea about a blogger party after it's release, especially if we can all get our hands on the mag prior to the 8th. There really was no way for them to make a mag such as this and not include your royal blogginess! Congrats again.

Renee said...

Congrat's Kari....It looks lovely and If you would be so kind to scan it in and email it to me I would so appreicate it. I wish we got here that in SA. I would love to buy it, but the time P&p is added, it is costing me the same as buying 5 magazines here! You deserve this, for sharing your art and inspiration with us all!!!!!
