This post is only for the sake of keeping a memory marker on the blog, not as a pat on the back or to gain loads of attention. But I was surprised last month to find myself featured in not one, but TWO magazines!
Yes, and funny enough I was completely unaware until 2 blog friends alerted me. Ha!
Better Homes & Gardens
Last Fall, I was honored to be chosen as a Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker and attended the event in NYC. I know, I still owe you guys the full run down and recap. Soon, I promise! My sweet sweet sweet southern friend and roomie for the event, Brittany, of Addison’s Wonderland was featured in Better Homes & Gardens with me. There we are right in the middle holding a couple granola bars!
Can’t wait to tell you all about our super COZY little NYC room. Let’s just say the room was like 200 square feet (maybe) and we shared a double bed. Good times!
The magazine did a recap of the event in their January issue. The 2-page layout is in the front of the magazine…
I recognized many of the cute faces and stories. It was fun to re-live the event for a moment and it reminded me to get my butt in gear and write that recap for you guys!
Brittany alerted me to the BH&G’s issue, but 2 days later my friend Becky of Clean Mama sent an e-mail saying “Congrats!”. With it was an image of one of my most popular DIY projects illustrated in a magazine.
I immediately asked where she saw it, what the magazine was, etc. We both got a kick out of the fact I was unaware. And funny enough, she was just relaxing at a hair salon reading a magazine when she saw the article. Ha! Good thing she chose that magazine to thumb through!
It’s in the January issue of Family Circle and it’s my Trash Bags on a Roll diy, which is the project that brings loads of new friends to the blog on the daily. Crazy, huh?
Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise that can also be found linked on their website.
Both were a nice perk to my new year and I wanted to share them again, for the sake of having the memory safely tucked away on the blog. Sometimes I’m blown away with what can happen when you start writing a blog, sharing your ideas and your work. It’s amazing where it can take you!
Thanks for reading!
