holy wow -- check me out!

this magazine is on the newstands now -- the december/january issue of ready made.

and inside...

...is a little feature on me and chez-sucre-chez!
holy crap - i had no idea it was going to be THIS AWESOME.
jen from ready made contacted me a couple of months ago and invited me to be a part of the issue. i was so flattered. (i still am so flattered!)
working with jen (editor) and ilana (photo editor), i came up with this project for how to make these cute little embroidered initial pieces -- easy enough for anyone to do! so i stitched up the examples and wrote up the instructions and sent that on over to the folks at ready made to be photographed and typed up.

they also asked me to send them a wish-list of ten things i would be psyched to receive this holiday season -- they said i could go wild, to i threw in the culinary vacation to italy... (heh-heh!)

and then they sent me on over to the adorable mister spencer heyfron to have my portrait taken. -- how exciting it all was!
of course i was anxious and nervous and excited to see the piece in print. i'd been stalking the newsstands in anticipation and now it has finally arrived and i couldnt be happier. wow, i really am so happy and proud and flattered and impressed and psyched..... it's beautiful! the photo is great, the illustrations are AMAZING, the layout it adorable -- mmmm - so happy.
thank you so SO SOOOOOOOOOO much, jen and ilana and spencer and everyone else who worked on this, for your support and your belief in what i'm doing and for making it all look so fantastic! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo!
