Such amazing news!!!


I am so excited, I'm bursting at the seams to share this news! I got an email the other day from Jo Packham, the president of Where Women Create. She said she heard about my party and came over to check it out. She was thrilled with what we had put together and wanted to be a part of the festivities next year! So the magazine will be sponsoring our next creative spaces soiree!!! There will be prizes and party favors and the support of a fabulous magazine!!! Can you believe it???? WAIT! It gets so much better! This fall they are going to come out and do a photo shoot of MY studio!!! It will appear in the May/June issue along with a story about the party. Then I will hold next years party sometime in June. The number of new people that will know about the party is mind boggling! But wait.... there's more. One lucky guest will be chosen and the magazine will come out and do a photo shoot of THEIR creative space for a future issue!!!! And then after all that, she said they will probably do a story about the party in Artful Blogging as well! OMG. You should have seen me doing the happy dance all over my house yesterday! This is a dream come true. Somebody pinch me!!!!

DEFINITELY news worth dancing over! Congrats! I was late to the festivities, but I've thoroughly enjoyed looking through the links you've left posted up (I'm in the Ps now..).
It was a fantastic idea to begin with & now it looks like you might have an annual event on your hands. Maybe if I can get MY space up to snuff, I'll try to get in on the fun.

Karen-what a thrilling opportunity for you! You did a great job in organizing and announcing the tour and I willingly gave up a day's housework to pour over everyone's spaces (magical!) Your studio is awesome and will look great in the pages of the magazine. Congratulations to you! Pinch you? I'd guess you'd need smelling salts! LOL! ~Joyce

Oh my, oh my, OH MY! That is so incredibly exciting!!!!! I'm thrilled! I was sad that I didn't get to join the party this year because my studio isn't quite finished...{still building and painting furniture, curtains to hang, STUFF to organize!} but I WILL be finished by then. What a way to get me motivated to finish up and do a top notch job! May I blog about your good news in the near future?

This is wonderful news and being in "Where Bloggers Create" is the real caveat. I can only imagine how proud you are. You deserve it, though. I'm sure the event was a great deal of hard work.

Awesome news! I was too late for this year (I'm in the middle of re-vamping my studio) but hope to be able to post next year. Good things come slow my Grandma always said...well, it's slowly, but surely coming along. Good for you...and it's certainly because you were a wonderful hostess! Tami E.

I am so happy that your studio will be in the magazine. I wanted to see more!
Jo really is a wonderful woman and what a great thing she is doing by highlighting your party and you!

I had so much fun participating in the party and then for the last week have been on every day to see more! Alas I am not done and have to leave on vacation tonight so I will not make it to everyone's house, Boo hoo!
Well next year will be fun!

Have a wonderful week and I will check in when I get back!

My Arts Desire said...

Congratulations!!! What a wonderful thing to have happen to you. I'm excited because you'll be having another party. I wasn't able to participate in this one because we are in the process of moving. But I took advantage of participating as a spectator and have some great new ideas for the future.

What was especially thrilling for me to see were the stories of the women who took this opportunity as a challenge and in many cases FINALLY organized their creative messes. Just think of all the hours of enjoyment "you created" for those people by hosting your party.

ginger said...

Congratulations! You did an amazing job of the party and the recognition is well deserved! Again, congrats and enjoy the excitement. Keep us up to day on the fun when it happens. Yea for you!

It doesn't surprise me Karen. You are so cool and so inergetic and so creative. When you first started Deseret Cottage I had no idea you had a shop. How did you get all of those people to get on the list. I am so excited for you and definately I want to do it next year. Don't forget me!

FitToSeeJane said...

I am so happy for you. Your party has brought me so much happiness over the last week. You deserve the best!
Truly I'm not all the way through the list afte viewing about 30 minutes a day all week. If you take them off the sidebar would you consider just editing them into the post itself so they could be seen for a while longer? Just a thought, but you are so awesome whatever you want to do is fine.

I enjoyed the party so much. I just finished going through all of the blogs; there are so many inspirational studios out there. I love your studio, and loved reading about how you found (or made) your unique pieces like the wall cabinet that you painted white. What a great idea.
What great news being sponsored next year. I will have to pick up the issue where your studio is featured, too. Thank you for all the work you put into this! Your blog quickly became one of my favorites. I'll stop rambling now! lol :) Hope you have a peaceful, creative weekend!
