I think I fixed the problem... and some really great news!


Thank you to all of you who emailed me to tell me I had a problem with my blog. Some of you saw everything just fine and left me sweet comments already, but some of you have been unable read any posts. I think I have the problem fixed. I believe it was a corrupt jpeg in the post. I tossed that one in the trash and started over. Hopefully you can all see everything normally again. So.... here is the last post in case you missed it!!!

It’s finally here!!!! If you had told me a year ago that I would have an article in Where Women Create magazine I would have told you, you were NUTS!!! Now, here I am in the magazine, with a growing Blog Design business and hundreds of wonderful friends from all over the World!!! I am on Cloud 9!!!

The whole team over at the magazine were so wonderful to work with and they created such a beautiful issue! It feels like forever since this journey started, and I am so thrilled with the way it turned out! And not only is my article in there, but my friend Rebecca from Vintage Living has a huge story in there about her as well!!! I could not have a asked for a more wonderful magazine for my first published story. It still feels kind of surreal! My hands are still shaking!!!! The magazine will not be on the newstands until the first week of May, but I believe subscribers are already starting to receive their copies.

I will be making the official announcement about the upcoming Where Bloggers Create party on Monday. I’m off now to read the rest of the magazine!!! Woooo Hooo!!!!

Congratulations, Karen! I can't even imagine the excitement you must have over this. I believe I saw the cover over at WWC's blog and noticed your name right off! I must make sure I get a copy when May is here. Well deserved and I wish you much success with this exposure!
