newsworthy: catshy crafts published

Newsworthy? Well, magazine-worthy, anyway.

I was lucky enough to be featured in two magazines this summer.

Yarn-wrapped Wreath in Simply Handmade: Decor

Simply Handmade: Decor 2012 featured the very first thing I sold through my Etsy shop. My yarn-wrapped wreath! Delaney Gates, the magazine's editor convo-ed me through Etsy and asked if I wanted to be published. Of course, I said yes, and immediately went to work on a fresh wreath to send to the magazine. That was back in February 2012. My husband, Jamie took this photo of the new wreath along with the original that still hangs on my front door.

The neat thing about Simply Handmade is that they love Etsy! And feature many Etsy shops, even including the Etsy shops' URL prominently in the article. I even got my little old blog mentioned.

"It's My Party" Scrapbook Layout in Scrapbook Trends

Scrapbook Trends (a sister publication to Simply Handmade) published one of my scrapbooking layouts in the August 2012 issue. From time to time, I submit my pages (both paper and digital) to various scrapbooking magazines and occasionally one will be chosen. This particular page was very special to me. The fact that I broke out the paper scrapbooking supplies in the first place was the first indicator. Why was it so special? Well, it was all about my artist's reception and unofficial launch party for Catshy Crafts!

Full Circle

And to bring the whole experience to full circle, in typical scrapbooker fashion, tonight I made a page about it. This time a digital page using digital kits by Sahlin Studio.
