Last June, after a couple of emails with a couple of trusted friends on the S.O. design team, I decided to set a goal for myself. The goal was to get published in two years. That meant that I needed to submit. As if the doubts and fears were not enough to stop me cold in the tracks, the amount of work it takes to submit a layout would have deterred me. So thank goodness for goals, and to make sure I would be accountable for my goal, I told hubby and Jessy.
So the "call" came when I was in Shanghai back in October, this layout I created for the Memory Makers birthday call. And now it is in print, I am still incredulous. Really, I am. I have another one in the next issue, and two in the issue after that, not to mention a couple of other magazines, but I must save some good news for other posts... So here I am, holding my name in print and in honor of this layout's title, I tell onto you, Carpe Diem! If it can happen to me, it can happen to you!
