Bizzy B's -- I love our hive!
Last night was ATC night at Bizzie B's. Barb and Tony surprised me with a cake and a copy of Sew Somerset! We all celebrated me being on the cover -- and then they tortured me by making me sign a copy -- and I agonized for over 4 hours over what witty comment I could make -- only to decide on something lame like, "xoxo, ~martha" -- okay, I did plant a big lipstick kiss on the front too, LOL. Because I love you guys! Anyway, it was terribly embarassing -- but I finally got to actually see the magazine --- and I REALLY AM ON THE COVER! with 4 pieces inside! WOOO HOOO!!! (see, Cori, I really do say wooo -hoo! all the time). This Sew Somerset is my FAVOURITE of anything that Somerset/ Stampington has issued (even if I wasn't in it) . Here are some pics of my pages. Bizzy B's will have more issues of the magazine shortly. -- call them to reserve a copy. Hey, I'll kiss it for you! (okay, possibly not a great idea -- since I've been sick lately) (Thanks for all of your help, Cori -- and thanks for the picture!) (I look so tired because I WAS tired -- it was almost midnight -- past my bedtime)(At least I'm not showing you the picture of me reading on the throne)
My inspirations for the pieces are really funny. HEY, I sound kind of intelligent. Kind of. Maybe. Click on the pics to read the inspirations.
(Somerset actually has sent me a copy of the issue -- but it appears to be missing -- and the wonderful, helpful editor, Amanda Nolan emailed me to let me know that she will resend it if it isn't here in another week)(every time I have emailed her, she has responded within a few minutes -- and with follow up emails -- she really does her job well)
I'm concerned about missing / late mail. It seems, that all of a sudden, mail is getting really slow from anywhere to Canada. Since our dollar is so strong right now -- I think that lots of people must be ordering stuff fromthe US and perhaps there is a huge backlog at the border (customs). Right now a package of RR books that was sent to me in August is MISSING -- and the tracking says that it entered Canada on August 23. Of course, everyone in the RR is worried, especially Melinda and Penny -- the owners of the books. Please think positive thoughts for a speedy recovery of the books.
