Published in Altered Couture Spring 2011

I've Been Published February 2011
Altered Couture Magazine
I found out last week that my Tulle Coat was selected to be published in the Feb 2011 Issue of Altered Couture Magazine. This is the first item I have ever submitted to a magazine and I was so excited when I found out that I was being published (and still am). I had been working on this coat and had some final touches I needed to make that I had been putting off. A few days before the entry deadline I was going to finish the coat and ship it, well one of my dear aunts had a heart attack and I completely forgot about the coat. I rushed to her side and remained there for 3 days. When I got home I remembered that I had not finished the coat. So I stayed up for hours completing it and shipped it overnight UPS. It was not cheap to ship but I had put so much detailed work into it that I wasn't about to not ship it. Anyway my aunt recovered and is doing well and my work was published. There is always a way:
