I am so excited...

I am finally able to share some news I have been holding inside for over 6 months.

I am the Designer Highlight for July 2012 for Bead Trends Magazine!!!

I was contacted by Tatia from Bead Trends and asked if I would be interested.
Once I picked my moth off the floor and stopped leaping around my house squealing I resonded with YES!!!

Then the hard work and panic came.
What should I make?
Will they like it?
How much should I send?
What if they meant another Shannon?
Which headshot?
Should I include my daughter or not?
What if I don't get my pieces and tutorials done on time?
What if my package gets lost in the mail?

Well to answer my fears,
they must have meant me, the must have liked what I sent, I got delivery confirmation so I kew they got it, they used my head shot, with my daughter and they used 8 pieces which was everything I sent :-)

I am not going to bombard you with everything in 1 day because I fear blogger will explode plus I want to talk about each piece individually so for today here is the first page:
