When’s the Last Time You Got Published?

Never or it’s been awhile? Now’s the time for you to send in a card or other craft to your favorite crafting magazines. The magazines are always looking for new items and if you don’t send your nifty little creations, you may never get published. I never thought my cards or ideas were good enough to get published, yet they have been almost been continously published since 2007. If I hadn’t been brave and sent in that first idea/card, it wouldn’t have happened. I still get a thrill every time I see my stuff in print! Not to brag or anything, for instance, the June 2011 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine has a new Reader to Reader column and they have printed two of my questions in it. I have a Letter to the Editor and an Inklings idea also published in there. And I’m among friends who have also been published – Joan Petty from England, Verna Angerhofer, and Lindsay Weinrich (another Frugal Crafter).
Check out your favorite magazines' submission requirements (keywords: Submission requirements/Editorial Calendar) and send in your best. If you have any questions about what I do, just ask away in the comment section below and I can share some tips with you.

  1. I notice there were a lot of familiar names and I read the whole column in which your questions were answered. Congrats to you on that and all of your other publications. Way to go girl!
