A New Years resolution introduced by Lorelei

Lorelei just blogged about this:

Submit your jewelry to magazines!:
"It can be quite intimidating, and daunting- the thought of submitting your jewelry designs to magazines. It took me quite a while to muster ..."

I recommend you to go there and read her full post on the subject, with useful links and all.

I have planned a few times to submit my own jewellery to magazines. But I didn't get around doing it in the end. If I sum up this last year for myself from the beading and jewellery aspect, soooooo much has happened anyway. It has been quite enough really. I consider myself very lucky and happy. I always want more of course. And especially I want to produce more than I do. I want to share more of my designs and sell more. I want so much! But I have to take into account my illness which kind of makes it difficult for me ever so often. It IS frustrating. But maybe it is good sometimes if things don't go tooo fast.

So this is my New Year's resolution: To submit my jewellery to a few magazines during the next year.

Wish me good luck. I will follow all of Lorele's advice to improve my chances, that's for shure. Thanks for a great post!

Good luck with your submissions. That was one of my resolutions for this year too, submit work to more magazines. Have a great New Year!

You absolutely must! My first tutorial that was accepted was a total accident -- I just sent in the photo and it all just sort of happened. And if they say no thanks, keep sending!

Malin, You make the most gorgeous things ... you should definitely follow through with your goal ... you'll be seeing your work in print without a doubt! Sometimes it's hard to fit it in with busy schedules ... just make a date with yourself, mark your calendar, and work toward it. Good luck!

Go for it Malin! You have really developed your own style this year I think, from a blog reader's perspective at any rate! You have a real eye for putting things together and I am sure you will achieve your goal of being published this year. I hope that 2011 is a healthy and happy one for you and your family :-) x
