Am I childish?

You should see my face right now. I look just stupid happy. Like a big child I can't hold back. I need to share with you and the world.

Some time ago I was contacted by Joanne Tinley of DaisyChainDesigns. She is a regular contributor to Beads & Beyond magazine of United Kingdom. Would I be interested in having my blog featured in the magazine? Well, what do you think I answered ...
I loooove what Joanne wrote about me! I did not involve myself, and I have not known what she would say, wanting it to be a surprise. Oh, I feel so honored! Thank you Joanne!

I knew the feature was gonna be in the January issue. But when would it be out in the shops? So today I was contacted by a lovely English lady by the name of Anna, who had received her copy today since she is a subscriber, and had found out about my blog via the feature. She then also kindly sent me the photo above. Isn't that just the kindest. I have to mention also that Anna runs an online bead shop by the name of Big Bead Little Bead. I've looked around. And hey, you do not want to miss it. And especially not the art beads section. I am definitely gonna roam around there soon.

And here's a little secret also, or not really actually ... I have sent off a few pieces to submit to a particular magazine today. 6 different pieces it was, to be more exact. That is way exciting for me. First time actually. I am really happy with them all, and I am kind of dying to show them to you, because I am so childlessly proud again. But you know, that is a no no, until I know if they are accepted. And if they are, until the magazine is published.

All my best,
Malin "de Childish" ;-)

Congratulations Malin! Don't forget us little people when you have >1000 followers!

I know your pieces will be accepted because you are super creative and your jewelry is very original and beautiful! You have every right to childishly wallow in your accomplishments!

Roxi said...

Congrats! You deserve the recognition. :) I'm glad you went for it and submitted some more designs to a certain magazine! You never know unless you try. ;)

Congratulations! You deserve to be smiling, and doing a little dance of joy!

I'm so glad you've seen it Malin - and more importantly, that you like what I wrote! I have such a tight word limit that it's always difficult to as much as I want to, but I think the pictures say so much anyway.
Good luck with the submissions! I'm sure they'll love them.

Grattis! Så roligt -- och välförtjänt -- att du och din blogg blev uppmärksammad i tidningen. Örhängena är så snygga. Och de kommer säkert att locka många till din blogg, vilken inte kommer att göra dem besvikna.

Lycka till med dina inskickade bidrag! Hoppas att vi snart kan få se dem i tryck.

How exciting Malin! I get that same giddy feeling anytime my work is recognized. Congratulations!

How exciting! Not childish at all!
It's it great to be happy about something you created! I know what you mean about wanting to show what you made but can't. I think that is why I haven't submitted anything. I wouldn't want to keep in under wraps for so long. I love seeing new designers in Bead Magazines, keeps them fresh! Best of Luck!!

Congratulations Malin!! You are so deserving. I feel sure you will be accepted for mag publication too!! So happy you shared all this with us.

Alice said...

How exciting!!! You're not being childish at all. If we can't feel joy from all the gifts that come our way, well life would just be dull. I work with children in our church, and I absolutely love to see that wide-eyed wonder, that absolute joy, when they see something that makes them happy. I wish we adults could still capture that, and maybe the world would be a better place.

Congratulations, and keep that lovely smile in our face.
