This is the issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors that I have been anticipating!! Earlier this year I submitted several of my artist books to their 2011 Artisan search and to my delight, I was chosen as one of the five finalists in the "Art Journal/Book Making" category. While I wasn't chosen as the winner, I knew that one of my works would be spotlighted in the January/February 2011 issue. So...on Christmas Eve my copy arrived...I quickly opened it and found my work on page 30...spotlighting my "Windows" book along with the fabulous work of the other finalists. So exciting!!
I then put the issue aside and continued on with my family's Christmas Eve plans, not picking up the magazine until this morning. Giving it a closer look...I still haven't sat down to read it cover to cover....I also found that a response that I had given to a "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" Facebook posting was also in this issue!!! Wow! (This is on page 22.)
Looking through this month's issue, I can tell there are a lot of great articles and a lot of fabulous art spotlighted. I feel so honored to be included in with all this great work. Now to find some time to sit down to take it all in...but first I need to go out and buy a couple more copies!!!
