I'm So Honored!

In July I found out that I was selected for Early American Life's 2009 Holiday Directory of Traditional American Crafts. I submitted original painted silhouettes with an Early American Christmas theme for consideration by the judges. So I was so pleased to be chosen for this honor and to be included among the names of so many extremely talented artisans.....I'm a little star struck reading through the artisan's list. There are so many artist listed that I've admired for years.

And this week a packet came from Early American Life and was filled with all sorts of goodies!
They sent complimentary copies of the issue, counter cards, and hang tags to add to artwork I send to customers.

If you aren't familiar with the publication, Early American Life, here is a link to their website. You can search for shops that sell the publication in your area, or subscribe online there too.

Thanks to my in-laws, I've been a subscriber for several years. They give me a subscription for Christmas each year, and now I'm thrilled to be in the Holiday Directory!

Some of us have known of your gifted creativity for some time.
I shall have to get a copy of EAL and take a peek... or better yet I can just look upon a shelf and glance at my pumpkin lass in her darling blue apron.
Congrats Suzanne.

I have LOVED Early American Life since the early 80's. It was SO good then! I always kept their annual directory of artist and craftspeople. So cool that you are in it! Congrats! I will come and visit your blog more often!
