Hi everyone,

I'm finally starting to see glimmering hope of spring; Even the birds are starting to sing a happier song. As we prepare for Marburger, I know spring will be here in the blink of an eye! We are so excited that we are invited to be in a gorgeous, European Magazine, "Selvedge". (www.selvedge.org). Magnolia Pearl will be featured in the July, 2010 issue. It's an expensive magazine but worth it, as each issue is like an art book. Thank goodness for the few good magazines still available. What a treat to make a cup of hot tea, prop your feet up in your cozy chair with down pillows and drift away to the land of "magazine make believe"! I think it's one of the few escapes women truly treat themselves to; a mini vacation. So, Jo, if your reading this, thank you for your awesome "Where Women Create" (www.wherewomencreate.com) masterpiece. We all love it! Sometimes it's the little things like a great magazine that keep the madness of the world from making me completely crazy.
A little beauty goes a long way these days!
Love to all of you,
- Pearl

I LOVE magazines and it is true that they are like a mini vacation. I'm thankful to Jo for putting together such an awesome supply of eye candy!

Thanks for sharing your awesome words of wisdom!
I just got my newest issue of WWW in the mail today...its 10 degrees outside and I am indeed curled up in the chair with that piece of wonderfulness! ( LOL Is that a word?)

I will look for the other gorgeous magazine Selvedge too!
I wonder if it will be at Barnes and Noble?

I love technology, computers and new gadgets (like the Ipad) so much, but there just isn't anything like the feel of the pages in your hands...its like picking up an old friend, and having them sit down beside you! For that I am very grateful!

Have a Blast getting ready for Marburger! I would give my left arm to go there someday! Hee hee

I'm just wondering if I've ever told you how much I enjoy you!...meaning your style, your designs, your spirit, your blog, just you...being...marvelous you! You inspire me creatively and spiritually. Just wanted you to know that! Please let us know where we can purchase this magazine you speak of, Selvedge. I want a copy! Wish I could be at one of your shows someday...come to Ohio!

Oh my gosh, what a truly wonderful thing to say. I am honored and humbled with your graciousness.

I would love to take credit for WWC but it is truly the women that work so hard, give so much, and inspire so many that grace our pages that make us great.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Congratulations and I agree! The magazine can be such a source of inspiration, current trends and visual delight. I am glad to know of this and love WWC and All things Stampington and Co. as well. Good luck and blessings dear.

I so love your amazing creative talent...but also your heart. Thank you for remembering Haiti and for reminding your readers to be grateful, and loving those around us with abandon.

I just discovered your blog today - It's beautiful. Before I continue poking around, I wanted to congratulate you on making it into Selvedge. I have Selvedge on the brain lately (wrote a review of it a few days ago on my blog). It's a wonderful publication and I can't wait to see the issue featuring Pearl! Again, congrats!
