I've Been Published!








I am so excited! I just received my copy of 1ooo Handmade Greetings by Laura McFadden and my handcarved pug cards are featured on page 141.

Etsy had a call for entries for handmade cards way back in 2007 and this is the wonderful book that came from that project.

I am honored to be included with so many talented artists.

I am amazed that they are featured on a full page. :) Wow! Emmitt and I are doing the happy dance over here in the land of Pug Notes.

The cards are available in my Etsy store for only $8 for a pack of 4 with free shipping!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
