BHG Holiday Crafts Feature

Hello friends, remember me? I'm popping in after my summer blogging hiatus to share a little news. I was contacted several months ago about having one of my projects featured in the 2015 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts Magazine. At first I thought I was being punked, but after corresponding with the editors I realized it was true. A magazine wanted to publish one of my crafts! say what!! I'm beyond flattered and still a little shocked.

The project they wanted to feature was a Christmas candle trio that I did  about three years ago. If you would like to see the original post click here. This is the original project

 I was a little worried because I didn't have the materials to make an exact duplicate, but the editors assured me that it would be okay to make them as close as possible to the originals. Here is the magazine version.

I like the way they styled the candles on the cake stand with the snow and gold acorns.

I still cant believe my quick and simple little project made it into a national publication!  It was an exciting day for me when I spotted the magazine on the newsstands. I wanted to show the pictures to everyone in the store but I resisted the urge.

If you pick up a copy my project is on page 71. There are a lot of really cute ideas in the  magazine. I'm thinking of trying my hand at a couple of them. Thanks for stopping by, Ill be sharing my news with the following linkups,
