Jenn's over the top, dreamy affair in NC last fall was published in this Italian magazine. Jenn deserves all the accolades and world wide attention she got for this, it was amazing.
Woo Hoo! I feel very America's Next Top Model in Italian Vogue! (Yes, I'm a sucker for all of those Top Model shows, ) But I have a feeling I'd be voted off the episode for that stiff pose and lack of "finding the light". And I'm more suited to be an Italian grandma making pasta than a sleek super model.
But hey! This is not something that I ever would have dreamed I'd see and I'm tickled pink about it. A photo of me in a European publication?

That is me in the top left, I was helping decorate for the event and put some of the decorations on my head. I do tend to do that sort of thing. In the bottom right photo, Dee Foust is wearing one of the crowns that I made (shameless plug! Tutorial available here ). That is beautiful Jenn strolling across the meadow in the larger photo.
I have wonderful memories of the weekend in the mountains, with great friends old and new. Thanks again, Jenn!
This pretty weekend was also covered in Sonia's Creating Vintage Charm, an indie magazine that is really well done. I think that the fairy tale interlude is probably being published in a zillion other magazines too, it was pure photo op, all the way through and the talented Tiffany was there to snap it up.
Seriously, there wasn't a spot anywhere that you didn't feel compelled to point a camera at. It was that beautiful.
Sonia and I got to sit together during craft day at Once Upon a Dream and hung out a bit during the weekend. I plan on being a regular buyer of her zine. As much as I love reading blogs, its nice to have an actual magazine in your hands to flip through too.
And she fills it with charm, just like the title.
Of course, I spent my youth watching "I Love Lucy" and that might have sunk in more than "America's Next Top Model" did.
On a completely different subject and one that ticks me off almost as much as losing Picnik, have you heard that Google Friend Connect is closing too? I'm wondering, will I lose the followers on that list? What do you know about it?
If you read my blog on Google Reader, but got there by subscribing on my side bar with Google Friend Connect, maybe you should subscribe directly on Google Reader, or I could just vanish from your list. I really am not sure what will happen. But I'd hate to lose you as a "Friend" even though Friend Connect is gone!
Beth has a good post about it here.
