I Am Published! Second Chances To Pursue Happiness!

American Miniaturist Tutorial
May 31, 2012 Give Away

 I AM PUBLISHED!!!  Please click above link to view my JHoward collection which is not published in the magazine.  Have your volume adjusted just right to hear some wonderful music too.

Want your own copy of the magazine?  Just join my blog and leave a comment on this post to enter drawing for a chance to win your copy of American Miniaturist Magazine's June issue 110.  Using the tutorial I wrote for the magazine, learn how to make lacy dress shown in picture.  Deadline to enter is Monday, June 18, 2012 at 5:00pm Pacific Daylight time.  If I receive enough comments to equal my age, two names will be drawn.  If I receive enough comments to equal my age plus the ages of my two grandsons, three names will be drawn.  Only one comment per person please.  If the total number of comments are higher than the number I've selected for the three names to be drawn, all comments will be entered in the same drawing for a Bridal Gown Give Away as the fourth name to be drawn!  Let's have some fun! Good Luck!

Well, I love comments and give aways.

Published in American Miniaturist Magazine's June issue as an Artist is an exciting highlight of my journey! 

After breast cancer surgery April of 2000, along with prayer, making miniatures over the years has helped me cope with pain, disappoints and fears of being diagnosed with cancer.   Technically, from a scientific point of view, I should be dead by now.  But, here I am sharing my God given talent with you and loving it.  Second Chance!

Second chances come along all the time. It's up to us to recognize them."  Katherine Russell Rich
Pursue Happiness!!

"We are endowed with the right to pursue happiness, but nowhere is it guaranteed that we will catch it." If The Shoe Fits

I've had so many second chances to pursue happiness in life that My Journey to Celebrating Life is written to motivate me and to motivate you during your journey, no matter what. 

“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” Ecclesiastes 11:5 NIV

Again, thanks to all of you for joining my blog, leaving comments, entering to win the contests, e-mails and phone calls.  I wish everyone could win, but there is always a second chance to win something.  Don't forget to post your comment on the two give aways ending next week.  You must comment on the post that lists the dress as a give away to enter.

Love and Hugs
