There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes. ~William Makepeace Thackeray
In addition to reading and crafting, I particularly enjoy writing. In earning my college degrees, I’ve written more research papers than I can even count. However, lately I’ve had the urge to “flex” my writing skills and try some new genres. I was thrilled when the editors at Mary Jane’s Farm asked me to write an article for their January/February issue. I had the opportunity to interview an accomplished quilter, Jennifer Rodriguez, of All Things Belle. My article tells her story and encourages readers to try their hand at paper-piece quilting. I hope you will check out her blog as well as her Etsy store and perhaps try one of her quilt cards. They are a miniature work of art and a little package love that anyone would be honored to receive. The magazine is a lovely mix of organic and green living ideas, crafting, recipes and personal essays. I didn’t realize that the magazine had hit stores until I saw it on the rack at the grocery store this evening. ( I absolutely adore the cover! Isn’t it gorgeous?) I can’t describe how thrilling it was to see my article in print, and I hope it is the first of many more writing opportunities to come.
If you’re visiting my blog today as a result of seeing my article in Mary Jane’s Farm, I hope you’ll come back to get a sneak peek of the latest books I’m reading, as well as my latest crafty endeavors.
