A dream come true :)

When I walked into a craft shop in the States several years ago and saw this magazine, I fell in love!  I LOVE magazines and with this one together with it's sister mags Scrapbook Trends and what was then Paper Trends - I was in heaven.

The copies of the mag did come over to our shores but they were £10 + per issue and when you liked all three, it got quite expensive and I had to stop getting them - although I still have all my copies now and still look back at them even now :)

So, when Redline Publications got the International licence for these mags and I could now buy copies in my local WHSmiths and Tesco's etc - I was happy once again - and just £5.99 too - woo hoo! (Soon to be £4.99 too I'm lead to believe!)

So, yes, several wishes were granted, but what was the dream?  Well, having been the Editor of several magazines in the past, I was extremely happy when I was asked before Christmas to be the new Editor of Cards Magazine - WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

So, the latest "Spring" issue has me at the forefront although there's no photo and if you didn't know how I sign my name, you wouldn't know it was me either unless you read the very small print! It's the same US content but with a splattering of UK info and that is the way that the readers (me included!) want it kept.

So....that is one of the things that will be keeping me busy when I start working from home :)  More info to follow on other bits - Enjoy!
