I'm going to be featured in Altered Couture Magazine!!

God is so good! I have just been informed that Altered Couture Magazine wants me to write an article about my hand painted shoes (my inspiration, materials, and step by step instructions on how I create my shoes)! I have to admit, I am super EXCITED! The minute I found out I was to be featured, I started jumping up and down and running circles around my husband while screaming. It was quite interesting.

This couldn't have come at a better time for me. I have been working on several new projects, from hand painted shoes to painted jackets and wedding dresses, and I have been trying to figure out how to advertise to get my name out in the world. Since I am newly married and fresh out of college, I don't have a large budget to work with. Obviously!

I prayed that God would somehow open a door and lo-and-behold, an idea popped into my head to submit a pair of my shoes to Altered Couture. It's the only magazine I've been able to find that allows anyone to submit ideas and it's all pretty much free. There's no telling if you'll get chosen, but it's totally worth trying for it. So, I did! A month passed and I was beginning to lose hope, when I got an email just this afternoon from Altered Couture saying that my hand painted shoes had been chosen to be featured! So, now were back to where I left off with me jumping up and down from excitement.

I will be writing the article within the next week and the article will be out in news stands and bookstores all over the US on May 1st! Thank you, everyone, for being such an encouragement and support for me as I've been trying to start my new business! I am so excited to see what God has in store for me!

    So many people are afraid to just take a leap of faith. You did , and look what happens!? :) I'm glad to hear it! I've liked your work since it caught my eye on Etsy a while back. :) You deserve it.
