It was a normal Monday at work.  Only 2 more get-ups until the Easter holidays and I arrived home ready to chill out with a brew, a choccie biscuit and a magazine.  As I opended the door I saw the familiar grey plastic post bag that contains my new issue of Simply Homemade magazine - my day, brew and choccie biscuit just got a little bit better! So, after feeding the creatures and kicking my shoes off, I sat down to browse through the pages of my beloved magazine and was looking forward to examining the free gifts and taking a peek at possible future projects. 

As I was scanning the pages for articles of interest I arrived at the letters page.  How surprised I was to find a picture of my gorgeous handbag and my email to them staring out at me.  SQUEAL!!!!!  (I feel I am permitted to use capital letters and exclamation marks here) 

I had written this email way back when I got my first ever issue of the magazine in my excitement, and sent a picture of my bag as I thought they may like to see it.  I never in a month of Sundays thought it would actually be published.  I was so excited and pleased.  It is great to see your work in print.

If you would like to see my printed email then it appears in issue 3 of Simply Homemade magazine and, if there happen to be any crafty magazines out there that would like a new writer then please contact me! 

For those of you that haven't seen it, here is said handbag!

Autographs from this handbag can be obtained by emailing thegingerbreadbunny@hotmail.co.uk
