Excitement in the Air!

Back in September of '08, Doll Crafter and Costuming Magazine asked me if I would like to create a doll for their magazine. Without any hesitation, I said "Yes!" then about peed my pants. They were interested in a Springtime Raggedy Ann Doll, with pattern, to share with their readers in the April of '09 issue. The April issue is ready and should be in the hands of their subscribers now and on newsstands by the end of February. I received an advanced copy and excitement cannot begin to describe on how I feel! Amazed, In Awe, Who Me?, Happy..... I could go on and on here, but I won't! LOL And to be in an issue with Elinor Peace Bailey is just over the moon!
I thought I would share with you some of the pictures.....
The Cover

Table of Contents

From the Editor

And the Intro to the Pattern

And Lastly, the real picture I took

Thank you all for letting me share the news with you!
I will be having a giveaway soon and the lucky person who leaves a comment will have their name put into a hat and the winner will receive a signed copy of the magazine!

Have a Primsical Day!

Kathy
