Thankful (things I love} Thursday...

~ LOVER OF THE WRITTEN WORD~

I recently had the honour of having an apron I designed published in Volume 3 of Apronology.

The quote "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me" by C.S. Lewis was my inspiration and I designed the apron around it.
When I sent in my submission, I wrote about how much I love quotes and the written word (which anyone who has stopped by my little blog knows) :-). I was however, shocked, and so impressed, when a few months ago, the final layout was sent to me!! The book & tea theme was incorporated with a bookcase holding vintage books in the background, and tea set in co-ordinating colours to the apron :-)
Special Thanks to Christen Olivarez and staff for this wonderful opportunity. The care and detail to packaging when submissions are returned also shows their amount of respect for the artist's work. I am always so impressed & Thankful with the thoughtfulness shown.

Congrats!!! What fun. I have wanted to purchase this magazine before but have never seen it on the stands. I will have to see if I can order it.
