My Altered Couture May Feature!

Hello friends...
Look what came in my mailbox this week!!!!
The May 2011 issue of Altered Couture
And looks who's on Pages 66-69!
ME!!!!!
They had an Alice in Wonderland themed challenge.
I submitted my red felted children's vest with needle felted hearts and they accepted it for a feature.
It is being featured as a technique based feature so I got four pages!!
Good Grief...did I just say the word 'feature' three times???
I love the publishing house of Stampington & Co. because they trust me to write my own text.
The editor of Altered Couture, Beth Livesay, is a real doll to work with. 
This issue is chock full of creative and beautiful altered garments and accessories.
I love this skirt with lace embellishments, by Valentina Ferguson.
How about this refashioned tee by Disney Powless, for romantic bliss?
I'm in love with these restyled high heels by Pattie Donham Wilkinson
A cross between Alice in Wonderland and Marie Antoinette.
Love the before and after photos.
Yes...the shoes even have a matching choker...so feminine.
The whole magazine is filled to the brim with beautiful photos and the works of many talented artists.
Altered Couture is on the store shelves now, so go pick one up and enjoy.
Once again, I send out a huge THANK YOU to Altered Couture editor, Ms. Beth Livesay.
Thanks Beth, for making me look so good.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
