I was almost in tears!

I rushed to the scrapbooking store today, thinking "OMG, it's November, the magazine I'm in will be out" ... I bought the magazine, went to the car where dh was waiting and flipped through it to find my page ...

And flipped ...

And flipped ...

And didn't find it. So I looked two more times and still couldn't find it. I thought they changed their minds and didn't want it anymore, I was so upset ...

Then I got home and checked the email they originally sent, and they asked for it for December's issue, not November's.

Feeling sheepish ... Just wanted to share my emotional drama of thinking they dropped me! lol

LOL, I'm not laughing at you, but with you. Sounds like something I'd do too! I'd be all crushed and down, then think "all that emotional distress over nothing!" Sorry Trina, but I bet you'll be looking forward to next issue even more now.

Oh no! Like others have said, I could totally see myself doing that. Which magazine, so I can look for it in December too.

It's Scrapbook Trends - I didn't realize how expensive it was til I went to get a copy (almost $20!!!) Even though I'm not in it, I found some really good ideas just flipping through!

Almost $20? Is that because you are in Canada? I'll have to check out how much it is here and maybe with shipping, it might be less for you. OF course you wouldn't want to do that next month, because if you're like me....you're gonna want to pick a copy up the day (ok, the MINUTE) it hits the shelves. :)But maybe in the future....

Not sure if it's because I'm in Canada - most of our books and magazines only have one price since last year when our dollar went over the US one (although it's in the tanker again). It was 18.95 + GST (5%) ... I know they'll send me a copy, but like you I want to see it the MINUTE I can lol.

First of all OMG I did not know you were getting published! CONGRATS!!!
2nd I get that mag it is more like a book and I believe it is 17.95 here. Can't wait to see the Dec issue. Did you already post the page? I would love to see it.

Yes, it's more like a book, it's kinda cool ... not one I normally purchase though, for the price.

Here is the page again (although I don't think I'm supposed to have it posted anywhere, but they won't know!)
