I wanted to share Sarah's latest magazine project and profile from this months 'Australian Homespun' magazine.
She's too humble to blow her own trumpet so I'll gladly assist in blowing it for her!

I say 'latest' project because this is her second this year but she has another due to hit the stands soon in 'Australian Dolls, Bears and Collectibles' and a Christmas project in the works too for 'Australian Bear Creations'...this girl is in demand! :dance: :dance:  :clap: 
Congratulations to you Sarah. If anyone deserves recognition from the magazines it's you. Making these things happen when you are so ill is ten times harder for you than the majority of us, which makes it all the more satisfying seeing it all paying dividends for are a truely an inspiration. bear_flower
Way to go

You are TOO kind!  Seriously, I am blushing over blushing!!  And I am not that humble..I did send it out to my email buddies lol.  It is all really exciting and I am so grateful for all of these projects keeping me so busy throughout the last year.  If I didn't have to do this work I think I would have just stopped trying with all the complications this year.  So although I have complained about all the work I have to do, it has really been a blessing in I am so glad to have had it...and now they are coming out, it is so worth all that effort and is so exciting!! you just wait till your magazine projects and profiles come out 12E9EC11.GIF what will I write to embarrass you hehe lol

Thankyou all so much for all your support...You are all wonderful and the best friends ever....mwahhhhh 02A87E112.GIF

Thanks so much again everyone  bear_flower  I didn't get back here yesterday as I had a busy afternoon with my cardio appoint that I've been talking about lately, its been a Eeyore'ish kind of day for me(ho hum bear_cry ), but as always coming on to TT has change my mood and reading all the new messages today on this post has really made me smile again...thankyou all so much for your support  :hug: it means so much truly!! bear_wub

I don't think I mentioned that Daniel was requested to be a child safe bear, don't know if you can read that in the was a challenge as I couldn't use beads or glass eyes or cotter joints...and knowing that he would be in a magazine I was really worried about posing etc...So this has been my biggest challenge yet, and after all of everything I am so glad I'm finished with projects and profiles until the end of the year!!  No deadlines yippy!! As Lisa was saying its a great way to support the Australian magazines and I am really glad they asked me.  I would still be sitting on my fat posterior otherwise I think with none of this happening...absolutely no get up and go in this department!!
It's funny how things work sometimes isn't it...things feel like they can't get any worse and then a happy email comes and it just helps balance out the bads in life...I've heard the same thing happen to so many others who are going through bad stuff too...somehow the universe balances things out...I know I'm not the only one to have projects and things like this happen, but I just really count my blessings...maybe too much and too emotionally lol.  I know I'm a sop, but a grateful sop bear_tongue

Anyway, just wanted to reply to a couple of messages....

Lisa, yes sis is happy for me too, we are really close so our sucesses are really each others :)

Kim...haha...thanks for embarrassing me again!!!!!  lol

Jane, thankyou for the card sweetie  bear_flower

Daphne, your autographed copies are on the way so funny doing that lol  bear_tongue

Mwahhhhh!!!!  Thankyou each of you, you have all made me smile and be thankful for all the good things I have.  Life is good.... bear_flower
