"Welcome Friends" By, Nancy Alexander
Welcome to Our Friends From Country Sampler Magazine…
WOW! What do I say? How do I start this post? This has really been a whirlwind of a week! First of all I turned 60 years old. And no…I didn't flip out because I did that a week ago. I thought I would get it over and done with so I could enjoy my birthday! AND I DID! Steve took me to Charlotte for a couple of days and we had a wonderful time.
I started getting calls yesterday and receiving emails for wreath orders. This is when I realized that the new issue of Country Sampler magazine was being put online. I have an ad in this wonderful magazine under Ladybug Wreaths. You can CLICK HERE to see it. That isn't all, though, because my wreath and my videos will be in a room scene when the magazine comes out. It is being mailed to subscribers right now, and will be in the news-stands Oct. 1st.
Welcome COUNTRY SAMPLER Subscribers!
It is GREAT to Have You Visiting With Me!
Here is a close-up picture of me with the wreath which is featured in Country Sampler. They also are featuring all twelve of my instructional, how-to videos! Exciting, huh? Well, it really is for me. I literally spend hours on this wreath. I wanted to feature one that has our "Wild & Woodsy" look for which Ladybug Wreaths has become known! And this one is HUGE! It is really filled with flowers, berries, greens, a bird house, red birds, blossoms and more! You can go to my website if you want to take a closer look at it: http://www.ladybugwreaths.net/wreaths-2/
My newsletter is being emailed out as I am writing this post, so make sure you are signed up on my newsletter list to get your copy on a six (6) session series about Decorating Small Spaces! Oh, and if you would like to see a copy of this week's newsletter (or any older ones) and were not on my mailing list, you can find them here: http://ladybugwreaths.net/news/
I featured a special section in this weeks newsletter about displaying pictures – you know – the ones we keep in boxes and want to display them, but just don't have room for frames everywhere!!??
Here are a couple of pictures of an idea I had to display some of my photos. I just LOVE it! Tell me what you think?? I used double sided tape and taped these wonderful black and white photos to one of my old windows. Yes, I do stop along the side of the road and pick up any old windows I can find…. LOL…. Also, I purchase any I can at yard sales. There are always wonderful uses for them, just as I used this one. I have it propped into a corner of a small niche in our home is perfect for displaying some favorite photos!
I really do want to thank all of my friends and customers for your emails congratulating me for coming back – yes…. I am BACK!!! And for all of the congratulations about my health and overcoming fibromyalgia! It is working! I am feeling so much better! God is so good and faithful!
I had a wonderful birthday and a very busy work week. Steve (my hubby) and I have been still working frantically to finish my new eBook. I can hardly believe that it is close to 200 pages long. I know what everyone must be thinking…how can you fill up that many pages without adding lots of fluff?? Well, we absolutely did fill that many pages with so much valuable information that my customers will be swept off their feet. I only have a few more pictures to add before we turn things over to our GREAT copywriter…so stay tuned!
