Last fall, the the folks at Stampington contacted me wanting to feature my Bon Bon Cups in the Spring '08 issue of Somerset Life magazine. I was due to give birth to Sam in a week, but happily waddled into my studio and produced a dozen little baskets to submit for publication.
Well, the Spring issue comes out April 1st and it's a beauty! It is chalk full of wonderful articles by Rebecca Sower, Corey Amaro, Kaari Meng, Delila Jemaiel, Jenny Holiday and many other creative and talented women.
I made my first Bon Bon Cups after seeing a vintage one that inspired me a couple of years ago. (I can't believe it's been that long!) Who would've guessed that these little ditties would make their way into a magazine? You just never know who's watching and what may come to be. If you have an original, creative idea, consider submitting it to one of Stampington's wonderful publications. You never know until you try, and they are always seeking fresh and creative artwork for upcoming issues.
This is the second page of the article, featuring Cari Kraft's abundant creativity. She took an ordinary peat pot and made it extraordinary. Aren't these baskets precious?
Speaking of Springs treats, now that the kiddies are sleeping, it's time to get back to filling more plastic eggs for the big hunt this weekend........I'll be back on Sunday with Easter wishes!
