Am I Dreaming ?


Well I sure feel like I am and that's because something so exciting has happened for me and I just can't believe it ~ Country Sampler will be here Dec. 16 for a photo shoot for the 2009 or 2010 Christmas issue. I'm just to excited ! What a huge honor ! I've always dreamed that someday I'd get to have my house in that magazine quite a few years down the road maybe~ like when I have my own home, but if they want to come now that's fine with me ! Now I'm just looking around at everything thinking that I need something here or there and what I need to change in different spots, but there really isn't a whole lot I can do besides replace a couple of broken blinds, maybe make some ornies for my bedroom tree, and sew some muslin tiers for my dining room. I also need more green picks ! Michaels here I come ! I'd like to make another snowman too ! To much to do ! I better get busy !
So, Linda and Karen, what was the day like when you had your photo shoot ? Any tips for me or anything that would be helpful for me to know ? Just curious ! I'm nervous ! Hope everyone has a great Thursday !

AnnaSam said...

Janae,
Congrats Girl!! But, I knew you would be in there! because about 2 weeks ago I went and looked at all your picks and got so many ideas from you on how to decorate my home. And as I was going thru them i thought to myself "Wow, I wouldn't doubt if Janae doesn't end up on CS"
I'm not kidding! What a blessing Janae. You deserve it and thanks for being such an inspiration!
