NEWS FLASH!!!!!

I am so STOKED to share with all of my friends in blog land that after lots of trying, i am on the Magnolia Sweden dt.  Unfortunately due to postage etc i have not made anything for the upcoming issue of the Magnolia Ink, however am looking forward to submitting some of my work for the next issue.
I had applied so many times to get onto the dt that i was losing hope, my last try was about a month ago and i had almost forgotten that i had sent the email when i recieved an email from a person whose name i didnt recognise.  Having been warned by my son never to open up emails that you dont know the sender, yep, you geussed it, i opened the email and thank goodness i did.  At first i didnt see anything in the email pertaining to Magnolia, reading through the email i was sceptical, till i got to the bottom and saw MAGNOLIA SWEDEN, well i closed it and marked it unread, i couldnt believe it, then i reread it and closed and marked it unread, perhaps five or six times, and then it was like a bomb had gone off!!!! i was screaming and hyperventillating, and shaking and running around the room like a jibbering idiot!!!! i couldnt talk and couldnt explain to anyone.  So my DH, bless him says "they can hear you in Sweden"  Yes, yes yes, was all i could say.  He got it right first time, and then when i told him he was so chuffed for me, and made all the right noises.
I do hope you will support me on this new adventure and pop in as i am sure that this blog is gonna become A LOT MORE BUSY.
