"Haute Handbags" and Me!

Dear Friends..... I have an article and a selection of my bags in the October edition of "Haute Handbags" published by Somerset Studio.

Last fall I decided, basically on a lark, to read the submitting process and see what was involved.  I took it step by step.  My husband photographed the bags and I wrote an article.  Sent it off, and what do ya know... I heard from them in about two days!  They wanted me to send my bags to them to shoot for  April's magazine.  Did all that, and then was pushed back to this issue.  So... here I am page 67!  If you get an opportunity, you can check out the article.  I found mine at Borders, but "Haute Handbags" is usually also carried by Barnes and Nobles.  I haven't gone over the entire issue yet, but if you like unusual and handmade bags, there's lots of fun and creative ones to see.  Most of them have "how to make" instructions.  Oh..... one more thing..... I bought three copies, but just checked the mail and Somerset sent me another.  So, if you would like me to send a copy to you, please leave a comment and I'll draw a winner next week (probably Friday).  Here's to a fabulous fall weekend!

Congratulations Dulcy, but I exhibit zero surprise as your work is gorgeous. They would be fools not to want to do a feature on you every issue!

As a long time admirer of your bags, it doesn't surprise me to see your work getting noticed. Isn't it nice to have a professional photog handy to take pictures of them?
I checked here in town and Haute Handbags is not carried by our Barnes and Nobles so to have a copy would be great!

OMGosh no wonder you have been constantly on my mind the last three days. Wow congradulations honey I am so excited and happy for you. I can not imagine having my work published like you have just had yours. lol...
Of course I have to have this copy and if I don't win I will be going to College Station on the 8th and they have a Barnes and Nobles.

Wow Dulcy! I'm so happy for you! I will definitely look for the magazine and take it to Anita's next week and show it around to the girls.

A Wild Thing said...

I must simply drop by more often, girl, you have been busy and published to boot...WOW!

But you deserve it, your work is wonderful, I'm especially drawn to the rug of your front door, that to me just says 'welcome, Dulcy lives here'!

You too have a zest for life and color and the beauty all 'round, it is good to have eyes wide open...or eyeballs on earrings...that's my next project, my 'Cracked in the Head' babies would approve...heehee!

Have a wonderful evening and congrats!
