My First published design!

Can you believe how excited I was when I received my latest issue of Handmade magazine in the mail yesterday? My first project to ever be published is in next months issue, so I excitedly turned to the back page just to see if I got a mention for my prjects and low and behold there is the most gorgeous photo of my countdown cubes! I literally started screaming! hehehe

My little man got quite a shock to see Mummy and Nan bouncing up and down with excitement :)

I took a quick piccy just to show you. My fellow Gumnut Judith Tetley also got a mention, so now the countdown begins till I get my hot little hands on the next issue! I'm so excited! Can you tell? :) To explain the project, there is 3 cubes two have numbers so you can countdown from 32 days until - Your Birthday, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Australia Day and Our Holidays, My kids are constantly asking how many sleeps till this or that, so now we can countdown to more than just Christmas :)

Cherub #2 also just loves stacking them up and knocking them over again. Little man also likes to use them like a pillow :) hehehe Have a great day! I'm still up on a cloud!
