I'm Being Published!

It's been a week full of emotions. On Thursday, my mom finally got her biopsy results which confirmed she has ovarian cancer. The good news is that it is treatable. It's not curable, BUT, it is treatable and manageable. She will begin her chemotherapy treatments on Tuesday this week. We have been blessed with the most wonderful oncologist so I feel that she is in very good hands and will be well cared for.

While visiting mom at the hospital today, I received an email from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine advising me that they wish to publish three of my layouts! Two for their fall issue which will be released September 1st and one for their website! Of course I was thrilled and quickly shared the news with my mom who was equally excited for me. I've never been published before so this is very exciting for me! Thank you to all my friends who encouraged me to submit my work. Hugs,
