The 2009 Glass Bead Calendar featuring 36 LampworkEtc. artists is available now!!
I'm Mrs. February... alongside Lisa Washburn & Lara Lutrick, two very talented glass artists.
Marjorie Oxman (Marjo on LE) posted a call for submissions on LampworkEtc. in December for a LE Member 2009 Glass Bead Calendar. I didn't see the post until the night before the deadline, so I contacted her right away & she said to send her my image & she would see if she could fit me in, no guarantees because she already had the layout pretty much figured out.
So I sent her 6 different images & told her to pick whatever one she thought would work & she eMailed me back immediately saying that the pictures were gorgeous! Yay! :o) So, needless to say, it shocked me to see my heart necklace kind of front & center in February! Isn't that crazy?
I received my copy today... it's absolutely gorgeous!! Marjorie put hours & hours into this calendar... I sent her this note today:
Marjorie.... my calendar arrived today & it is absolutely PERFECTLY put together!! You did a fabulous job & should be so proud of yourself!! Not only are the pictures beautiful to begin w/... but the way you coordinated the colors, themes, seasons, etc... it is so well thought out, it's quite obvious that you put your heart & soul into it.
