My Necklace is Away :(

I’ve just shipped out my “Here Comes the Sun” necklace to Bead Style Magazine and I’m more than a little nervous – not so much about having my necklace getting featured in a future issue of their gallery,  but about the whereabouts of my necklace.  Is that not absurd?

I realize we artists get attached to our creations but I didn’t think I’d react this way to what seems like such a positive thing.  My work is being featured in a well known magazine!  I should be jumping up and down with joy.  Instead, I’m nervous and worried about the necklace.   Will it get there OK?  Will I get it back safely?  When?  You’d think it was my child.

Well, maybe I’ll be more excited when I get more information about the feature itself.  Perhaps it’s just a delayed reaction to the good news I never expected to get.  Stay tuned….

Where are you now?

    Congrats! That’s really awesome. I know what you feel. When I did that drawing for the Yu-Gi-Oh! fan art contest for Shonen Jump magazine, I was sad to see my original drawing to leave me forever. I’m sure the Bead Style magazine will return your creation after all the exposure! ^_~

    I’m sure you’re right. It’s just paranoia on my part.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS! Woohoo! Good for you! Wow! The bead magazine feature is great news! I hope you get past your nervousness very soon and will enjoy the ride! ^_^

    Thanks Diane! I have a weird tendency to postpone reactions when I’m caught by surprise. I actually received the email from the magazine last week and just yesterday shipped out the necklace.

    Happy for your good news. I would also be anxious, but that’s the way that I usually operate. Give me something to worry about and, I’m there!
