Thank you Mollie Makes!



I've been subscribed to the gorgeous and uber-trendy '
Mollie Makes' since its launch; I allowed myself a tiny twinge of smugness when issue one sold out within days and began appearing on a certain well known auction site, selling for silly money. The publishers seem to have got the design and content bang on the button with the trend for crafting, vintage and blogging - I look forward to my monthly copy arriving with the same excitement I used to reserve for my weekly and much loved 'Bunty for Girls'




However, knowing what I did, I was even more eager to rip this month's copy from the hands of the terrified Postie (before he could ram it into the letterbox) - allow me, if you will, a little preening - look who is on page ten - look, look look!!! Ooh, are those one or two of my little things featured there?



Talk about headless with excitement.




(Boastfest over, thank you for your indulgence).

How exciting to be featured in a magazine! I haven't come across Molly Makes so must look out for it next time I go to town.

Caroline B said...

If you are half as excited as I was when my painting was in A&I, then you are probably still dancing round the house - well done, that's fantastic!

Natasha said...

Jumps up and down in excitement, I will have to go and purchase! xxx

Congrats! That's just wonderful!

Frances said...

Congratulations to you, Gretel...and also congratulations to Mollie Makes for having the taste to include your creations in the new issue.

I also have a couple of issues of the magazine, and will definitely keep a lookout for this issue...most likely it will turn up in a few weeks at Barnes & Noble.

That is marvelously exciting! And agreeing wholeheartedly with Frances -- by including your creations the editors at Mollie Makes have displayed their impeccable taste.

We were in Wetherspoons eating our breakfast bacon rolls on Saturday when I opened my newly purchased copy of Mollie Makes ..... and there you were!! I think it's a fabulous magazine - and I even know someone in America who buys it!
Malcolm was very impressed too, to see you mentioned!

Emm@ said...

I opened up my copy this morning and did a little squeal when I saw you in there. Did you submit something to be included or did they contact you?

Claire said...

Blimey, wait till I got my hands on that copy (months down the tack!!) I'll be stopping strangers in the street to show them your work Gretel........

They'll give me strange looks none more so than usual, hehehe.......

I have enjoyed the first 2 copies of Mollie Makes. So many gorgeous photos to look at. Everytime I open it up I find something new, to ooh and aah over

So excited for you and boast away. It will be wonderful to introduce your fab designs to a whole new audience.

hahahhaha.... no indulgence at all...just a bit of smugness on my own part...because I know you and your little guys personally. Well, not personally...but, you know what I mean...

I'd be just as giddy with excitement if it were me .... congratulations...you deserve it all....what fun!

Casey said...
