Modest, *hair toss*, moi?

I read on someone's WOYWW post that they thought I was quite modest, so this should put paid to that impression for ever!
WOYWW is in print - published!!  So indirectly, it's all about me!  (I can turn anything to be about me, gentle reader - it's a spectacularly useful skill.)
This is issue 4 of Featuring Magazine.  You can find details of how to pre-order etc, on their website: http://www.featuringmagazine.com/

Well, to be honest, I'm in it, but the article is about WOYWW and the global outreach it has achieved..that is to say, the article is beautifully illustrated by some of your desks and and they really are from across the world.  There was a proper interview process to go through and I'm really delighted to tell you that very little editing has been done of my long and tedious answers, so you can read about me at my most erm, lyrical.  There were a few hard questions too - especially in view of the amount of research that Featuring had done...they know more about this blog than I do!  
If you do catch an issue, my word, be sure to dip in and out of the real art parts of the magazine, it's amazing. If you're into journals and mixed media, you probably don't need to have this recommended to you - you'll know about it already.  If like me, an ATC is about the closest you'll get...have a looksee, it's fascinating and inspiring.  The mail art makes me want to get inky fingered - useful, use-able and gorgeous.  What's not to like!  
So that's the biggest big up of the week for me, and it's only Sunday.  Watch this space as they say..more *hair tossing* will follow, whenever I can find a reason!

Whoop Whoop

I ALWAYS said you should be published. YEY - it happened, and not before time. You are allowed all the hair tossing you can muster up - you've certainly earned that privilage...

Can I please have your autograph now lol.... you should actually buy a few of these mags - sign them, then flog them on your blog - you'd make a fortune lol....

NEED to see it... gonna look how I can get ahold of it.

big massive, gushing for you hugs
