Happy Happy New Year!


Aloha friends!  It certainly is a Happy Happy New Year! We are one week in and I am celebrating! I got a facebook chat window up yesterday from my friend Lynn and she said she got her February issue of Creating Keepsakes Magazine and saw Jalen’s smiling face! I was so thrilled! I knew the issues came up earlier than the actual month, but wow, Feb in the first week of January!! I asked her if she could send me a picture because I had not seen the article yet.  She did one better, she scanned the article and emailed it to me.  and I have to tell you, if you didn’t already know, I am a sap.  I felt like my heart could stop and I was so excited and felt like tearing up all at once!   When Troy got home from work, we immediately went out to the Navy Exchange to check out the Magazine Rack–and there they were, a neat stack of Creating Keepsakes :)  We snapped a few shots in the store and brought a copy out to Chili’s where we celebrated my first official paper magazine publication- a day I have anxiously awaited for a while!

Thanks to all of you who have supported and cheered me on, I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Love Love- Joscie, rhymes with bossy!

  1. Okay so I’m really a sap! I totally got weepy reading this! I’m so happy for you! I know we have never met but I do think of you as a friend. In fact when you mentioned getting pub’d on facebook I totally squealed with delight! When the hubs asked me about it I told him “my friend Jocsie just got published!”

    Even he was excited. :)

  2. I’m so happy for you Joscie! What a wonderful accomplishment. I know a lot of scrapbookers who dream of getting published. And now, it’s happened to you for real.

    If I were in your shoe, I probably would’ve bought every single CK magazine in the rack and framed at least one. How fun! Your kid must feel like a celebrity now, being in a magazine!!!

    I haven’t received mine in the mail yet, but I will definitely look for yours when I see it. If I only lived close (I’m in CA), I would probably get you to autograph it.

  3. Very cool!! I did the exact same thing, but your picture looks way better than mine did! I just got my magazine today, I’m going to grab it now and take a lookie loo… I’m so happy for you!!! {{{hugs}}}

  4. Evelyn, I kinda wanted to buy the whole stack! Isn’t that funny?! I only bought one copy, and I am expecting my regular subscription one in the mail and two from CK. :) and I do feel special, but not a celebrity :)

  5. How fun! When I saw my stuff actually published I actually found that the little name in black type under my project got me even more excited than seeing my project! Oh…and don’t be surprised if your dear family members ask you to sign their copies! LOL! Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations! I knew your day would come – it just took some time! I can’t wait to get my mag and see it in person! Have fun celebrating. : )

  7. Congrats Joscie! Can’t wait to get my copy. I’m planning a trip to the bookstore today. I might just have to hang out in the magazine section and take a peek.

  8. I am so excited for you my friend! That giddy feeling never goes away…every time it happens it feels just as good :o)
    I can’t wait to get my copy & see his adorable face in ‘person’.


    So now, you need to add a “press” tab to your blog!!!

    So, Jalen is now a supermodel? Will you have to roll out a red carpet when you drop the boys off at school?


    Ok now for the serious part, I am so proud of you! You are so amazingly talented, and I am so happy that you are getting the well deserved recognition! :)

  10. How EXCITING Joscie! Congrats for your first publication. I subscribe to Creating Keepsakes and will be looking for my issue to come soon ( I hope) . Not very fair. Subscribers should get them before the stores do. Can’t wait to see.

  11. Congratulations Joscie! Wow! Now I have to go out and get a copy so I can see your publication. I’ve never submitted. Not ready, but you keep on doing it. Great job!
