Martha picked my necklace!!!

I just got an email from Michelle Toglia, an assistant editor at Martha I had submitted some of my Halloween creations to their contest and tho I didn't win, they liked my necklace so much they featured it in their picks for 13 Best of Halloween Creations for 2010. I'm so psyched I can't sit still!

Here's a link to the gallery....

and a link to my necklace in the gallery....

So this is totally cool and a real boost for me, creatively. Considering I start chemo this week and have a long tough road ahead of me, this really cheers me up.

Ladies, this has really made my day/week/month! Go check it out!


  1. That is so exciting Ann! I can certainly understand your excitement.

    Best of luck as you begin this arduous journey. We are all here to support you.

    Best wishes ~ La

  2. How EXCITING!! Congratulations!! Totally fun stuff!

  3. Geez, Martha! It's about TIME! (Love you, Mom!)

  4. YAY!!!!! Great news Ann, so glad they recognized how talented you are:)

  5. OK -- someone played a trick on me and Halloween is OVER. I just wrote out a comment and it disappeared (haha). I have to give you a big CONGRATULATIONS! Your necklace looks amazing. What a huge honor to be on the Martha Stewart site as one of her top picks. That is amazing! Great job and keep crafting. You are so talented. If you're bored, link something to my party tonight or tomorrow. Now we'll see if this comment goes through. Martha said it was a TREAT, not a trick! LOVE THAT! Do you think I used enough exclamation points?

  6. Congratulations! The necklace is stunning. Keeping you in my thoughts.

  7. I can see why they picked it, it is darling and different! Congratulations!


  8. Oh my gosh girl, you're famous now! What a fun thing to happen to you! You are so talented and I am not surprised at all that they would pick something that you made with your own little hands!
    You will be in my prayers this week as you begin Chemo.
    Hang in there and keep that smile on your face!
    Hugs and Blessings- Tete
