October 2009, CakeJournal.com, blogged a post about a decorating book to be published in 2010 and submissions were requested. Nervous to submit anything, I went ahead and sent my information and website. Knowing how much talent is out there in the world, I honestly thought I was going to be passed. As deadlines rolled by, I was sent emails from the creators of the book asking for pictures and more information. February was the deadline for submissions and that’s the last I heard of anything about the book.
March & April rolled by and didn’t hear anything, so I assumed I didn’t make it. In May, I got an email from the creators asking for clarification on my information. June & July rolled by. Then a few days ago, I, nervously, decided to send a quick email to the creators to see if any of my work was picked for the book. I received a wonderful response letting me know that an email was sent back in March that a few of my pictures were picked for the book.
As I think back now how nervous I was to enter, I’m even more nervous to see the book. Just being chosen to be part of this collection is very humbling and very grateful for the opportunity.
Thank you to Cakejournal for her post and, of course the creators of the book, sisters, Sarah & Gina, for letting decorators shine.
Book will be published in November 2010. Pre-order now here.
