The Country Sampler Interview....

The interview is over...It lasted an hour and 15 minutes...Elizabeth was so easy to talk to and she told me this had been her favorite interview...We laughed and chatted and it was easy talking to her...I had already seen the pictures for the magazine and it was so thrilling to finally see them as they will be in the magazine...

After it was over I called Karen (My Colonial Home) ...I know I talked her to death!!..LOL...Sorry Karen!!...But I was so excited that everything went well and that I hadn't been so nervous as expected....So I rambled on and on and on!!!...and on and on!!!...and on and on!!!!....LOL...Sorry again Karen!!...hee hee!

As of right now the issue will go out the last of March for those that are subscribers and then at the store around the first of April....

We decided on a giveaway that I need to get to working on...I hope to have it done by this weekend, so I'm glad my x-stitch Valentine orders have slowed down...It's time to move on to springtime and everyday samplers as soon as all my orders are finished and shipped...I mailed out a bunch yesterday, so for those that have ordered and paid then they are on their way...

I also want to THANK EVERYONE that emailed and left me messages of encouragement and well wishes!!..You all are the best!!!

Ok, I'm down from my cloud and I need to do some laundry and take the homemade chicken pot pies out of the oven...Then get to working on the giveaway....Have a wonderful evening my friends!!~~hugs, Jen

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

LOL, too funny Jen...I enjoyed our chat as well...if dear DOUG hadn't come home and I had to unlock the storm door we would probably still be talking...LOL
You had me hungry for Chicken Pot Pie long after we hung up and guess what...I had Doug go to KFC for our dinner last night. He brought home my dinner and he had A POT PIE FOR HIMSELF....I could have cried! lol


I know your interview went great and everyone is so excited for you and over anxious for the issue to come out!

CONGRATS and Hugs,
Karen
