Jodi Ohl--Now a Cover Girl!

A little Birdie told me that my Sweet HeART magnets made it to the latest cover of Cloth Paper Scissors!!! Whoooohoooo! See them up in the top right hand corner. How cute!!!
Now I can say I'm a cover girl! LOL

Click here and you can see the Table of Contents, another picture of my magnets is on the bottom right!!
What a HUGE HUGE thrill! I haven't seen the copy yet, it looks like it's just starting to hit the subscribers so the artist copies should be coming soon. I can't wait! I wrote the how to article and even took a few of the photos of the step by step process. Who'd a thought that last year at this time I'd be sitting here saying that I've been published 2x in one year as well as featured in a few shows? It's all kind of surreal!

What's next? Well, I've already submitted another article for something a bit different than my normal stuff-so stay tuned for that. Hopefully it will get accepted. I also worked on a project with several other artists that included an article and a round robin artful endeavor--can't say more than that. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it all works out that this project is featured in an upcoming issue of another favorite magazine...stay tuned for more details!

I'm siked!!! I sold a few more originals in one of my B&M shops this week as well. I just happened to stop in and the owner jumped up to tell me the good news. Now all but my big piece in my Carolina Blue collection has been sold:
Carolina Blue friendsscan1
Sold--print available
carolina Blue 'family'1
Sold-print available

Sold-ACEO prints available

December 2008 has turned into the best month yet for sales -what a boost to my confidence!!! I'm still a long way off from leaving my day job, but I'm closer to that dream than I was yesterday! It's going to be hard to top this year, but I sure am going to give it the old college try! I have a BIG project I want to dive into but it's going to take along time for that to come together but you never know--the discussion next New Years may be even bigger and better!

Here's to a 2009 that's full of great things for all of us who are shooting for our dreams--any dream, any goal, any wish--it can come true!!
