So the bad news is, that magazine issue I thought I might be in is out on newsstands and I'm not in it.
The good news is: the magazine was Domino (!!!!) and they contacted me. They somehow found me via the Internet or Etsy late last year and requested some paper samples. So, even though this month won't be my big magazine debut, they still have all my info and some samples and maybe I'll pop up in another issue somewhere down the line. Also good news: my former employer, Mod Green Pod is on the cover and featured in a few interior pages! This month is their "Green Issue."
I'm putting this in the You Can Do It! category because just the fact that I was seriously considered for a national magazine less than 6 months after starting my business is still pretty cool!
