Published!

Hi! I'm so excited to announce that my first ever page was published in the magazine! It was Scrapbook Trends magazine, September Issue, page 25. I was waiting for this moment for so long and it is finally here:
I was pretty cool and exciting to see my name in the magazine, but then I paused for a moment and thought - nothing will ever be compared to the joy that will fill those hearts who will see their name in the eternal book of God! It will be beyond every imagination... And that's the book I want my name in!

I believe you can turn almost any everyday activity into a mini-vacation, if you put your mind to it. This past Labor Day we did just that. I wanted one of the bookcases for our kids room from Ikea, so we got up early in the morning and went on our mini trip.


We got there just a couple of minutes before store opening. Ikea restaurant serves FREE breakfast every Monday. How nice is that? That's where we started our "shopping":


And did some shopping. Kids loved checking all of their decorated rooms. I did too. My husband thought there's more interesting stuff in the world than this, but he was pretty patient with us.


For labor day weekend they also served FREE lunch for kids! So, we finished our shopping with a nice little lunch.


It turned out to be a very nice day spent together with our little family.

And for now, have a nice rainy day! Seems like there's enough for everyone!

    Thank you sister! Your not-so-famous scrapbooker works in a bigger scale project this week, so I can't submit anything... unless it will go into HomeDecor magazine... :)

  6. haha, Duska! That was my favorite pizza ever when I was pregnant. It just had to be from Pizza Hut every time! A teper my fave is Dominoes. Anyway, congrats to Anya! Like I've said before, you're super talented and every time you create anything it's always perfect. No wonder your work is being published. If you would've went to Ikea here in Philly, you would've been 20 minutes away from my condominium and could have stopped by to say hi. But since you went to Baltimore, never mind, lol
