I thought it would never get here!!!!!






Treadmills
AND
When it came it was a full SEVEN PAGES!!!
OMGoodness
It was sort of like waiting for your child to give birth...
on a much more shallow level:)
We looked at every airport news shop in K.C. and Vegas.
I stalked every hotel news shop.
I was sure it must be at my doorstep when we arrived home...
BUT
NO
and for the first time in our lives.....we had the mail stopped!
Considering we arrived home at 8:00 pm.
I had to settle for looking online at Somerset Studio website one more time!
There it was....
at least the cover was available for me to see!
That wasn't much...
but better then nothing:)
Next morning.....first thing.....I ran to the post office.
When the mail basket was given to me I anxiously glanced to see
if there was anything that looked like a box from Somerset!
I didn't see anything that big (in the past they have sent my five copies....yes five
in a UPS box). I ran to the car in the rain carrying the box filled with hope:)
THERE....
there among all the junk mail, bills, subscriptions etc. was a large
manila envelope:O The return address was the one I was hoping for...YEA!
I sat in the car for almost 45 minutes tearing open and magazines and pouring over
my babies in print:)
I had also received some other wonderful things that couldn't wait for the drive home. That explains the 45 minutes:):):)

Wow Linda!!
They did a wonderful job with the lay out and the cover looks grand too! I will be getting mine as soon as possible:) I bet you will be beaming for days (weeks/months:) over this. I really enjoyed your article and art in the 1oth Anniversary issue of Somerset Studios also. Magical, beautiful stuff sweetie! I've added your link and look forward to visiting often.
