A Charmed Life

Yesterday, there was a flurry of excitement here when I found out that one of my prints, Flower Bouquet (also called Special Edition), is featured in the February issue of a wonderful online magazine called Matchbook: Field Guide to a Charmed Life. They cover past and present fashion, decor, the arts, travel and culture.

I noticed that people were coming to my Etsy shop from I will admit I didn't even know what that was. I clicked and found out that my print was included in a lovely two-page spread of art they have highlighted for Valentine's Day called 'Love Birds'. I'm in the same collection as an Andy Warhol poster for goodness sake! You can see the collection here. It's on page 30.

They've also included my print in their boutique with a direct link to my Etsy shop. I couldn't be more thrilled.

And as the icing on top of the cake, the February issue has the very handsome and talented American interior designer Nate Berkus on the cover.

You can read the whole issue here.  It's a beautiful magazine.
Field guide to a charmed life? It certainly felt that way yesterday! 


  1. Ahahah you silly girl (about the cover) !!
    Congratulations ! Your art deserves recognition & this is just a little sample !
    Enjoy the excitement & joyfulness, it does so much good to anyone !

  2. Just gorgeous (The guy on the cover) Tee Hee!! How exciting to suddenly find all this well deserved attention, it must be quite a thrill to be in the magazine like that, you would think they may have warned you? But it's fantastic all the same. :)

    1. He's a handsome fellow, isn't he? :) Thanks, Julie. A thrill for sure. I was in quite a state yesterday. :) Part of me wishes I had known beforehand but, you know, it's just fine. They were lovely about clearly identifying my work and linking it to my Etsy shop. I emailed a thank you to the magazine yesterday and had a warm exchange with one of the magazine's co-founders.

  3. Wohoo - big congrats to you!

    1. Thanks so much, Tina. I appreciate everyone's warm support.
