Spotted in Style at Home / A dilemma

I spotted one of my paintings in the May issue of Style at Home that just hit my mailbox. It's an older one, from a series I did of dresses. Just 5x7", it's little - a gold dress on a bronze background, on page 76. I was disappointed that I wasn't credited in the magazine (they are usually pretty good about crediting artists), but happy to see my work out there, even if it is from an older series.

You know, I was so excited to get the new Style at Home... It's my favourite magazine (closely followed by - almost neck and neck with - Canadian House and Home). This issue is super thick and I was practically racing home from the mailbox to crack it open, when I realized... the last third of the magazine is some 'yellow pages' business with wall to wall ads. This is above and beyond the regular glut of ads in the mag... . What a let down! Here I was, hoping for gorgeous pictures and interesting articles, and instead I got an extra hefty, environmentally unfriendly and definitely unwanted dose of ads?! Boo.

I also have a little dilemma... three reviews + giveaways to post, which one first? I do prefer to stagger the giveaways and already have two going on (go enter, won't you? there aren't many entrants yet and these are both great products. Links at top left) - but I also want to hook you guys up with happy winning goodness a.s.a.p.!

So, any votes? What are you eager for...
  • something manly for your honey?
  • something for your listening pleasure?
  • something for grown-up fun time?
Help me out of my dilemma!


  1. That's exciting that your art was in a magazine, but a little annoying that you weren't credited.

    And I'm going to go for something for grown up time for your giveaway ;)

  2. Hi! I can't remember exactly where I first started reading your blog, but I love it! And I absolutely LOOOOVE the dressers/nightstands. I'm an interior decorator and love to pull ideas from Style at home & Canadian House and Home too! :D

    ps. added your button to my blog at Come on over sometime and check me out :D

  3. I think you should at least contact them and let them know it was your deserve the credit.

    It's lovely by the way.

  4. Congrats on your listing in Style at Home. And I would like to receive grown up giveaways this time around. I want it, I need it. lol.
