All You Magazine Feature

Hello! Happy hump day eve! I've been covered in paint and busy finishing up Little B's nursery  AND getting started on his playroom. Funny how the first two rooms to be completed in our new house are both going to be for someone who is as small as garden gnome. I hope he remembers this someday when he goes to admit me into a nursing home. Hopefully before that day comes I get to work on my dream master suite, until then it's all about the kid, right? 

You want to know what else I've been busy doing? Staring at my February issue of All You Magazine
Next time you're standing in the check out line at Target trying to figure out what it was that you originally came there for you should stop and grab yourself a copy.

Not only is this magazine full of recipes, ways to save money, and fun DIY craft ideas, but you may also notice that I'm in it too! That's right, little ol' me! 

If you're thinking my feature is about how to save money or that I'm sharing my grandmother's famous pasta recipe then you will be deeply disappointed. I believe in money trees and I cook about three times a year.
Instead you can find me on page 11 sharing my "Heart of Gold" Valentine printables

Being featured in All You was a great way to start off my New Year.
Plus, this means I'm too famous now to have to clean out the diaper pail.
I just don't think my hubby got that memo yet!

Now for a little public service announcement for my fellow bloggers:
This was my first time being featured in a magazine, I mean as far as I know I don't think I'm gracing
the cover of any Sports Illustrated out there. Phew.
One BIG lesson I learned from this experience is to keep copies of ALL of your original blog photos--the ones with out the logos and watermarks. Some of you may be thinking "duh!" But up until recently I was deleting all of mine as soon as I posted them. There is nothing that drives me more bonkers than the chaotic, disorganized folders of images I have on my computer right now, so as soon as I posted them on Delightfully Noted I was taking pleasure in dumping them. My theory was if I ever needed them again I could grab them from my blog BUT a lot of times I make my blog pictures Pinterest-friendly with collages and text and watermarks and well, that's not exactly what magazines want.
Luckily, for once my laziness paid off and I just so happen to still have my original "Heart of Gold" pictures but I would hate for any of you to lose out on a fun opportunity in being featured because you went trash crazy on your photos! So if you were doing as I was, change your ways, NOW. You're welcome.
