My Mask in Better Homes & Gardens

Hooray! I knew in an abstract sense that my mask would be in the October issue of Better Homes & Gardens, but it was thrilling to actually see it in the magazine.

You can vote everyday for your favorite mask at I also created three more projects for BHG that I’ll be sharing with you in October, and I’ll post instructions for making your own version of my mask next week.

    It was pretty cool perusing through my newly arrived copy of BH&G and seeing your mask in all it’s loveliness! You have definitely gotten my vote. Here’s to a sweep at the polls.

    How funny – This is the first time I’ve stumbled across your blog AND I was just looking at that magazine at my grandma’s house today AND I was thinking that I would totally vote for that pretty mask in the bottom left corner if I were to actually go vote. Now, I think I must.
