Ah Shucks! I Made the Cover!

Well slap me silly and call me Billy Bob, I made the cover of Better Homes and Gardens! It may be a small little insert but there it is. Wow who would have thought that me Pam Gracia would EVER land on the cover of anything? The entire magazine is worth buying. Johanna Parker, a fellow PFATTIE and friend, has some awesome candlesticks in the magazine along with other designers who have great ideas for the upcoming Holiday season. This year they combined Halloween and Christmas....Good Job BHG!

Now why on earth wouldn't you make the cover, Pam? In my opinion, I think one of your creations should have graced the entire page!!!!!!!!!!
