How Could You Be Any More Famous Than You Already Are?

You may ask me. And I will answer, " by being featured in the Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts issue. " Twice. Two times. Two projects. Dos. Hey do you like those Dos Equis commercials or what?


Anyway, you open the mag and there is my star tag on the second page of the table of contents. Applause.
And then in the middle of the mag there it is again. Why so popular you may ask? I have no
idea. In the past two years I have sold a total of one (1) set of star tags in my shop. I know.


Then around page 82 there are my Christmas treat cups. I also sold only one (1) order of these but still, they were only listed one year.
Of course there was one page that bore a completely unflattering photo of me and some boring bio blah, blah. I sent them an okay photo of myself...they lost it. I sent another okay photo of myself, they lost it. So I was forced at the last minute to take a horrible photo of myself without makeup and unstyled hair. They promised they would air brush it. Liars .I'm not including that page you'll have to buy it to see me. You know you wanna see.
I'm kidding about it like it was no big deal but it is really cool to see your stuff in a mag. A famous mag. ..... The only mag you'll ever buy again. ......
That's right.



Thank you Meredith publishing, I was only kidding about the air brushing but hey, you could have tried something :)

I can honestly say that your celebrity has not gone to your head! You are as humble as a bean taco!

Jean Knee said...

If there is one thing I am very, VERY good at, it's being hunble ;)

Jean Knee said...

Whatever, Jean Knee. I got featured in Ugliest Mom Magazine and Pathetic Blogger:The online issue in the same month.

Beat that!

I saw Jean Knee's naked crafties in a magazine centerfold!

Scandalous! Scandalizing! Crochet some cover-ups for them there star ornament thingies. It's not right nor natural that they should be nude like that.

Super Happy Girl said...

Erotic crafties?

Oh Jean Knee, do tell.

Jean Knee said...

I don't know.


I never do crafts in the nude.

usually.

Crafters are made fun of in these parts, but it's really because we're all just jealous....
