Oh, Where Art Thou CARDS magazine?

Hey everybody! Well I'm a little upset today! Today was the reveal to my first published card in the CARDS magazine! I woke up and got dressed, I even curled my hair (so I could take a pic of me holding the magazine)! :) I called Hobby Lobby this morning to make sure that it was in, because I have to drive 45 min. to get there! I got to Hobby Lobby, to find out that they didn't have any! I look and looked everywhere! I went and asked someone who worked there and they didn't know, so they went and asked someone else. I took them the January copy and said, this magazine but the February issue. She said, if it's not on the shelf then we don't have it! I said, I called this morning and someone said ya'll did and I had to drive 45 min. to get here. Needless to say, I had to just walk away and leave! I know they were probably thinking, WOW she's upset over a magazine? But it had MY card in it! :) Anyway, me and Chance drove around to 5 other stores looking for it and still didn't find it! So I am hoping I will find it when I bring Chace to the dentist tomorrow, it is in another town, so we'll see if they carry it! I really just wanted to go to the store, get the magazine and search the magazine until I find my card! Weird I know, but that's just me! :) So nobody tell me what page it's on! I am a cheapskate and I won't pay for a subscription, so now I am paying for it, in suspense! Anyway, enough of my nonsense whining! :)

Ok, the card drive is now CLOSED! I received LOTS more cards today, but I am trying to get it finished so I can deliver them to the Hospital. So please DO NOT send anymore. Thank you all again, for all of your generosity! I have to make another order for the clear envelopes, this will be my 4th! After I have counted all the cards, I will post all the totals, but let me just say WOW, it is LOTS!!!!! :)
I added more gifts today, so you can go here to see them. Thanks Amy & Julie! :) I am going to try and do the drawings soon, so stay tuned for that! :)


Have a Blessed night!

I don't think you are weird, in fact, I would feel exactly the same way you would! I'm slowly getting the courage to submit and if any of my cards were accepted to CARDS I too would have to drive a long way to find a single copy because I don't get the subscription. I'm sorry that you couldn't find one today, but I'm hoping that you will have better luck tomorrow. Congratulations on getting published!

Congrats on getting published. Hope you will find the magazine soon. BTW, how much do they pay for publishing a single card?

Congrats on being published! I can't wait till that day comes for me, I would go crazy if they didn't have the mag! I subscribe to Cards online and saw your card, it is super cute!

Hi Winter. I feel your pain. On the issue my card was in the magazine was a WEEK late and then the box with my free issues and "stuff" came 2 months later. Free is free though. LOL. COngrats on getting a card published though, it's a great feeling!

Awww deary! I've been there girl. Hobby Lobby. December CARDS. Got there, and the cashier told me she had sold the last copy 10 minutes before I arrived. :( But don't give up! They'll get more in - find a manager and ask when their next truck comes (they know, trust me! lol)

CONGRATS on being pubd!

I hope you find the CARDS magazine!!! I think they are hard to find. I know they had them at Michael's when I looked last spring.

Congratulations on getting published. I hope you find your magazine soon. I feel your pain as I don't have access to magazines here in Croatia. I'm at the mercy of my American blogging friends to tell me where my card is in the magazine.

Amy Heller said...

Oh, you poor thing! I would have done the same thing, too! Hopefully you'll find it today! :) Can't wait to see which card it is!

Lynnette said...

I understand completely, I finally got my copy yesterday (I have a subscription that was a gift!) Do you have a Barns and Noble or Borders nearby? I think you can find them there! I won't tell you where your card is, but it does look fab!

Courtney Baker said...

Oh girl I hate that you didn't find it! That's a complete bummer!

Maureen said...

AGH!! How frustrating...I'm in the book too for the first time, but was lucky to see it online 2 weeks ago...yours looks fabulous!! I have a subscription, but it takes forever to get to Canada...haven't seen it in the local book store either yet...slow!!! Especially when we want it now!!!!!! Congrats on the card drive!!! Maybe save the extra cards for next year!! :)

Congrats on being published. Sorry I missed the card drive. I made a ton of cards for you and cannot believe that they didn't get mailed. I finally got a mailer and then lost your blog. It has been really crazy on this end. Glad your drive was a big success. Think I will just have to quickly send these cards Jen's way. It was a great idea. Thank you for all of your efforts!
