Patience is a Virtue...

...and it's one I don't usually have. 
Sometimes, however, it can pay off.
 
I just got the mail & in it was a copy of the Apr/May/June 2013 issue of The Stampers' Sampler.  The mailing label said "Congratulations!  You've been published in...The Stampers' Sampler."
 
Now...it's been ages since I've submitted anything to the magazines, although I used to do so quite often.  Having worked for Stampington & Company years ago, I know they may hold on to submissions for a long time, waiting for the right time to use them.  When I saw this card published, I vaguely remembered creating it...but I looked back in my computer archives & sure enough...I made this card back in October 2008! 
 
So...those of you who have submitted artwork to a publication...be patient.  You just may be published...eventually.  And continue to submit artwork if you want to be published...you can't be published if you don't send stuff in.
