on being famous

It's a rough life, being famous and married to someone who is, too. It's just work, work, work, all of the time. I'm totally kidding, of course, but we are feeling a wee bit, well, 'published' around here lately. One of Adam's pictures was selected for Photolife magazine's emerging photographer issue, which is currently on newsstands! This is a big deal. See the description on the cover? 'Best new talent' - that's Adam! I'm a teeny bit proud of him. His photo is in the middle row on the far right. Page 29, should you happen to pick up a copy. Which I highly recommend doing, by the way.
And you can also see it in the background of the picture below, where he was featured in The Vanguard, our local newspaper. For the month of August, he has a show in the lobby at Th'Yarc of some of his images. It looks fantastic. (Pssst... they're for sale, too! Snatch one up before he's really famous and snooty and they cost a fortune. Har har. He'll never be snooty.)As for me - not nearly as exciting but still very cool - one of my images is in the current issue of Enroute magazine, Air Canada's in-flight publication.It's a photo I took of some Olivier soaps I bought while in Saint John in March. It's the one I was paid for. Nifty!
And these don't really have anything to do with my newfound fame, but I did win The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen (below, right) from Make & Do, Austen's blog. Yipeee! It was my bedtime reading last night, and I'm looking forward to the rest tonight, and to making some of the recipes in it. Thanks, Austen!

Also pictured below is Handmade Home, which I am loving, despite feeling entirely uninterested in sewing, as of late. Even after scoring that great sewing machine! Too much summer fun to be had, I guess.
Happy Wednesday!

    WOW!!! Congratulations all around! I was right in my FB comment: you are a very talented couple indeed.

    Is PhotoLife available in U.S. bookstores, I wonder. I'll have to look. My dh enjoys photography (not in the same league as either of you, of course, but he enjoys it), so he might like to look at that.

    And congrats too on your book win!

  2. mmmmmm.... that looks like a dee-lish book :)

  3. Congratulations Sherrie!!!!! All that news is awesome and congrats to your husband as well!!!

  4. Congrats to both of you on your good work.

  5. Big congrats to both of you! What a lovely summer y'all are having.

    And please to tell me how the enRoute thing happened. Did you just up and submit a photo to them out of the blue one day?

  6. Voofa - I didn't submit anything - they found my pic on Flickr and contacted me. Easy peasy, eh? :)
