Cloud Nine

January 2014 Cover of Art Forum Magazine

Last month, Art Forum Magazine contacted me to request permission to republish a couple of my photos. Snowflake photos. Crocheted snowflake photos. In the biggest art magazine on the planet.

I was thunderstruck yet ecstatic. I had no clue what they were planning, but my feet didn't touch the ground for days. I couldn't believe it!

They said they would send me a copy of the magazine once published. It came in the mail this week.

Hot off the press, the magazine arrived this week. And once again, I'm dancing on air!

And it's online too!!!!!!!!!! (Thanks, Lolamom2!)

  4. Congratulations!

    I made my first foray into thread crochet last fall. Your wonderful patterns helped me learn new techniques, and my friends and family LOVED the snowflakes (many of which came from here) that I made as Christmas gifts. Your inventiveness and eye for beauty and symmetry continue to amaze me. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us, and I'm thrilled for you that your patterns got published

    P.S. Probably the best reaction came from the basketball player who got the Mount Wilson snowflake :-) There's not too many sports-themed snowflakes out there!

    1. Thank you, rehberre, and thank you for telling me about your snowflakes! I think your Mount Wilson Snowflake recipient and mine (my dad) are probably the only ones who appreciate that flake! It isn't a very popular pattern, but I think it's so giggle-worthy! Oh, and another sports-themed snowflake coming on the 27th... (do I make you curious?!?) :)

  5. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my GOSH!!!!! This is wonderful! I am doing a happy dance in my chair right now.

    Congratulations, dear buddy. This is no more than you deserve. And they picked a couple of great snowflakes too.

    P.S. I see you're Number 1 on the list. No surprise there. :D

    1. Wow, Sue! You made me happy dance all over again! I would have picked different snowflakes, but it's pretty cool that Lisa's snowflake was mentioned, since we're still sort of reeling from losing her so young.

  6. Dear Deborah,
    Thank you so much for allowing me to write about your impeccably executed artworks for this month's issue of Art Forum. It is artists like you that motivate me daily to continue to try to make art that is personally meaningful and special in some way. I look so forward to your new creations as your imagination for innovative and clever designs for beautiful crocheted snowflakes feels limitless. I hope in the future your designs are exhibited and shared worldwide, as they should,
    as I believe your collection of snowflakes is an example of some of the most important contemporary artworks in existence today, and should be recognized as such.
    Love always and with sincere undying support,
    Bunny Rogers
