Mingle Magazine and Goodbye Blogger!

Have you heard of Mingle Magazine? It is simply beautiful!
So gorgeous and inspiring with so many different types of parties and events! I have been a lover of Stampington & Company magazines for years! I'm a true crafter at heart and Stampington & Company publishes the best arts and crafts publications from paper-crafting, mixed-media art to home decorating. While in Barnes & Nobles one day I saw that they had launched a publication for creative ideas for unique gatherings called Mingle...I screamed....literally! I immediately grabbed it! I read it while I was at the SNAP conference in Utah! How perfect was that reading this awesome crafty, handmade, and unique party magazine while I'm a speaker at an awesome DIY and craft blogging conference! I was so inspired!
Then I saw this cool Halloween party! I always decorate for Halloween in traditional orange, black and white. I will not change my colors because I have years of buying these colors (during after Halloween clearance of course) and because I love the classic colors of Halloween! I thought maybe I should submit a party?
I'm not one to submit my parties to other blogs. I figure that is why I have a blog so I can show my parties and work. However, this year I decided to submit my Princess and the Pea party (Madison's Easter party) to Hostess with the Mostess. If you missed my Princess and the Pea party look HERE! So I thought why not.....I would try to submit another party.... this time to be published in a National paper magazine! I dream big don't I??? I decided to submit Madison's Owl-O-Ween party. Well guess what???
You guess it.....I got an email during my week at the beach with Maddy that my party will be featured in the upcoming Autumn publication coming out in stores near you October 1st! I could not be more ecstatic! The most amazing part is that I was able to keep this a secret for so long! LOL

 I love fact I'm already decorating for it...crazy I know. I love summer but around this time of year I get so excited that we get to have autumn again! I need to get started on my holiday crafting, because in a flash, the holidays hit and I never feel quite prepared. 
Don't forget to pick up your copy of Mingle October 1st in all major book stores and craft stores. 
Also the all new Maddycakes Muse will be launching on Monday with my new website Goodbye Blogger. This will be my last post using you. 


  1. Congratulations!!!! Your work is lovely!

  2. Congratulations again! It is well deserved!!
