Hi Everyone!
This morning I visited my dear friend Marie Segal from Art From My Heart. Marie is an amazing artist and just a very nice lady. Please go over to say hello to her.
Ok sooo Marie blogged today with on old post of hers. I thought what a great idea. I have new followers that may not have gone back to those older readings of mine. So this week I will be blogging some of my older posts. I will just choose one from each each year I have been blogging and add any new information.
If you think this is a good idea and are going to blog some old posts let me know so I can link up with you.

On 10/16/08 I published this post
Update, I have now been published in 10 different magazines.

The first time any of my designs were published was in 1990. An exhilarating thrill of excitement ran through my entire body. To see the words, "By Nicole Campanella" in print was pretty sweet. Over the years I have been very fortunate, along with some hard work, to have my designs published in six different magazines, several gallery books, online zines, and four of my own books. Now I mention this to say that the excitement of being published has never left me. I still get happy chills that run down my spine. It is so with this excellent publication from the American Gourd Society. I am so impressed with the quality of this magazine and honored that the editors have chosen to use two of my beaded gourd instructions. Each person that I have been in contact with through the American Gourd Society, have gone above and beyond to accommodate me. I thank them for that and for the continuing effort for their organization and magazine. So now take some time to visit The American Gourd Society

I still design beaded gourds
Honor and Integrity in Life in Art


  1. It's fun to see some of your older posts! As an owner, I can attest that your "Gourdgeous Gourds" book is fantastic!!

  2. Thanks Debbie. As an owner of one of your beaded gourds I can say your are is wonderful.

  3. Yes, being published still makes me shiver, too. BTW, can you check the link of the Gourd Society? It seems that it doesn't work.

  4. Your beaded gourds are beautiful!


I am sorry I had to put a word verification for my comments due to the unsightly spam comments against women. Please take the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you.
