You guys.... I am published in a magazine!!!!! Okay, not me but my words and a couple pictures of me. It's such a humbling experience to be a part of Latter-Day Woman Magazine. I love what they're doing. They reach out to women who are tired of values being thrown by the wayside, who want to receive encouragement and strength, who want a place where lives and spirits can be touched daily, who are tired of living by the world's standards. It is for LDS women to come together and share a common bond, a sisterhood really. {source}

I wrote an article about 10 inexpensive ways to freshen up your wardrobe. I've mentioned a lot of the rules on my blog sporadically but for your convenience it is all on one page. If you want to see what I had to say, go here - it's on pages 25-26. There's also a great recipe for creamy tomato and artichoke soup that sounds pretty easy on page 9.

  46. Really well done Elaine. No one better to write a series of such tips... you always look fantastic on a budget I can hardly believe! Oh, and reading your post from the other day I just wanted to say, I love your sarcasm (I would just call it a sense of humour)! Your posts frequently make me snort over my morning coffee, which doesn't sound very attractive, but is one of my ways of enjoying myself! ; D
