A magazine feature..

Posted by Jenni Szafranski on

With nearly 10 years in business, I've had my share of (spam) emails wanting to promote my products or feature me. There is usually a catch and it usually involves $$$. I've become accustomed to hitting that delete button without giving it a thought..

Until, the Editor of Flea Market Home & Living emailed me. I saw it come across my phone and (thank God) I didn't hit 'delete'!! That night I read through the email; First there was shock, then obviously excitement finally the "holy crap" nerves began..

The Editor was so incredibly kind and made me feel completely at ease. I completed the interview questions, sent off my photos, said a prayer that I didn't write anything stupid and waited. Near the end of September a large envelope arrived and I could hardly breathe! In all my career, a career I love passionately, this was the biggest and most exciting things to ever happen. It was quite a surreal moment.

I also talk about some incredible things I've experienced leading up to this moment; Everything from selling one of my first upholstered sofas to MTV for their offices, to creating barn wood signs for Bath & Body Works stores, to being featured on Miss Mustard Seed's blog - A true honor as Marian is someone I have looked up to and admired from the beginning!

Truly though, every time I see the cover of the magazine (because you know I had to frame it :) ) I feel like someone should pinch me. And as exciting as this has been, I just know God has so much more in store for my future and really; I'm just getting started.. ;)  Jenni
