March Issue of Stanton Sunshine now out!

Top of the midday to you all!  I am glad to finally announce that the new issue for my magazine, http://stantonsunshine.net, has been published.

This month I am introducing a new category, Humor.  Let me know if you like it, and perhaps maybe you could consider contributing your own humor piece to the cause?  🙂  I also put a new spin on the picture gallery in the bottom right corner of every page except the home page:  I am asking for comments on which pics really tickle your fancy.

You will have to excuse both the tardiness and the possible inefficacies of the latest issue.  Things were slow moving around my home office, kind of like how the frigid weather around here is taking its good old sweet time in leaving Minnesota.  As far as mistakes, that is something I will blame on the gremlins in my computer, who are in cahoots with the leprechauns on my desk (they are nice leprechauns, but apparently they still need to have their fun!).  🙂

The good news is, for those of you who read a recent post http://thesunshinefactor.net/Try-try-again, I am still on my new challenge, that of doing my tasks and chores before work, when I am the freshest.  In that is a time for writing, and I am enjoying the freedom of getting my writing needs met everyday!  🙂

As always, I will try to write more on this blog during the month, and I also look forward to you sending me your latest artwork or writings – I will consider them for future issues of the magazine.  Just write me at stantonsunshine@gmail.com or read the Submission Guidelines over at Stanton Sunshine.

Happy March!

Friday Night and This Weekend

Hi folks!

As the February issue of http://stantonsunshine.net goes to press this weekend, it may be unavailable to you for a short time.  I hope this time of updating will be short-lived.  I appreciate your patience and look forward to hearing from you, whether it’s here on the blog or later in the magazine.   🙂

Thank you,

Debb

Ha ha — I am not referring to the Peeps marshmallow candies, although I am in the “love them” camp.  Rather, I am talking about having people in your life that have your back.

The magazine I have created takes a lot of work, but I am not complaining…it’s time dedicated to something I love very much — writing!  I have an editor for this project, and she is the best!  She gently reigns me in when I forget to expound on something, so that the reader can fully understand me.  She tactfully urges me to refrain from taking on too much, which is very easy for me to do.   In fact, dear editor, please raise your Starbucks and take a bow.  Love you lots!  🙂

In every life there is a person or people giving support, understanding, and love.  (If you think you don’t have someone like that, then know that I am on your side!)  Without them we would be scared to chase our dreams or try something new.  Without them we wouldn’t realize that we have value.  I could go on and on….and on and on….you know me — unless I have writer’s block, I tend to be wordy!  🙂

Dear friends:

I have a little assignment for each of you.

1.  Thank your peeps today for being there for you, and let them know of your appreciation.

2.  Report back to this blog — fill us in how your person or people make a difference in your life!

 

Love,

Debb
