I bet you didn't know that Germany had a whole magazine dedicated to Hello Kitty. (Unless you're from Germany...then you might have known.)
And I bet you also didn't know that I was in it!
They asked me to do a little interview in it a while back, and I just got my copy in the mail. Hot dog!
It's so neat to be in a magazine from another country! I felt kinda special. :o)
Paige however, was not as much impressed with my interview as the free stickers that came with "her magazine".
I'm not sure if etiquette allows for me to share my interview questions, but maybe I'll share them later on down the road after the magazine isn't on newsstands anymore. :O)
So, that's my little news for the day! Pretty cool!
I have a few projects that I've been meaning to share, but to tell you the truth, I've been putting it off because I'm afraid that you guys will think they're stupid. Haha. Do you ever worry about that? I'm sure we all do. Someone once left a comment saying that I shouldn't confess my insecurities in my posts because I don't come off sounding confident. They're probably right; Martha Stewart probably didn't get where she was by feeling insecure. But I don't want that kind of life, I don't like to pretend like that. Anyway, I'm rambling now. Don't worry, I'll get over it and get my ideas posted. Besides, you guys are always so nice about everything, even if you think my ideas are stupid you never say so! That's just another reason why I love you. :O)
Have a fantastic day now, everyone! Auf wiedersehen!
Hello Kitty is awesome! In ANY language! It's even more awesome that you were in a magazine!ReplyDelete
Thats so amazing!! Congrats!ReplyDelete
Another magazine with you in it! That is fantastic news. Your ideas and projects are NEVER stupid always adorable and wonderful and I am always thrilled to see them!ReplyDelete
That is so cool! I had no idea there was a hello kitty magazine. :)ReplyDelete
And yes, working on one of those said posts right now :) I think we all have insecurities, and it's silly to think we couldn't share them. Makes us human. Keep on keepin' on dear :)
Destri is right. Sharing your feelings is being yourself.ReplyDelete
EH!? Did you do a Hello Kitty-related project?ReplyDelete
And yeah, if you're trying to be a business-type person, in which Martha Stewart kinda is, then insecurities aren't good. But I come here because the projects are cute and they come from a real person to real people, so sharing them is perfectly perfect :)
There is an entire Hello Kitty store in the mall near us, my daughter loves it. I love your ideas, I can actually make them. Keep them coming.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's so cool! I was a kid living in Japan when Hello Kitty was first introduced (you can tell how old I am!) and knew my life would never be the same.ReplyDelete
So stinkin' cool about your magazine article!! And your ideas are awesome, but I totally understand that feeling of thinking what you are doing others may find silly....we all feel that at times I am sure!! Insecurities make you real and relate-able!! You go girl!! Keep doing what you are doing, that's why we love you and your blog! :)ReplyDelete
I always love reading your blog because you are so real. Anyone who says that you are showing that your insecure is crazy, because I think it shows that your a real person, and not fake like some other people out in blog land. Anyway, I kind of went off on a tangent there, I just wanted to say that I love your blog and can't wait to see those projects!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! I love your ideas!ReplyDelete
umm pretty sure if your ideas were at all ever "stupid" then you wouldn't be getting asked by foreign magazines to do interviews! ;) Oh and ps I keep reading blogs if the author's seem real, otherwise I feel intimidated and sub par.ReplyDelete
I´m from Germany, but I don´t know this Magazine. But I thik aubout buying it immediately!ReplyDelete
Viele Grüße aus Deutschland!
Congratulations Disney! How cool. I'm a fairly new reader, loving everything you are making. And since I am from Germany ;-), I'll go looking for this magazine later on my shopping tour ;-). Have a fab day - maks :-)ReplyDelete
Well I´m from germany too and to be sure it seems as if we have two Hello Kitty Magazines. Because one I know and this one I haven´t seen before.ReplyDelete
But this is just awesome! :D
I live in Germany and love your blog! I didn't know the magazine "Hello Kitty" but I will have a look for it. My daughter is a little bit too small for reading it :-)ReplyDelete
I'm curious what's coming next!
Greetings from Hamburg, Germany!!! Go on like this!!!
Wow this is so adorable! Cant wait to read the interview! :DReplyDelete
And I love Paige! Shes grown so big now :) (kisses)
Nothing that you post can ever be stupid! (cross my heart)
Can't wait to see whats coming up :D
OMG... I'm getting this issue of the magazine... But I am going to pretend it's for my niece. Even if nobody asks... Haha, no seriously she gets it when I finished your interview.ReplyDelete
I did know there is a Hello Kitty magazine, because friends gave me two issues once for my birthday. I thought that was hilarious...
Don't be insecure, you can't and shouldn't please everyone and not everyone is going to like what you post. But to me you always rock and I'm sure most of your followers think so too, no matter what...
Greetings from Germany
Oh, how can I get that mag. I collect Hello Kitty and had no idea. congrats DisneyReplyDelete
I wanted to have a look at your interview and I found that magazine at Cologne Main Station, but it was wrapped in foil. :(ReplyDelete
This is great news for you! Congratulations. It is the least you deserve for all that you give out! Thanks.ReplyDelete
I like that you talk about your insecurities. It validates my own insecurities about things. So when you have them, I can think, hmmm...she had them and look at the brilliant stuff she made in spite of them. It makes you more relatable that way!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the publication!
Huge congrats on the magazine!! Showing your insecurities makes you transparent and more relatable in my opinion. I'm sure the projects are fabulous. And if not, so what we all have not-so-good projects (I'm sure Martha does too). I'll support ya anyway ^_^ReplyDelete
Hello Disney.Yes I know this Magazin but I thought this Magazin is an Amarican Magazin.Now I see i was wrong.Tomorrow I go with my daughters to the supermarket and then I buy one.I`m curious what you wrote.Here in the City of Hamburg (Germany) is a new Store with this nice(but expensive) little Cat.I wish you a nice weekend♥EVELYN♥ReplyDelete
Isn't that sewing /crafting. Every gift I make takes 2x longer than it should. It takes time to work up the courage to make something instead of buy it, and it takes a lot of courage for me to give it.ReplyDelete
It never seems quite perfect enough.
Keep up the inspiring work. you may not be like Martha- but your daughter won't write a mean tell-all book like her daughter did.

You are featured on another countrys' magazine and still have insecurities???
And i thought i had a long way! :)
Let alone that there are no stupid ideas, only snobish people...
...whom you don't want reading your blog anyway!
Can't wait to read more on those ideas.
I must also confess to be sharing some of your great projects with my children in sunday school,
and i thank you dearly.
All the best!
Awesome!! I knew there is such a magazine because my daughters regularly browse throught all the children's magazines at the store. :) Thanks for sharing, I'll see if I find this issue.ReplyDelete
Greetings from Hanover, Germany, Katja
Well isn't that neat?! I love that you're in magazines!! And I love that picture of Paige with her totally impressed face...priceless:) I'm very excited to see your new ideas!!!ReplyDelete
You have one of the most creative blogs i have ever come across on the internet. I always get excited when i see you have a new craft post. :)ReplyDelete

Absolutely love your blog! I just discovered it yesterday and I've already tried out three of your crafts! Love, love, love it!ReplyDelete
You're in a magazine? Wow, nice. You are so beautiful you should be on a Christmas Card ;o)ReplyDelete
Hi Disney! I LOVE your blog!! You inspire me, because I have so many ideas that I put off from posting because I am afraid they are dumb. Its encouraging to know that such an awesome artist is not always confident :)ReplyDelete
Congratulations! You and your ideas are best! IvankaReplyDelete
Congats on the magazine!ReplyDelete
Also it is YOUR blog so you should put feel free to type how ever you feel.
wow -- I'm surprised how many other posts are from Germany!! I live in Germany too, and I just found your blog today. How exciting. I also did not know that there was a hello kitty magazine, but my two sisters love Hello Kitty, so it might be interesting to check it out sometime. I'm American, but I am already living here since 2008... How'd they approach you? So neat!
Hope you have a great week.

hi disney! i love your blog. i chanced upon it last night while trying to figure out how to start sewing. after successfully altering two dresses today, i found this post. and guess what, i'm from germany! i haven't seen this magazine. i hope i'll still find this issue so i could read ur article!ReplyDelete
es bueno que expreses las inseguridades ante tu publico, pues asi los que admiran tus trabajos y se sienten de esa manera sabran que pueden hacer cosas tan bellas y fantasticas como las tuyasReplyDelete
