Grinning like a fool


Seth just texted me.

“Annie!  Did you already know about the Disc Makers catalog and were just waiting to surprise me?”

I stared at the phone.  What catalog?  Disc Makers?  Wait – am I in Disc Makers?  AM I IN DISC MAKERS???!?

“On the COVER.”


I am on the cover of… well, not quite a magazine, but IT MIGHT AS WELL BE A MAGAZINE.  I am arriving in thousands of mailboxes, worldwide, as I type.

Thank you, Seth Kiehl, for creating such a gorgeous design… one that Disc Makers rightfully found worthy of their catalog.

Oh, and the front page of their website, too.


Pretty much the happiest thing that could happen to me on a Monday.  I seriously can’t stop smiling.  Thanks, Disc Makers.

    Hey Annie, this is great! Congrats on your new celebriteé (sp?).

    Did you shop around for cd pressing places when you were finishing up your EP? My husband is at the place now where he’ll be getting his EP pressed soon, but I was curious about the reasons you chose Disc Makers over some of the others (like Oasis, etc.). Any good words of advice for a singer/songwriter’s wife?

    I was TOTALLY on Disc Makers website today because I was looking for a new dvd burner for camp … what a weird coincidence! Sadly I didn’t make it to the homepage and so I missed out. But congrats!!!!!

  23. […] to you seeing as how you’ve never even heard of me – that is, unless you saw me on the cover of Disc Makers.  That’s right, Kim: I, like you, am a bona fide cover girl.  We are on the same level.  […]
