| This is the first issue since Nora left that there has been an editor
and an assistant editor. I know it seems like a small thing, but it is
has been hard to find someone willing to commit that kind of time and effort
to a volunteer project. I want to give Allison Aller a warm welcome
and my sincere thanks for volunteering for the position. I also want
to give thanks to my loyal, albeit silent, proofreader. Since this
issue spans the Thanksgiving season in the United States, I think it only
fitting that I continue to give thanks to the staff and contributing
authors. CQMagOnline would not exist, if it were not for you!
will be some changes in the coming year. Soon, some staff members will
become contributing authors and some contributing authors will become staff
members. Barbara Blankenship is working out the details of a contest
sponsored by Kreinik, so stay tuned for the details. We are always
looking for CQ related articles and detailed projects. Remember that
the copyright stays with the author, CQMagOnline only reserves the right to
edit your work and publish it on our site. That means that placing an
article here does not prevent you from putting it on your website, blog or
in another publication. If you would like to contribute something, please
contact Allie or me for further details.
This issue offers a wide range of ideas and projects for you, the reader.
Barbara Blankenship concludes the Ideas and Inspirations Challenge, Pat
Winter offers a variety of designs for small gifts, Allison Aller creates CQ
Scrapbook Cards, and Lynn Schoeffler frames a special block in an
unusual way. We also have some great articles from contributing
authors like Cindy Thury Smith, Marie Alton, Carolyn Phillips, Jo Newsham,
Gail Odegaard, and Leslie Ehrlich. We all hope you enjoy this issue and
thank you for your readership.
