Well, I've finished the frames for the Somerset article. I made more than I needed, so that I'd have a choice, and what the heck- as long as I was making them, I might as well make a bunch! Next step is to choose which ones to actually send. They asked for 3-5 frames. Hmmm, do you think I'd be way to presumptuous to send them all??? It's just so hard to decide! They're all my little babies! Well, realistically, I won't overwhelm them and send all of them, but I do think I'll probably bump the number up to 5-7! Anyway, that way they can decide which ones are best, and maybe if I'm lucky, they'll all make it in!
I also need to decide what to put in each frame. I'm actually not sure whether they'll put something else in the frames, but why not include some of my own things? You can be guaranteed that I'll try to sneak a few photos of Riley in there!
And speaking of each of these frames being my little babies, is it terribly wrong to be so enamored of one's own creation? I just cannot get over how much I love this one frame I made! There's just something about the combination of colors and patterns that I simply adore. I think this one's going to have to stay with me after it makes it back from the magazine. In fact, there are a few in this lot that are going to be difficult to give up! Which is bad, because the one good thing about these frames is that they aren't as personal as my other art, so they're easier for me to sell! I can't start becoming attached to them!
So as the title states, this was step one. Next big step is the article, which I haven't even begun! But it should go quickly, since it's really only a step-by-step article.
However, before any of that gets done, I've got to get moving-we've got a garage sale tomorrow, and I've got a ton to do to prepare for that!! Ah, life! Never enough time!
