So you guys really don't climb trees to take photos? I suppose next you will tell me you don't put simply limeade in your coke cola either? (Just let me think you do.) :) I call that concoction "Mommy's timeout." :)
I completed 14 hours of continuing medical education this weekend (woohoo!), but I suspect you didn't stop by for that either.
What can I say? I'm stunned. That really describes my reaction. I just can't believe it, really. I'm so humbled and honored to be a part of a design team that has such an amazing legacy for having the biggest talent in the industry, past and present. I was shocked to get invited to join American Crafts (ACCDT). Shocked out of being able to form coherent sentences, which is pretty shocked for me.
Since I still am having word finding difficulty (I hear shock does this to you), I figured I'd let you see my submission:

Altered project: ABC Frame
My favorite is the altered project. J and I use this all the time and the glass has sticky fingerprints on it. When I first had the idea I said (to myself), "No way I'm gonna do that! I'll never be able to think of something for every letter." Which means heck yeah I'm gonna try it. :) The scale had to be exact, so I couldn't put in big words, or images. It didn't take very long at all, I'd say 30 mins once I decided on my letter image (that was the hard part).
Thank you to my friends who pushed me to apply. Thank you to my friends who supported me through the process; you love me neurosis and all and to me that's priceless. And I'm pretty sure I lost a bet to my friend Cindy. If I remember correctly (and if she holds me to it), I'm going to have to wear every piece of flare that AC gives me to TGI Fridays. Even in the urban jungle this could raise some eyebrows. Until tomorrow. Happy day!
