Yes, I'm in here again.I made this affirmation heart so long ago for Ruth. But this photo doesn't actually do it justice. The instructions on the page are great though..... If you pull the ribbons, out comes a large antique key with fabric and fibres wrapped around it. When you unwind the fabric it has a message "to thine own self be true" -- my favourite quotation (Hamlet).
When I saw that the heart didn't match the instructions, I was a bit annoyed and set the magazine aside for a few days. When I picked it up again, I came to this page and said "Hey, that's pretty" (it's the chapter title page). When I got to the article I realized that it was MY article (my own pretty work, LOL). I was so surprised because the article was supposed to be in an upcoming Somerset Home, not this Sew Somerset! Not much editing was done to my writing -- I'm a bit embarrassed over my over-use of exclamation points!!! But I write like I speak, and I'm very excited sometimes.
So, Somerset is forgiven (kind of, maybe) for misinforming the public on the affirmation heart, because they made up for it a few pages later :)
Look for me in upcoming editions of Somerset Studio (Jan/Feb) and the next Artful Blogging.
Don't worry, I'll still remember you all when I'm famous....... I had my palm read last week at a holiday party and the reader told me that many people adore me. I smiled, thinking of my many kindergarten students. Apparently I'm going to live forever too -- because my long life line runs into a scar that I have running up my arm. hmmmm..... maybe Edward is going to come and turn me into a vampire.... sorry, I've just finished book 2 of the Twilight books.......
