Mom and I thought we would try submitting two of our necklaces to Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine at the beginning of the year. Well, we got a package today and it was our two necklaces back with a nice letter saying, "We appreciate your creative efforts, but we are unable to fit this particular piece into our editorial schedule". It was a nice letter and it will be added to our pile of rejections :) Though it is nice we received these back before our next show at the end of July - more inventory is always good!!!!
Here are the two pieces we submitted:

|November 2011 ABS Challenge|
Oh, about our show season.
Mom and I had one of our pieces on display at Ivy Tech Hall to promote one of our upcoming shows "Art on the Wabash". The sponsors like to display art by the artists to give the community a taste of what will be at the art show.
Each year mom and I try to submit something different for the display case. This year we are showcasing the African Mask. I think this might be another piece that mom may steal one day.
This evening I worked on listing three pendants on Etsy.
This is an extra blue heron mom and I made for Erin for her Verse and Vision II piece.

It was well worth it though. Here is a sneak peek of some of the pictures I took.
I love the photos of these Cone flowers. Just a few weeks ago they were perfect. I don't know if it is the heat or they just don't last that long but this is what was left.
This is a Common Zinnea. I just love those yellows and the peek-a-boo of the green leaf coming up through the petals. Mom thinks the middle of the flower looks kind of like a pineapple.
So, that is a sneak peek of the flowers.
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday. It sucks going back to work after being off of work for almost two weeks. Also, on Saturday mom and I are going to a bead show in Indianapolis. I am really looking forward to that because we are looking for some specific things for our Bead Soup pieces. Cross your fingers and our fingers that they have what we want.
