The submission that wasn't

Where have I been for the last few days??? Working on the house and on a piece for Belle Armoire Jewelry. I got an email saying that they had extended the deadline to May 1st, so I was very happy about that as I hadn't had time since I was in the middle of a move and unpacking etc. But...I hate that word but, cause you always know that something bad happens after it. But...I worked my little heart out on it...and I am not happy with it. Well, let me rephrase that. I am unhappy with the leaf part. I made a number of mistakes on it and it is just not the quality that I would like to represent me. So, needless to say...it is not being sent. Here it is for your viewing:I am OK with not sending it. I believe in fate so it wasn't meant to be. Maybe I am destined to be in some other issue or something. Who knows, but I will be redoing the leaf because I really like the rest of it. It will look cute when I finish it correctly. I did learn a few things from making it so that is always a good thing.

Looks good to me - maybe you are too much of a perfectionist.
Thanks for your comment on my blog too.

It looks beautiful. I love the vintage look to it. But..I know I said it...you are your own worst critic....

I think it's really pretty but you definitely have to be happy with it and love it.

It looks lovely, but you have to be happy with it as our art is an extension of ourselves. I am sure you will perfect it!!
