I is for... The Invitation

 


I had decided when picking the letter I is for... in the alphapbet, I wanted my ABC Wednesday posts to be more of a personal nature so this week I went with The Invitation to the art show I would be participating in tomorrow. The Artist Guild only sent me one invitation in the mail. So I got my creative juices to flowing. I found a similar font to add a touch of my own at the bottom and copied it all on pink paper of course. It looks sort of mauve here which is just fine with me. I was rather proud of myself and the fact that I went the extra miles to inter-office them to fellow friends and co-workers in other departments. Then I took a photo of the invitation so I could email it to all my friends, family, past JCPenney co-workers and email buddies, thus saving me the cost of stamps and gas. I snail-mailed to those I did not have email access. I even went above and beyond by mailing or dropping off one to my doctors. Even my old retired pediatrician so he could see what I was up to these days and perhaps be proud of me. I plan to take a piece of my artwork with me when I visit my doctors now. Doctors always have art and pictures hanging in their offices. I thought what better way to do this than when I put my foot inside their door? I can just see my "Blessings Lamb" in my obgyn's office when I go for my annual next month....

Speaking of doctors... I had to call Don's yesterday. It seems he doesn't have a gall stone, but they think his gall bladder may not be functioning properly so they want to do anther test with a big hairy name I can't recall. Don didn't care what it was called. So we wait for another appointment...

I stopped by the library because I figured they would have all the work hung by then and they did. Mine hangs near the bottom which I didn't particularly care for, but what could I do about it?. I just thought with the eye in mine and being smaller in size, it should be up at the top. Maybe they hang large to small going downward. I felt people would be drawn to the eye if it were higher. Oh, well.... I took two pictures of the row it was hanging. One without flash. The other with flash. I found one paper collaged piece that reminded me of what I normally do. I asked if this was legal using papers that had been cut out of magazines and such. Yet I noticed it did not fit properly in it's frame. When I inspected it up close and personal, I could see light coming through the top of it and it had not glass over the piece. A few more pieces had been added as well.

Tomorrow is The BIG day. Wish me luck.

I fell asleep on the couch while watching an old Jedi movie which is a bit serendipitious since I quoted Yoda in my last post. Then I couldn't go back to sleep knowing I needed my beauty rest for tomorrow's big day. I know this is normal. Butterflies and nerves.

So exciting for you, and truly personal as well. An obvious and perfect choice for "I".

Sorry I'm running so late!
