Remember the red dresses the two girls wear at the end? That is what this red paper reminded me of.
I was pretty proud of my little collection (banner, crown, tussie mussie,) I must say.
One of the other things the show asked for was a list of all the tools I used and to write instructions for each of my items.
To help do this I took pictures of all the various supplies & tools that I had used.
I divided my items up into groups - Embellishments, Glues and Cutting, took the pictures and and printed them out on cardstock with a typed detailed list of what I had used.
When I was all done I packed everything up carefully - wrapped each item in brown tissue paper and nestled it all down in brown shredded paper and sent it on it's way to NYC.
Fingers and toes crossed.
Well, I am sure you can guess what happened, because you are only now hearing about all this.
Yes, I was rejected by Martha. Or her staff. I guess I will never know how far my little goodies made it up the production chain. But I would like to sort of think that is was Martha herself.
What I do know is about 2 weeks later I got a very nice email that basically said "Thanks, your items are cute and if we ever need you we will call. We have your info on file." And then my little package came back.
I guess as far as rejections go this was a nice one.
And after all how many people can say they were rejected by THE Martha?
Whenever times get hard around here, or I am having a bad day, I have to admit that it has become a sweet little comfort that my family gives me, when they say "yes dear, but you are on file with Martha."
