I Made A Date!!!

Actually, I captured an entire month (or rather, my photo of my Petal Pushers florist’s shop did! The month of April, 2006, to be exact, in a calendar produced by the moderator of TheCamp@yahoo.com!!

When the call went out for photos of member’s projects several weeks ago, I did not jump to post any. Many of the members of The Camp are featured writers and guest artisans of the finest miniature magazines in the US, Canada and Europe. Many of them also do their own photography to illustrate their articles, web sites and catalogues. Granted, the original plan called for 4 photos (of dollhouses, vignettes, scenes or special pieces) per month. Even with 48 photos to be chosen, I wasn’t eager to compete on this level;-)

Therefore,I have absolutely no explanation for the flight of fancy which caused me to submit three photos after the deadline was extended! I knew, by then, that layout limitations and time constraints would limit this first year’s calendar to 12 of the best; certainly a better reason than most to expect nothing to come of my sudden leap away from good sense.

While catching up on e-mail, I noticed that a new edition of The Camp Digest (#1501, 12/17/2005) had arrived. Well down the page (on message #13), I found an early Christmas present:
