Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Famous? Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The other day, inspired by one of the comments left about my Alice project I decided to email the designer Lynne Nicoletti. I sent her a short note telling her about how much I enjoyed the project, how the frame came about and included pictures. I thought "Right I did it and I'll never hear from her." But, much to my shock and awe, she wrote me back straight away the next day.

She told me how much she liked the frame and how much she enjoys getting comments from stitchers and lots of other nice compliments that left me feeling pretty good. :D But then towards the end of the email she said that she is currently working on a new newsletter and would I mind if she used my pictures in it. MIND...MIND? I nearly fell out of my chair in shock! Of course I told her I would love it! So now I am "almost famous". LOL, LOL

Hey, everybody deserves their 15 minutes. (bahh ha ha)

Have a great weekend!

That's great, Kim! I'm glad that you decided to write to her and somehow it doesn't surprise me that she wrote back and wants to use the photos of your lovely project finish. What an honor! :)

Hi Kim! Congrats on your 15 minutes of fame! But you certainly deserve them for your creativity behind the Alice Frame..LOLOL Never know, you might be asked to mass produce that frame as I'm sure a lot of people would like to frame their piece that way. ;) Anyhoo, congrats!!

Have a great day!

I'm so happy for you Kim. It must be really exciting.
I missed your post on how you finish your Alice piece, but I think it's not to late to tell you what a great job you did.
