Default Bad news ... good news ...

A box arrived today from a magazine I had submitted and had some projects accepted; I promptly mailed the projects as directed. They have changed their minds and now rejected and returned them.

Another box arrived with it. From Lana.

Oh MY WORD!!!!!!!!

I took a photo of the box contents, after I lovingly explored each item! So many fun trinkets AND CHOCOLATE!!!!!, and a beautiful card, and most darling of all:

A CROWN AND SCEPTAR!!!!! (sp???)

I will post, after someone gets home to take a photo of me WEARING my new crown!

Oh, I DO feel royal, I DO, I DO, I DO!!!!!!!!!

Too much, Lana, too too much!!!! But, I do love it all and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{Lana}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Julie - a queen MUST have a crown. It's just that simple.
Now, if you're like Lana....and don't want to part with it, you'd best find a new one to send to the NEXT lucky Queen for a Week!

Julie - you deserve it! You are an inspiration!!

Nothin' like a crown/tiara to give you a lift! When I was hanging out on the Sweet Potato Queens Message Board, I started a program called T.I.T.S. -- Tiaras In Transit Society! lol I would sent a tiara to anyone who didn't already have one. I bought them from eBay (although a few were donated by other Queens) and sent them out for free. I can't tell you how happy it made them and ME! Enjoy your crown... just try to wear it a lot... doing chores, stamping, out to dinner, whatever! It's sorta like a RAK... it will make people smile and giggle... always a good thing! We share tiaras with waitstaff or whoever wants to try them on. It's great!

First, YAY Lana, you always know just the right thing to do, say, or send. And you have awsome timing.

Now, Julie, all right - what was the mag editor thinking? I want names - I have plenty of TP, and I'm not afraid to use it! (Ok, it's not exactly mine, my mom stocked up for y2k, I bet everybody on here could still have some!) I'm from Jersey, not for nuthin, we know connections, ya knows 'ut I mean? (Use your best Sopranos character there)

The rejection didn't bug me so much as holding onto my project/article for soooooo long after accepting it. Here I took the time to package them carefully, write up step-by-step instructions, etc. and paid to ship them priority.

On a good note, the write-ups are already completed and as I now have the prototypes back, I guess I can just submit to another mag and see if THEY want 'em!

On further good note, I finished all my tasks in the castle . . . tomorrow I get to spend the day in the Royal Rubber VAULT!!!!!! Heh, heh, heh!

With my crown ... undisturbed for at least 6 hours ...

Oh, Julie, I can't wait to see the pic. And I love your way of thinking -- "tasks at the castle". I'm going to CASE that saying. LOL

I need somebody to come home to take my photo, but at the same time, the castle floor is sooooooo CLEAN right now! This is a historic moment!!!!! I must annotate it in the royal archives!!!!!

If any of the royal subjects return, all could be for naught!!!!!!!!

Of course, the VAULT is a whole different story; ack! But, there's enough room on the counter to stamp, so I'm stamping first, cleaning later---waaaaay later! LOL!

The Queen's gotta have a reprieve from duty to engage in some frivolity, eh?

I'm getting dizzy with anticipation ...
