Thanks for all of the updates Brigitte.  I was wonder if you would be sending out rejection/acceptance notifications to those that applied? 

good luck and take care

\uap>Since you guys all like mischief about as much as I do, I thought I'd send you into the weekend with an image of these High Heeled flippers by Dutch Artist Liesbeth Rommers.

\uap>I saw these on fb today and just had to share them with this group. Someone's comment:

\uap>"For the Formal Swimmer, no doubt."



\uap>See funny craft? Feel free to post here. We all can use a good laugh!

Sounds like it's really coming along! Well done!
Comment by Brigitte Martin on July 15, 2011 at 7:08am

Almost....done. Ha! Formatting (check), fact checking (check), copyright researching (check) and all that other fun stuff is done. Now on to the last bit and - because I am such a nerd - one more round of proof reading just-to-be-sure-it-is-all-around-the-way-it-has-to-be. Then book a session with the big gun copy machine at my local mailing store and mail this phonebook of a manuscript off. Tada.

The neat thing is that some artists who missed the boat the first time aorund are already signing up and sending in materials for the next edition. That's great. Looks like this project will be with me for a while :-)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Great to hear Andrew Wagner's on board Humor in Craft. While he was at American Craft Magazine we had an interesting correspondence.  His response was straightforward, well-considered and full of good humor.
