to the readers of Quick and Crafty magazine.
I had a piece of work published that included the slang for plop/poo/cack/merd (see wording in the layout here) and it was entirely my fault for submitting it without thinking!
Angela Kennedy of Aceville publication rang me before christmas to run a feature on moi. Ooooooooooh, I was so taken aback but went with the flow of them focusing in on the photog and crafting I do. I had to supply a number of bright layouts, some other craft works and photo's plus some text answer to their questions. It was wall fun to do and I do rather like Acevilles monthlies as they such bright and bold mags.
So I open a copy of it today and read the 4 page spread. I do get such a wobbly tummy when I see my stuff in print, worthy of cutting out for scrapping all over again!. BUT!!! As I sat in my fave cafe quaffing decaff this morning I burst out laughing and then a hot flush came over me when I saw that they had printed it. I mean, it is actually one of my fave layouts becuase the patterned paper is actually wallpaper and I love the stitched ribbon effect. And really, Im not ashamed that I expressed myself so honestly.
What I am sorry about is that it is there for all 15,000 plus readers to digest over their cornflakes or afternoon tea. Again, I am so sorry you have to see that I used this word so candidly but on reflection - its a crafters word for "dammit, thats another papercut amongst many".
On a lighter note - well there isnt one. Im just sat here all kind of embarassed. Sorwy xx
