Lesson for Today... PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO ALL SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND ADDRESSES.
Cloth Paper Scizzors not only puts out a quality magazine - it has a quality website and associated blogs.
They put a notice in their magazine for their 2012 Artisan Search. Dang if I didn't vasilate between applying and not applying, applying, not applying. They require three submissions for any one category you want to be considered for; Mixed-media Stitch, Art Journaling and Bookmaking, Printmaking and Surface Design, Mixed-media Jewelry, and Collage and Assemblage. If selected your pieces need to be sent to them to be held for one year.
Yikes - one year. I give most of the things I make away. Then, you SHOULD SEE the submissions - a little intimadating http://www.clothpaperscissors.com/media/20/default.aspx
At any rate I haven't been feeling well this past week and didn't get my submission together until this morning and beat feet to get the pictures printed and on to Fed Ex to meet their Monday deadline. The address did not register with me. It was a PO Box and Fed Ex doesn't deliver to PO Boxes. We scrambled to the Post Office but I'm not sure if we made it on time. Lesson learned.
If you're curious, I uploaded my submissions to the Mixed-media Jewelry, Collage and Assemblage and the Journaling and Bookmaking categories under smARTaleck Studios.
