Exciting and disappointing

Exciting being included in a book, disappointing that the credit lines aren't accurate. pg. 57 "work on opposite page by Gail Pierce and Val Foster." This implies that my journal pages are the top ones; not! Mine are on the bottom of this beautifully printed book, "Collaborative Art Journals" by L.K. Ludwig. I wonder if there are other mistakes? The book is great eye candy, but I doubt it will be off of my bookshelf very often.

Seven new photos on It's time to stop production in the wet studio; the intense heat has struck! Hard for me to believe that so many in the country live in areas where the temps are so low that heaters are required. The AC has been on for months and the temps in the garage even with a portable AC aimed at me are unbearable. I do have a nice small stash of dyed and screen printed fabric to experiment with over the summer and into the fall. The plan is to concentrate on FME and create hand-made stamps and other tools to use on fabric.

Quote about travel: The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. St. Augustine. (I'm off to Italy in less than a week!)

Hey, I hear ya gf on the mistake they made on crediting the art to the correct artist. I didn't see any other mistakes on that, although I might've missed them if they were there. What a bummer that they did that on our spread. Although I love the spread you did, so if people think it's my art, I guess that's okay. But it would be so much better if they had done it correctly, and not screwed up, and readers could know who did what art.

On the other hand, it's great to be in the book at all, so I'm taking the disappointment with a grain of salt. Although too much salt raises my blood pressure, LOL!

I got my book from Amazon cheeper than the discount they were giving us from thwem. The book is really nice, it's too bad they got that wrong Gail. Are you going to email them? Maybe they will give you a free book.
