It's Only Words and Words Are All I Have To Steal Your Heart Away

 I finished up this piece for the Somerset Studio "The Power of Words" call this week.  I'm not even sure if I'm submitting it in time since they said  September 15 in one issue and October 15 in another issue. 
When I first saw the call I knew which quote I wanted to use but, in my usual MO, I didn't get around to doing anything with it until the last minute.  I may be too late but  I will submit it anyway and just see what happens.  This is my favorite quote because it kind of sums up how I look at things.  It is by Earnest Hemingway.  "Now is no time to think of what you do not have.  Think of what you can do with what there is."  As relevant today as it was when he said it. 
 This is the first time I decorated the package for  a submission and not much decoration, but seemed like enough.  I kept auditioning additional papers but the Scrabble logo seemed to stand alone.
It's only words and words are all I have to steal your heart away.  A little Bee Gees observation!

This is all so cool--love your package--they were saying that they needed more decorated packages--I'll be looking for this one in the letters to the editor section!

That is such a great quote and I love what you did. And it's very clever to use the Scrabble logo on the package! I'll keep my fingers crossed that Stampington will use it!!

I love your submission, and your package! I submitted two aprons to apronology many moons ago, haven't heard anything - good news or bad news???

I don't know how I missed this post of yours -- chiming in late to say how charming I think it is and I hope you submitted it!
