My Marie Antoinette Project

Sometime last year, ( I think) I started this project with Catherine Moore. Theater des Modes. A collaboration of many talented artists. Have you seen it? No? Well then, you must scroll down to the very bottom of my blog, and be sure to turn on your sound speakers!

In the meantime...I recently re-vamped and added to my theater then submitted it to a popular magazine. I was so sure it would be accepted. But I was not .
As sore as I sound, I still bought the magazine and love all the art and artists, but wish future publications would include a comment card with rejected submissions as to why not. I've submitted so many things with out a clue as to why my stuff was not good enough. And I know I have talent.

Sorry for the steam...the real reason for this post is to get idea's onto what I can do with this cage for Halloween coming up...I was kinda thinking of leaving the front as it is...then having a be-headed Marie all dark and gloomy in the back.

Or no Marie at all and something totally different. I'm open for suggestions!

Hi ladybug!!
How about leave it~ as is and try it on etsy or maybe a local shop... though I can see a spooky be-headed Marie...for Halloween.. :0 ...that was a great idea, too! I would even be tempted to keep something that beautiful all to myself! How cool would that look in your own home?! I don't want you to feel like you're "stuck" with this beauty! It will definitely go to a good home because it's just so wonderful!!!
I can surely understand your frustration. I have never tried to submit any of my work... but, I'm pretty sure that I would just be broken-hearted if I got no acknowledgment or reply whatsoever. I am happy that you were able to vent... we can all relate to the disappointment! Don't give up~~~ press on, Michelle!! You are so very talented!!

PS- ... haven't really solved the dilemma, these are just a few suggestions...

I love the beheaded theme personally and I don't think the people at that magazine know much about creativity to be honest.
