One Creative Argument!

Well, I am finalizing my coloring book and have been practicing expressing where I got the inspiration from for when Martha invites me back, or Oprah, Ellen, ,Rachael, Wendy, etc. invites me on (wishful thinking!) or perhaps even from my own show. It goes something like this...

"We had been to Borders, the same one where I met Martha Stewart at her book signing, and Cliff was buying all these Writer's Digest Magazines which HE WASN'T GOING TO READ!! That has got to be a "pet peave" with me. He drives me crazy with it! He's always ordering, buying, subscribing, etc. to things he NEVER uses!!!!! He couldn't just buy ONE...NOOOOOOO he had to buy 3 or 4!!! We got into this BIG argument over money. He had taken me to this "very nice" restaurant and the argument carried on until we ALMOST didn't have dinner!!! I don't recall exactly how, but things simmered down and we had an enjoyable dinner, considering. While waiting for Cliff to finish (I inhale he savors), I began thumbing thru the Writer's Digest Magazine and discovered articles about book publishing and publishers. One thing led to another and the next thing I know I had designed the cover for my coloring book from a sheet of paper! I took that paper template (I hope I still have it somewhere) to my box company and had it designed! What could have been a disasterous night proved to be an evening of ispiration, creativity and the birth of a new idea! Thanks, honey - I love you!"

I hope to find those "original" Writer's Digests, still in the bag with the receipt - never read by "you know who?!?!?" I'll let you know when I'm on...stay tuned!
