Last week was one of ups and some downs here at Casa de Cuckoo. The finishing touches for Celebrate Oz, the kids were on Spring Break and we had fun together and some people's children disappointed me. And normally I would only mention this to close friends in private but.........today when I went to a blog that I just love, Graphics Fairy, I saw that she was having a sharing day on her blog. The only rules to sharing was that at least one of the graphics from her sight be displayed in the posting. Seems fair to me. Well after the information on signing up and getting on with the sharing she also had a PS. "If you see that you post has been removed it was because you didn't use any of my graphics and that is what this sharing is about, silly." or something to that effect.
So for those who didn't bother to post an entry at all or contacted me after the posting time of Celebrate Oz, some of you days afterwards and asked if you could be part of the fun we had.........not this year, silly. I figure that if Karen can call someone silly for not following directions, then so can I.
I am thrilled that most of the participants in Celebrate Oz let it be known that they were committed to the event. I am blown away by the level of the posts showing all the love of Oz in all it's manifestations. I am humbled by your kindness and respect. So to those who did Oz proud, thank you over the rainbow and back. And to those silly ones....well, enough said.
Dorothy has gone to Paris is the work of my granddaughter, GK. She drew this picture after she saw how hurt I was by the number of no shows. I didn't expect her to try to make it better but goodness love her, she did. And in her push to change my aspect, she asked "what will the theme of next year's Celebrate Oz be Oma?" When I looked at her like she had stepped in it.......she smiled and said "too soon huh?" Cracked me up. Why was I worried about anything except enjoying the good parts and letting the rest take care of itself?
