Here's the story - I received a phone call from the editor of one the craft magazines . "I would really like to publish your doll Daisy in a future edition , is that possible ?" Using my professional , efficient voice I reply" yes I will get everything together and get it off to you today" As I haven't done any work for this magazine before I really wanted to make a good impression so off I went to prepare my parcel .
Three hours later and a totally trashed studio, no Daisy!
She has vanished ! Should I call Missing Persons or the police ?
No , all I could do was call the editor and explain the truth . Don't worry I thought of all the stories in the world , fire , flood , the dog ate her but in the end with a lot of apologies the truth was told . The big shot designer (hah) had stuffed up and lost a project .Thank goodness the editor could see the funny side and has accepted another project from me .Very , very embarrassing!
