Well, it only took 2 ½ months, 416 phone calls, 5 full breakdowns complete with tears, and one re-print by the artist at the cost of the framer who messed up the first print, but it’s here! If you remember, I bought this limited edition screen-print after the Keane concert I went to in June, and dropped it off at AC Moore to have it custom framed. The first version came back mid-July with a gigantic, black marker streak across the bottom. “Devastated” would be an understatement. “Devastated and dropped multiple F-bombs” would be more like it. Being that it was a limited edition run of 10 prints, I thought the odds getting it fixed or replaced were nil. Luckily, they were able to contact the artist and negotiate a re-print for me (!!), but we had to wait for the art restorer to evaluate the damage and determine it irreparable, and then wait for the new print to ship from the UK. The magical phone call came on Friday, and early Saturday morning I dragged Boyfriend back to AC Moore to pick it up. I literally hugged it. It looks so beautiful! Now to find a wall spot for it. (And it’s not framed un-evenly, it’s the angle of the camera; the white is even on both sides of the print. Lord knows I inspected the bejesus out of it before I signed off on the pick-up slip.)
And in other redemption news, AllModern reached out to me after the whole duvet fiasco last week and had a customer service rep call me to apologize profusely about the situation. I didn’t get the duvet out of it, but I definitely appreciated getting some acknowledgment of how lame the whole thing was. Thank you, social media, where having a very public hissy fit pays off.
PS. I’m over at InspirationCooperative today sharing some of my favorite things!! Any guesses to what made the Top Ten? Head on over to check! Thank you for having me, Theresa!
