MLLA: When you finally go out and buy something you thought you'd lost, you will find the original item.
Yep; it just happened to me. After several months of looking everywhere in my wee house for my copy of Pamela Allen's Think Like an Artist (DVD), I ordered another copy. It arrived Friday and I watched it yesterday afternoon as the weather snowed and I stitched. Lovely to see it again -- and yes, I learned a couple of new things in the re-watch.
This afternoon I got down on my hands and knees to get a close look at my modem, preparatory to attaching my new wireless router for my new computer (laptop). And there it was; the DVD, that is -- under my computer desk back near the outer wall, behind some books I'd stored under the desk. None the worse for wear.
What's a girl to do? Much as I admire Pamela, I don't need two copies of her DVD! And so...I'm giving away my new (only watched once) copy, and putting my old (equally beloved) copy back on the shelf with its instructional and inspirational sisters.
Let's see...what say I use my friendly Random Sequence Generator to pick a recipient for me from any comments to THIS post between now and Wednesday, April 17 at 11:59 p.m..MDT (to be drawn Thursday a.m., at the start of my Very Busy Eleven Days). And if you have an experience to relate about Murphy's Law of Lost Articles in your life, do share!
