Re: Make a Modern yet Rustic Fall Centerpiece

KAYTET: I HAVE HEARD THIS JUDGEMENT FROM PEOPLE THAT CAPITALS ARE YELLING. I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF PERSON DECIDED TO MAKE THAT A "RULE" BUT SOME OF US HAVE EYE TROUBLES AND HAVE TO HAVE ALL CAPS TO READ ON A MONITOR SCREEN WITH ANY EFFICIENCY IN TIME. I DON'T ACCEPT THAT NONSENSE "RULE" AS PART OF MY COMPUTER COURTESY. IT IS SAD THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO JUDGEMENTAL AS TO ASSIGN YELLING AS AN ASSUMPTION. I WAS NOT YELLING AT YOU, I NEVER YELL AT PEOPLE ...THEY ARE NOT THAT POWERFUL IN MY LIFE TO CONTROL MY BEHAVIOR.
I HAVE SEEN YOUR WORK BEFORE... ON THIS SITE AND FRANKLY, WELL I HAVE KEPT QUITE QUIET ABOUT IT. IT HAS SADDENED ME TO SEE THE QUALITY OF WHAT I SEE ON THIS SITE. I DON'T SEE ANY IMPROVEMENT AT ALL. YOU CAN DO BETTER! I AM SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU BUT AS A "PROFESSIONAL" YOU ARE IN NEED OF A WAKE UP CALL. THIS ISN'T TO SAY YOU DON'T HAVE A TALENT TO BE DEVELOPED, BUT CODDLING YOU ISN'T GOING TO HELP YOU GROW.
BY THE WAY, I AM MANY TIMES YOUR SENIOR. I LOOK MUCH YOUNGER THAN I AM AS WELL, SO WHAT? I WAS CALLING YOU "YOUNG LADY" BASED ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR WORK REPRESENTED HERE. I HAVE TRAINED MANY, MANY STUDENTS IN DESIGN AND IN CREATING UNIQUE PRODUCTS WHICH SELL ACROSS A BROAD VARIETY OF MARKETS. I ALSO HAVE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS FOR DECADES AND AM HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FOR MY DESIGNS.
I HAD HOPED YOU WOULD TAKE THIS AS CONSTRUCTIVE... AS I DID OFFER YOU A PLACE TO GO TO STUDY AND LEARN BETTER OVERALL ASTHETICS FOR YOUR FINISHED PRODUCTS OF THIS TYPE.
I SINCERELY HOPE THIS CLEARS IT UP FOR YOU. MY INTENT WAS NOT TO STRIKE A NERVE IN YOU, BUT TO HELP YOU ADVANCE TO A BETTER DESIGN INTERPRETER.
ARTIST MUST GROW THEIR SKILLS AND EXPAND THEIR CAPABILITIES TO REMAIN CURRENT. I HOPE YOU WANT TO DO THAT FOR YOUR SELF AND YOUR FUTURE.
NOW... I SAY TO YOU, DON'T DICTATE TO ME WHAT I SAY. DESPITE THE BEST EFFORTS OF THE LIBERALS, THIS IS STILL A FREE SPEECH COUNTRY AND THIS SITE INVITES COMMENTS. IF YOU REFUSE TO LET THE TRUTH BE HEARD, THEN THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES! (I AM ASSUMING YOU HAVE HEARD THAT CHILDREN'S STORY?) I AM NOT BEING SARCASTIC, BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN OF EDUCATION, ATLEAST THE LAST TWO GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE HAVE NOT BEEN EXPOSED TO A LOT OF THE MORE IMPORTANT STORIES ABOUT CHARACTER AND ETHICS... SO THEY CAN'T BE EXPECTED TO UNDERSTAND THAT REFERENCE. (JUST A FOOT NOTE OF EXPLANATION.)
MY WISH FOR YOU IS SUCCESS IN GROWTH OF YOUR SKILLS. I HOPE YOU ASPIRE TO COMPETE WITH YOUR FORMER WORK AND BE EXCEPTIONALLY BETTER THAN YOUR PAST SELF.
BY THE WAY, I TRULY HOPE YOU STILL HAVE YOUR GRANDMOTHER TO ENJOY. IF SO, MAYBE SHE WILL ENCOURAGE YOUR TO SPREAD YOUR WINGS A LITTLE MORE DARINGLY.

Re: Make a Modern yet Rustic Fall Centerpiece

IT IS JUST SAD TO HAVE TO STATE, BUT THIS IS JUVENILE. FURTHER, THERE IS NO BALANCE OR GRACEFULLNESS TO THIS EXECUTION OF HER IDEA. PLUS, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH COLOR TO STIMULATE ANYONE'S INTEREST. WHAT IS THIS, "DEAD LOOKING RESULTS RISING FROM THE PROMISE OF SEEDS IN A JELLY JAR". I JUST FIND MYSELF WONDERING WHERE I HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE. I DON'T MEAN THIS TO BE HATEFUL, BUT THIS IS WHAT SEEDLINGS LOOK LIKE WHEN THEY DON'T MAKE IT. AFTER THE HORRIBLE DROUT WE HAD THIS PAST 6 MONTHS IN TEXAS, I HAVE SOME BRANCHES IN GLASS JARS WHICH I WAS ROOTING INTO NEW PLANTS. THEY DIED AND LOOK REMARKABLY LIKE THIS "CENTERPIECE". WHERE IS THERE CREATIVE ENERGY IN THIS EFFORT? THE CENTERPIECE IS SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT THE ABUNDANCE OF A HARVEST, BE IT FLORAL OR PRODUCE. THIS RESEMBLES HALLOWEEN. I REGRETFULLY HAVE TO INJECT THAT THIS JUST REPRESENTS FAILURE TO "GET" THAT FACT. "MODERN"?? I THINK NOT... JUST PLAIN STARK. MODERN MEANS FUNCTION WITH SLEEK LINES. FINALLY, WHO THINKS A BUNCH OF OLD JELLY JARS ARE GRACEFUL AND SOOTHING TO LOOK AT ON THE TABLE. I KEEP ONE UNDER EACH SINK TO HOLD OLD TOOTHBRUSHES TO USE FOR SCRUBBING THE LIME DEPOSITS AWAY FROM MY FAUCETS. I'M SORRY YOUNG LADY, BUT YOU NEED TO RETURN TO SOME ART STUDYS AND ACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH REAL "LIVING" NATURAL ART AND THE GRACEFUL BEAUTY OF NATURE. SHAME ON YOU FOR EVEN TRYING TO PASS THIS OFF AS YOUR EFFORT. NEXT TIME AT LEAST FIND SOME BRANCHES WITH SOME GRACEFUL AND FLOWING FEATURES OR TANGLED INTERESTING FORMATIONS...AND SOME HEIGHT. THE JAPANESE HAVE LONG HAD AN ART OF SIMPLE FLOWER ARRANGING, I THINK IT IS CALLED IKEBANA IT IS TRULY SERENE AND HAS GREAT BALANCE AND BEAUTY. THIS EXAMPLE IS A TRUE WASTE OF EVERYONE'S TIME! PLEASE LEARN WHAT IS ALREADY OUT THERE FIRST THEN PUT YOUR OWN TWIST OF "MODERN" ON IT.
