Project #17--Bullets Over Broadway Opening Night Cards
Well, I have finally finished all of my Opening Night gifts for the current show at my theater. I have discussed some of the cards that I have already made here, here, and here. I am so glad to be finally done and can now move on to other projects.
All in all, I made 30 of the Opening Night Cards (for the crew), 105 Love Cards (21 ensemble members who got 5 cards each), and 45 Quote Cards (9 principle actors who got 5 cards each).
I spent 15 hours on the Opening Night Cards, 25 hours on the Love Cards, and 8 hours on the Quote Cards for a total of 48 hours.
Granted, these cards were unexpected and the burden was self-imposed but I am finally glad to be done with them.
I never really know how these cards are received. Many people understand the craftmanship, some don't. Many appreciate the effort, some don't. And, some people say Thank You, yet many don't. I always feel like The Little Drummer Boy or The Littlest Angel when presenting these cards as gifts.
