Yes! Finally I've updated my profile photo.
The other one was about five years old - taken in 2007. I hated it, it made me look old and matronly, and not at all friendly. But it was the best I had at the time. Really!
And I am friendly. Truly I am!
With all this book publicity stuff going on, I knew the photo had to be changed. Can't be frightening away book buyers. LOL
So I dolled myself up (I never wear makeup, but actually put some on for this!), added a bright scarf, and got hubby to do his worst. Er, best.
But I'm not photogenic. And I hate having my photo taken. So it was a long drawn out process. More than a dozen photos later, only two were even close to publishable. Ack!
The photo you see now is the best of a bad lot. I'm sorry that most of you don't even recognise me now, and have to check out my cards to see if it's the Cheryl Wright they thought they knew.
It had to be done, it really did.
I'm over being seen as a dark and matronly person. I prefer this happy person who loves life and loves to craft.
