I'm a Semi-Finalist!
With shaky hands and a racing heart, I checked Lilla's blog this first thing this morning. The list of semi-finalists for Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search was up.
Again and again I counseled myself-- the outcome doesn't matter, I am proud of the piece that I submitted, there were 1500 entries, and the the level of talent was (is?) incredibly fierce.
What really matters is that I put my fears and insecurities aside and gave it my all.
Of all of those incredible journal cover entries, mine was one of the top 50! I can still barely breath, and I'm pretty sure my feet haven't touched the ground yet today.
This past week has included some disappointments--I am having an issue with one of my eyes, and yesterday, a line of wall art that I have been working on for Oopsy Daisy was rejected, including my lobster above.
So for today, I am going to celebrate and enjoy this moment.
