Remember these?

                                                             Glass Category

Gemstone category
 I entered them in the Bead Star competition.

I didn't get in.  I would be lying if I said I was not dissapointed.  I really wanted a shot at it.  So now, I go to that insecure place, and pic them apart.  Are they ugly?  Not original enough?  Too original?  Are my pictures not good enough?  *sigh*  In the glass category there are 10 charm bracelets out of the 20 picked.  Is this rigged so that the kind of project they are looking for in the book wins?  I don't know.  But I can't let it get me down. 

I guess in the end, if you never get rejected, it means that you never put yourself out there. 

So there.  I will let that thought sink in tonight and wake up ready to go for it all over again tomorrow!

Congrats to the girlies who made it in!  There are lots of great necklaces.....AND if you want to help me out, you can vote for Erin Strothers wonderful necklace here.  (she used my heart pendant in it.)

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow that talent to the.... place where it leads.

Don't wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater.

  1. Believe me I know what you are feeling right now. I entered every category and only 3 of my pieces were accepted.
    Having just come off my very painful loss in the Vintaj challenge and a few more (I think it makes it 100) painful magazine rejections I am feeling your pain.
    I am sorry neither of your pieces were chosen, I think they are both beautiful and different. Too different perhaps? ((hugs))

  2. I'm so sorry your pieces didn't make it. I love them both. Maybe the judges just don't appreciate different styles? Don't let it get you down though. They're both great.

  3. Thanks guys. I am feeling better today! I knew I would after some sleep. I am sure there will be many many many more rejections. I will getin or win when its meant to happen:)

    Many Blessing to you guys! Thank you sincerely for your kind words.
