And that is Artisan Award entries. 'Cause I didn't enter.
There were many reasons why I did not:
1) No time.
2) No ideas.
3) No time.
4) No mojo.
5) No time.
Did I mention "no time"? Oh yeah...guess I did!
However,the major reason I did not enter was not because of not enough time NOW. It was mostly because I have witnessed what my good friend Wendy has had to do as an Artisan Award winner this year, and I knew in my heart that I just could NOT commit to spending the significant amounts of time and energy needed. I could not do it justice, and so I decided to sit this year out. Maybe next year.
I could have scraped up the time now and the mojo would have come, but if I did and I were to win, I didn't think I could keep it up.
I think I do have the stuff to win though. I did make one card that I have been saving just in case I decided to jump into the ring. Now that the entry deadline is here, I guess I might as well show it to you! Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Stippled Rose, Just Thinking; Paper - Tea for Two DSP, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake; Ink - Lucky Limeade, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso; Other - Window Frames Framelits, gold Stampin' Dazzle pen, So Saffron marker, Basics Jewels rhinestones, Very Vanilla Seam binding, sewing machine, Finishing Touches Edgelits, dimensionals, sponge wedges.
Yes, that is paper tole. It is GOJUS (YILM!) I coulda been a contendah!
In other news, I am down 27.3 pounds AND I have a new car,as mine would have cost $3600 to repair, which was almost as much as it was worth. Lookie:
Well, I need to head off to get my beauty sleep. Best of luck to all of you who entered Artisan this year! Ta!
