There it goes....into the hands of the US Postal service. The clerk thought I was nuts when I told her she had to pose for a picture for my blog. But she did it. What a good sport!
Andy Chamberlain told me that once I sent my entry I'd feel like a got a 2 ton gorilla off of my back. She's right. It was more stressful than I thought, especially since I opted to leave my last 3 LO's for after I got back from vacation...bad idea. I had a really hard time with just relaxing and letting whatever came to my mind tranform to a project. I kept thinking that I needed to give the judges "what they wanted". Lisa Pace had a great inspirational post to everyone in the pub forum on 2peas. She said to "just let it come from the heart" and then I realized that I was taking a totally wrong avenue. They want to see creativity. They want to see journaling. They want to see techniques. They want to see that I had fun with my entry. So I created and journaled and used a couple of techniques that I like to use. As a result, I am satisfied with my entry. They are each different and unique and I'm very satisfied with that. I have no idea what the judges will think when they see my work. I don't think there's any feedback unless you win. I'm glad that I stepped up to the challenge and sent in an entry. Andy also said if I didn't I'd regret it for the rest of my life. She's right, I probably would!
Thanks for stopping by!
