What a week...

So...I applied to participate in Spring Bada-Bing, a juried craft show sponsored by the Richmond Craft Mafia. Monday I got my rejection email. It's so funny because I was kinda hoping that I didn't get picked because I was freaking out a little on the inside. I mean, this would be my FIRST show...so much prep involved...of course I like to work myself into a nice lather with worry, lol. So the rejection should have given me a bit of relief, right?


Nope.


I was once rejected from Arts in the Park, another juried show in Richmond a few years ago, basically because by the time I entered, they had soooo many bag vendors they said. That time I was okay with the rejection because I wasn't where I wanted to be creatively AND the fee was like $250 or something. This time was different. I was disappointed and curious as to why I didn't get in. Not like I think I'm the innovator of the handmade purse or anything. I was just wondering what I needed to do to step my game up this time. I was kicking myself because when I applied my main site wasn't finished. I am so proud of it that I thought "Man...they would have picked me if they saw the site".


Strangest thing...Wednesday I got an email saying that I got the wrong email...so I actually DID get in! Crazy, right?


To top it all off, VCU beat Duke last night in the first round of the NCAA tournament...can you imagine?
(Even though they won, all the stuff I've seen on the 'net has pics of Duke...hey! Give us our P's! Let's be fair and praise the winners! Would it kill you to put a VCU player on the front page, YAHOO?)



GO RAMS!!!
Could I possibly be having the best week EVER?

What a story! I guess that was fate's way of making you a better person by making you think you hadn't gotten in. You reflected and dealt with it then get the all go sign. Congratulations! I found your site from the etsy blog thread.
