Artisan Award -not this year

A couple of months ago I entered the Artisan Award through Stampin' Up!  I now know that I was not one of the 10 winners chosen.

I am a winner.  I spent the hours and hours and hours preparing all the pieces.  The percentage of people that do that much is so small that I consider it a huge feat to have completed the 7 pieces required and mailed it.

The "competition" is only open to Stampin' Up! demonstrators and entries were to be submitted by April 22, 2011.  Being Canadian this meant I had to send out my entry the first week of April to insure that the American based company received it in time.  The obstacle I faced was that I crushed my hand in a rental door van 2 weeks prior to having to hit that first week of April deadline.  I pushed through and mailed the box!  Unable to hold scissors for 10 days and with stitches in 5 different places I still finished the project.  Yeah for me!

I had to include a special little message for all those that handled the box on it's way to the final destination.  Maybe a little corny but it was 3:30 am when I finally finished packing it up.

So....the next few blog posts will include what was all required to be submitted.  Stay tuned for a look at the 2 three dimensional projects, 3 scrapbook pages, and the 5 cards that were packed up.  I will not receive these pieces back.  The company will keep them and they should be on display at the Stampin' Up! convention I will be attending in July.  Only a month away!

Thanks for Visiting,
