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,
