A bit of Cosmo Love... :)

First off, uhm.. I didn't post yesterdays post. I thought I'd set it up with the auto timer, and I guess I forgot. So I'll save it for another day, it's just highlighting some of my favorite things right now.

As I'm sure many of you have noticed, Cosmo Cricket is once again having a DT call. I can hardly believe it's been a year! I remember so vividly seeing my name on the top 12 list last year and basically hyperventilating. I was SO excited, it was truly my first big toot, and I was on cloud nine. I did not make it to the final 6, but in the end It was truly a blessing I think. Julie was SO sweet and left me with some awesome praise about my work and photography. Why a blessing though? It made me reevaluate the kind of paper artist I was and what I wanted to be.

Around that time I made the well, I don't want to say "switch", because I do still scrapbook, but my focus is now mostly on cards. And it was with the gained confidence of that, and the prompting of a friend months later that led me to start submitting my cards. In the past nine months I think I've had 30 cards accepted for publication and one mini album. Which for me, is truly amazing, and something I never though I'd see. I am so very blessed and thankful.

So once again I am throwing my hat into the ring and hoping for the best, or the worst. Because the worst case scenario is I get to grow a little and have a wonderful excuse to eat some more movie theater popcorn, which is my comfort food of choice. Although I do hope the growing would happen with my art, and not waistline ;)
(Speaking of movies...Harry Potter 6 soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!)
