Pretty Little Studio Design Team Member, Me?

YES ME! For those of you who read my blog post Pretty Little Studio Design Team post you will remember that I put a lot of work into my design team member submission and it paid off! I am really, really proud of myself. Why? because I almost gave up.

I almost gave up when I first decided to start sharing my passion for memory art.

I almost gave up when I realized I was still unpacking from an overseas move and my studio was a mess.

I almost gave up when I tried to create but was completely exhausted after my second week at a new job in a a foreign country.

I almost gave up when the sewing machine ripped my submission’s background paper, and the felt lace I was embroidering ripped.

I almost gave up when the little voices in my head said are you really good enough?

I almost gave up….

Then Mr. C. said, “Why don’t you just give up?” Hearing him say the thought that had been swirling in my head gave it real meaning. And I knew that giving up meant giving up on myself. I could not give up.

Inspired I ran upstairs to adhere gaffer tape and applied button’s to hide the seam where I attached additional felt. I spent hours taking photo’s, editing and revising my application. I submitted and spent the next few weeks wondering…then I found out…I was a new member of the design team! I was so happy…happy that I won and happy that I did not quit because not quitting is the biggest victory.
