contest


I entered a contest.

I feel a little like I'm ten years old again. You know like when you enter to win the contest on the back of the Froot Loops box.  Yeah, my mom bought us Froot Loops.  Don't judge. I turned out bionic, remember?

So I entered an art contest.  With the above picture. It makes my stomach flip flop just a wee bit thinking about it.  I hate to be in competition with anyone. If I don't compete then I can't lose. And if I don't lose then there is no proof that I'm not all that I think I am in my head.  No, I'm not a competitor.  So this is a stretch for me.

Funny thing is, I don't even know what the prize is exactly.  The instructions were pretty vague.

And I don't really care.  I just entered because, well... now that I think about it, I'm not really sure why I entered at all.

Well wish me luck anyway.

And in case you are wondering, I purposefully didn't tell you what contest I entered so you won't go enter yourself.  I hate competition remember?

Maybe I'll be the only entry.

Ha! My thoughts exactly! I did enter a "tag" contest last Christmas. I was mortified when I saw who did win-my art wasn't even in the ball park compared to this gal!!!

I hope you do win though because that man up there is a HOOT!! I laughed as soon as I opened your blog. You are not only in the ball park, you've created a HOME RUN! Good luck :)

The world would be a so much better place if all of its leader were required to wear flowery hats.

Good luck with the contest. No matter what, just remember that you're ALWAYS the winner here.

Good Luck! I have not entered an art contest since high school. I have been tempted as of lately, but I am super competitive and like yourself I would just like to keep thinking I am the best ever crafter there is. I like my fantasy world.
