Can't think of a good title!
Happy Friday! Wanted to post the rest of the cards that I made recently for the CARDS call. I ended up making another one while C was napping yesterday. It is not a fav of mine... I should know better than to try to rush a card or even make one when I wasn't really in the card making mood. Anyway... I am sure you can tell which one I am talking about! :)
So... I would be lying if I said that I wasn't disappointed this morning! The top 15 Gallery Idol ladies were announced today and I was not one of them. I am having lots of mixed emotions! Most of me is okay with it. I didn't expect to win the whole thing anyway... so the top 20 was enough for me. Of course I would have loved to move ahead and I think the feeling of rejection... like you get when you don't get that email for PC or CARDS when you submit your work... is what I am feeling!
What makes me feel better... even though this sounds bad... is the other 4 ladies that were also rejected. Some wonderful and well recognized card makers in the 5 that are not moving on so ... that helps a little with the sting! :) I am sure they are feeling the same as me right now so ... that doesn't make me feel better!
I am very happy for the 15 remaining and wish them all the best! I mean... eventually I will be happy for the 15 remaining and wish them all the best! Ha ha ha ha ha!
Okay.... so enough about that!
Sent my son and hubby to Pump It Up this morning and I have lots to do while they are gone so I had better get after it!
I wanted to post the last of my made cards real quick and say that now that this Idol competition is over... it will be a little more quiet for a while longer on here. The competition got me distracted from my mission for an organized and clean home (that and the fact that I am having some health issues and not feeling real well). Anyway... time for me to suck it up and get back at it!
I think I am having a kidney stone issue but the doc thinks it is either a bladder infection or a cyst on my kidney. The antibiotic he gave me is not helping yet so I am going with a kidney stone since it feels like what I experienced the first time I had a kidney stone... or at least thought I did! Whew... did you get all of that? Whatever the case... I go back in a couple of weeks to see if I am still having issues and then we will take it from there. If I don't end up in the ER with severe pain before then to find out it is indeed a kidney stone! :) TMI? :)
Okay... well... I am exhausted... physically and verbally.. ha! Talk to you all sometime soon!
Peace and Love!
