Fire Mountain Gems contest

On a lark, I entered a few of my BJP pages into the Fire Mountain Gems contest, in the free-form expression category. Since they all have the same theme, I thought it would be fun, and I buy most of my seed beads from FMG anyway.

Well, I just got the word that they have made the first cut and FMG wants me to send them in for photographing and final judging. What a hoot, huh? :-)

How wonderful. It's good to enter things. Good Luck. Sandy

Thanks guys! Sandy, you're right...last year I got a second place in the bracelet category and the prize is money to spend at FMG. Since I do that anyway, what harm can it do? LOL!!

GOOD FOR YOU! You go, girl! I am impressed! I guess I am too critical of my stuff to enter a contest! LOL!

Congratulations Cyndi! Your energy is amazing Woman ;9

KrispiS, you should just do it! Probably no one ever thinks their own stuff is *really* good enough. I enter lots of stuff and get rejections, and move on! It does get easier, especially after a few things have been accepted ;-)

Thank you Ellen! It's not so much energy as it is not knowing better!

I'll be looking for your pieces in the catalog. I hope they make the final cut. That's where I do a lot of shopping too. Showing everyone's work this way is quite inspiring. Good luck.
