I’m a Semi-Finalist!


With shaky hands and a racing heart, I checked Lilla’s blog this first thing this morning. The list of semi-finalists for Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search was up.

Again and again I counseled myself– the outcome doesn’t matter, I am proud of the piece that I submitted, there were 1500 entries, and the the level of talent was (is?) incredibly fierce.

What really matters is that I put my fears and insecurities aside and gave it my all.

And then I saw it. My name and my submission, second from the top of the list. Check it out.

Global Talent Search Semi-Finalist

Of all of those incredible journal cover entries, mine was one of the top 50! I can still barely breath, and I’m pretty sure my feet haven’t touched the ground yet today.

This past week has included some disappointments–I am having an issue with one of my eyes, and yesterday, a line of wall art that I have been working on for Oopsy Daisy was rejected, including my lobster above.

So for today, I am going to celebrate and enjoy this moment.
