I got a chance to go look at the Bead Star site again last night, and discovered they had over 2,000 entries for this contest. They chose a total of 180 (20 in each category) as finalists. And I had 2 out of that selected! I feel good about just getting chosen out of that many entries, even if I don't win.
I'm a wife, Mommy, writer, actor, director, poet, painter, singer, jewelry designer and beader. I have always loved the idea of an 'artist in residence' program... I pray that my life is a reflection of the love, mercy and grace of God.
