After I sent it I did not give it a second thought. I already had it in my head I was not going to get in so I just put it out of my mind.
Well last week I found out that the piece I sketched out was accepted and they want a couple more pieces.
After I read the email I just sat there shocked. I realized the piece I sketched now had to be made in real life and I needed to come up with more ideas.
I am very excited and thrilled to be part of this event. It will take me a couple of months to complete the three piece, they are nothing like the pieces I design for my Etsy shop, but large pieces that will be in a fashion show and displayed in a gallery for 3 months.
The gallery is a beautiful space
Here is a brief video of last years event

How often do you not participate in creative opportunities because you don't think you have a chance?
Maybe now is the time to put yourself out there and try something you have never done before. There are a variety of opportunities online and off, you just have to submit your best work and see what happens.
Have you ever just applied to participate in a show, gallery event, or be featured on a blog? How did it work out?
