That's it. The third time. My work has been rejected again by Bead & Button's "Bead Dreams" contest. Okay. I give up! I am lying on the railroad tracks. I dare someone else to run me down. To take some of the pain of this rejection was the big (for bead sales) check from the Coast Highway Art Collective. The $50 rental fee for the month was much cheaper than the 1/3 cut other places take as commission. So my gamble to go with this new venture, is, at the present, paying off and in a very complimentary way! Fie on contests! I'll take the vote by the $$ and the many (nearly 100) views on my Etsy site. No sales there but I only had to pay $.40 for the month!
