First, I know this is about my tutus, but I felt like it was more appropriate over here since it almost felt review-like (at least to me).
Second, I do realize that this is just me having a pity party, but darn it, I deserve it! So if you are not in the mood for some whining, you probably want to stop reading now.
Third, I do realize that I am unabashedly (am I using that word right?...must checked and I think I am) asking for comments and really, I am okay with that. So here goes.
I am disappointed. Really disappointed. Really really really disappointed. I applied for a local Arts and Craft Fair called Crafty Bastards it is sponsored by the Washington City Paper. And I just got an email that I did not in.
Apparently I am not crafty enough. I know that there were over 400 applicants and only 95 spaces. But darn it, I really wanted to get in (insert whiny voice). I read over how they wanted the application to go and I sent them super cute pictures of tutus and kids in tutus. And I make really neat tutus, they are fun and different (at least I think they are different) than ballerina tutus (not that there is anything wrong with ballerina tutus, I just make different ones).
From the website:
What kinds of crafts will I find?
Reconstructed clothing, punk rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, whimsical and demented plush toys, handspun yarn, screen-printing, pottery, furniture, avant-garde art and so much more!
I totally fall into this category (stomping my feet in frustration). I know that I have done other ones, and there are people who actually ask me to do their fairs, but I wanted to do this one (stomp, stomp). It is juried which means that it is judged by my peers. And that was really important to me. Sigh...
Anyway, I had to get my frustration and disappointment out and now I was hoping for some love. If you have a Sara Rose Tutu and you love it or even if you just love to look at them online, leave me a comment and let me know please. Heck, even if you don't love them but want to make me feel better, leave me a comment and make something up.
