So I got voted off the island...

Yup, it happened. Round 1 of CWTS and I've landed in the bottom 3 already.

While I am a bit disappointed, I'm really not surprised.
Did you see who I was up against?! These women are truly amazing! They are much more experienced  and skilled than I happen to be. Many have been blogging for years, some are professional designers, some are full-time bloggers, etc! And I am none of those. 

If I'm being completely honest, the more I thought about this contest after I got in, the more disappointed I was to have made it in. Now before you go all crazy on me, hear me out! Blog Puberty. Looks at projects I was doing a year ago. Two years ago. And now? 
I wish I waited until I gained more experience. 

So, overall, sorry to say it, but I am relieved beyond belief to get that weight off of my shoulders. No more thinking about only if other people will like my project. I'm doing this shit for myself! And if you like it? Awesome! And if you don't? That's totally fine! I started this blog to document my changes as an amateur designer and share my fun things with the world.

If I were to win, I don't think I'd use the title as well as other bloggers out there!

Good Luck to the rest of the bunch! I'll be playing along for fun, so stop on by!

  1. I can't believe it!! I usually just peruse blogs and don't typically comment. But I wanted to let you know that I voted for your chair knock off...seriously, I thought you would win! I can't believe you were voted off! L-O-V-E the chair!

  2. I voted for you! Loved your chair!!!

  3. When I clicked over to the CWTS voting round and saw all the amazing knockoffs, I seriously could not have called which 9 would make it and which 3 would not - they were all INSANELY creative! I think your attitude towards the whole thing is very inspiring, and so is your knock-off project! You totally belonged there and you are totally going places with your creativity, girl!
    I hope you enjoyed my pep talk ;)

    1. Aww, Brynne! Thanks! I enjoyed it very much.

  4. I was really sad when I read sad. I voted four your project and was hoping you would make it because I thought it would be so cool if you would win – as the youngest in the contest!

    Love, Midsommarflicka
