rejected, but not DE-jected..




in fact, i'm so determined, i won't rest until the purse project receives the exposure it deserves. it's funny, i'm not even really that upset. (aside from this slight lump in my throat) but, i know....i just have a feeling deep down....like if not here, then maybe there. if they didn't get it, maybe someone else WiLL. i think i'm mostly upset because i wanted to SEE it come to life...to thank all the people who gave me precious pieces of themselves for this project...by SHOWiNG them what they helped me create....it lives, it breathes, it vibrates with soul...and i just want to share that with people. does a falling tree really make noise if there's no one there to hear it?

thank you miles, for being a true friend and helping me mentally prepare yesterday. i needed that, more than you'll ever know..

i've had some pretty incredible highs lately, and i'm not about to let this slow me down. for all i know, they didn't want the installation because of the profanity (in which case, i think they missed the point) maybe they didn't have the space for it. maybe it didn't mesh with the other installations. i'd seriously have issues if it came down to poor craftsmanship or execution, as i've honed my techniques and feel quite confident in my abilities.

i guess this is the time to say..
i'll just pick myself up,
dust myself off,
and do it all over again.

Aww, Becky, I'm so sorry!
But I love what you said:

it lives, it breathes, it vibrates with soul...and i just want to share that with people.

And I know that you will! I think you're so right, it might really have come down to just space issues or something trivial like that. I wish they'd clarified that in their letter! But you have such a great attitude, not to mention such incredible talent, that I have *no* doubt that it will come to fruition! And, in the meantime, we'll get you tons of vino and foo-foo drinks tonight... hey, I'm more than happy to contribute to the effort in any way I can! :o)

awwww.
thanks..

rejection's only negative if you start believing it and turning it inward...i had to suck that one up many years ago. i actually think rejections have made me stronger, because you either get things handed to you in life, or you push yourself to be the very best at what you do, more dedicated, focused, less flash in the pan..... so people have no choice but to take notice. it's the THRiLL of the challenge that keeps me going, really.

see, you made me feel instantly better. energized. i love that about Lj. such a great support!!!!!
THANK YOU!!!!!

This is not rejection, it is a better opportunity opening it's door for you.

DO NOT give up on that installation (not that you are but.. this is what my gut is screaming so I had to type it up).. it's an AMAZING concept, I lust to see the piece in real life and it's only a matter of time before you find a space DESERVING of it. Seriously. x

Mannnn.... that is truely too bad for them.

Just thinking about the idea of your project I get goosebumps. I know that just walking into a room filled with your idea would really give me chills and feel good.

pfffft! if they dont want it, they dont DESERVE it. this is one of the most fascinating exhibits ever concieved, and if they can't find a place for it, well.. than i dont think it's a show you'd really want to be a part of?
whatever their reasoning, they're missing out. this piece has HEART. it's got soul. it's got passion and love packaged in perfect purses.

if you need help finding/applying to new places, i'm all about the help n' research :)

giiiiiiiiiirl...i wish you lived up here...
and that
is
an
understatement!!!!!!!!!!

yah, the sting is pretty much healed on this one. and my wheels are spinning, all the time. my next step is to burn more cds and just blanket the town with proposals. i've got a few venues that i'm excited about..places where i walked in and could really visualize this installation. so, in no way have i given up!!! NEVER!!!!!!

and any other venues you can dig up would be GREATLY appreciated. you're a research QUEEEEEEEN...and i'm a total sponge...perfect marriage!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!
