Very sad news.....

again! I tried out for another DT. Another one in the wind so to say! I'm going to vent a little. My total of DT's I've tried out for is just out of this world. I mean really. Do I suck that bad at scrapbooking, cardmaking or altering. I mean really. Am I not answering the application the right way with wrong answers. I mean really what is it! I'm bummed again about another DT and not getting it. Would you like me to tell you exactly how many DT's I've tried out for since the beginning of the year (2007)

22

Yes that's right twenty-two. Two of them twice each and made the DT on one of the two. I'm really really grateful for that DT. She has given me the chance to show her what I can do. And I can never tell her how much I appreciate her given me that chance. HUGS to Nicole at Scrapbooker's Club House. Link located on the side bar. So really what's wrong with me! I work my butt off and still NOTHING! I've got my hat in on another DT and sometime this month we will know who gets it. I'm really having my doubts about getting this one to. After you don't get on so many why should a person even think they will get on. Apparently I SUCK big time somewhere in the system!

Sorry for the novel! Just needed to vent!

Oh Dawn! Chin up Girl! Your work is awesome and I am happy to be working with you on the SBCH DT! I believe that God has a plan for everyone and the 21 other teams don't know what they are missing! Don't sweat it and don't let it define who you are and what your style is! You are awesome!

Dawn, I know the feeling!!!! Just remember there are so many people that love your cards and LO's, me being one of them!!! I'm happy to be on message boards with you and I hope you don't take it as a personal attack on your abilities. There are so many factors that go into DT's, most of them out of our control. Be happy with the beautiful work YOU DO and keep spreading your sunshine on the message boards!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo!!!

You certainly do NOT suck at all! As a matter of fact I think you are an amazing designer! your cards are incredible and your layouts are WOW!!, and don't even get me started on how fantastic your altered projects are! I think your time will come, you just have to find the right place. Keep your chin up, and keep on smilin! :)

You dont suck ,your cards are brilliant ,i love to see what you do ,just give it time they will come knocking on your door Dawnx

I love all your stuff, and I don't necessarily love everything that design teams come up with. Also, I think we should make things because we love making things, and not to fit in with what we think will suit others (I fall into that trap sometimes, but I never really enjoy myself as much) Blimey - you poor thing - now you got 70 essays back!!

Yo Dawn

I'm with you on the DT trail vent altho' I doubt if I have applied for 22 times this year ! lol .

I do like what Scrapgal posted on not making it to their DT . & most important of it all as they say - Yes do not take it personally.

There is a trend I notice amongst the so called trendier sites on what they seem to look for in a DT member. Unless you want to analyse that trend & consider adjusting your style to reflect some of those trends - for eg doing fancy paper cutouts coupled with lots of layering seems to work with many DTs - but I find that hypocritical. ( pardon me & no offence intended if any reader here likes to do cut outs ! ) I mean if our styles are just not that way then we should just be happy & excel at out own unique styles !

Most times I think my style is just too simple & very easily recreated ( eg with my cards - I think some of my layouts are highly embellished tho') so thats why I think I get no where . Plus I know I dont have fanciful or even fantastic photgraphy with my layouts. But I'm just happy showing my work at various online galleries knowing there are folks who enjoy & even look forward to seeing my work !

I think it's important to make things that YOU like, and don't worry so much about design teams! Keep putting yourself out there, but don't take it all so seriously! There are a lot of talented scrapbookers/paper crafters out there, and if you don't make it, it doesn't mean a thing! Create, make art, and enjoy yourself! Keep trying . . . it will happen!

Chris said...

Awww Dawn don't give up... your work is fab..I love to come by and see what you have created next :D
I don't think that you should take not getting on the DT's as a reflection of your work at all... it's beautiful :D

pamala said...

Dawn, you DO make fab creations!!! You ARE a fab person! You ARE a ray of sunshine. Making different DTs is not the mark of talent, there are so many factors out of your control. Everyone here has expressed it very well. You are SO fab on Scrapbooker's Clubhouse, you have been a great addition to the team. Other sites would be lucky to have you! There is a plan for us, and this is all part of the plan, even if it is the bumpy-road-not-so-fun part. There is something additional great out there for you, I know it....... :) Hugs hugs and more hugs you fab artist and designer you- Pam

Oh Dawn, don't get too disheartened, your work does not suck - I think it is fab and you have wonderful ideas nad designs. :) I think you must keep to making your cards the way you want and not fit into someonelse's style - the DT don't know what they're missing. :) Keep happy and positive. :)

Hey, girl, cheer up! We started together in this mess almost one year ago on a DT together, remember? And we have cried our tears together for sure. There are lots of people who are still trying to get on their first DT, so be proud of your accomplishments!! You have talent galore. Keep trying if this is what you really want to do. *HUGS*
