I got a phone call from Crystal in Houston today to tell me my entry "Ohm" was a winner in the IQA Show in Nov. I am still shaking. Tuesday we left to go on vacation to Hilton Head, SC. We didn't get here until about 5:00. As I was putting our clothes away my cell phone rang. When I answer it I was disconnected. Didn't think anything about it but later decided I should check my recent calls in case it was one of our children trying to reach us.
The phone number was listed and it said Houston, TX. I had a little heart flutter but decided that it must have been a wrong number. The next day I carried my phone with me all day but once again missed a phone call from TX. About this time I say Marie Elkins post on Art Digest saying she had gotten a call from Crystal at Houston telling her she was one of the top eight winners in the show. So I was really getting excited that perhaps Crystal was calling me to tell me that I was a winner in something. We do all dream about this right?
Today she called again and I actually got to speak to her. She told me that I was cash winner but she couldn't tell me what place. I am still shaking. This is beyond my wildest dreams.
I hadn't planned to go to Houston this year because I start teaching a week long class on that Sunday. I'm going to have to get very organized and get my stuff ready because I AM GOING TO HOUSTON.
For some reason blogger wouldn't let me use paragraphs in my post. Sorry, that makes it difficult to read.
