All Aboard The Reject Train

I am a HUGE fan of Paper Crafts Magazine and was encouraged by a friend to start submitting. Even though I knew it would probably take me a WHILE before I got in, if ever, I decided to go ahead and try. This is my second time, and I haven't gotten in yet but I am not going to give up. My goal is to get in...eventually. I am really enjoying the process (other than the submission form...YIKES) and like the experience and practice it brings. Really I am just trying to get better at my hobby, and hopefully I will get happy mail...someday.
(Apologies. I am SUPER TIRED and am listing an abbreviated supplies list. If I get a chance I will come back and fix it soon. :))
