Remember when you ...

Remember when you were applying for your first job and every business wanted someone who had experience? It just didn't seem fair then and now at 62 I'm feeling that way again! Well I applied to a design challenge to get a 90 day spot at a digital scrapbooking store-no, not a permanent spot, just 90 stupid days. When I went to check about the first round . . . right . . . I didn't make it. Most every name on the list already has their products at stores and have been designing for profit for at least a year some for many more. My feelings are hurt, and I'm really bummed that I couldn't make the cut. You know, I have never used the commercial use products in my designing . . . I design my own. Ever notice the kits you buy have the same tired familiar flowers or butterflies and such? Well, that's because they are purchased from a designer for commercial use and anyone can buy them and use them in their kits. I guess it doesn't pay to be original anymore. Yes, I'm bitter. Sorry. But it just stinks. If my designs aren't any good why have thousands of my kits been downloaded? If my designs aren't good enough why has a publishing company been after me for two months to sign up with them? Phooey!!!!!!!!!!! (now I feel better)
