(Can’t believe I waited this long to write this post. No one to blame but myself!)
I’ve been made, (a few weeks ago), a Finalist of the Etsy Design Awards 2015 under the category of Art, Illustration and Papergoods. The winner will be announced on 26/08.
I applied for the award way back on June when I received, you know, one of those general Etsy Seller notifications. I thought why not, filled out the online form, hit the submit button and forgot the whole thing til …!
Though I’ve got the news a few weeks ago, but even now that I’m writing about it, it still feels very unreal to me.
I mean I’m just plain old me making papercuts day in day out and struggling to sell my work online. Being named a finalist of any awards is definitely not on my to-do-list. So you could imagine the shock that ran through my body when I got the email. I still can’t quite describe how I felt, except this:
Being named a finalist of such esteem award is like having an official stamp to declare that I’m now a “proper” Papercut Artist! I’m forever grateful!
THANK YOU Etsy!
