For years now I have tried and tried to get into Swiss Days... a wonderful event over Labor Day weekend in Midway, Utah where there are MOBS of people and more crafts than anyone could ever need. But EVERYONE applies and not nearly as many as apply get in.
Well, this year I had a breakthrough!! I didn't actually get accepted, but I did get accepted as an alternate. Can you believe it? I feel so lucky! They even said in this letter that I should not be disappointed. That this is a great compliment. And I agree. I didn't get rejected this time. This is HUGE. So I just had to share this news. Hooray for me.
