NOW WHAT !? big, big, gloat

>It has been a tremendous year, but it just got a whole lot better.....Today I received notification that I was selected to be a finalist for the "Niche" award. There were over a thousand entries in the turning category, only four finalists! Previous winners were Cindy Droza and Trent Bosch as I recall.

There will be a big ceremony as part of the Crafts Buyers Show in Philadelphia in February. Lots of publicity stuff and magazine articles.

The "Niche Award" recognizes the top craft artists in the world....and introduces them to the most important buyers of craftwork.

I'm having a hard time putting a sentence together right now...for some reason I'm trying to hold back tears....just unbelievable.
