Lightning Bolt's a Comin'

I don't know whether to be embarrassed or what...

I submitted "Los Girasoles" into the Fiber Art for a Cause ACS fundraiser and it was posted Friday. Yay in that regard as I was glad to be a part of it, but as of yesterday, it was still unsold although everyone else's around mine sold. Today one of my family members told me they couldn't find it on the site at all and they were right--it wasn't there anymore. I contacted Virginia and it turns out that she did take it down when refreshing the page with new pieces. Now my piece is going to be returned to me. She said my work was beautiful, but I am so very sad about this. It's just a postcard right?

I feel a little wrong for even saying anything about this.

Where's that lightning bolt, because I need to get out of its way.

I'm sorry Elle, that must feel sucky.
Do you want to trade postcards? I didn't get to get in on the buying frenzy and I'd love to have yours.

Elle, I think anyone would feel the same if that had happened. But the focus is your heart and the reason you offered it to the project in the first place...that doesn't change.

Oh I feel so sorry.....I kept looking at the site on sunday and wondering why that guy was so lonely....I didn't buy any....I wondered as I looked why people bought what they did....and while I thought there was some that were outstanding I think people bought largely on name recognition...I am sorry you feel bad....I would also have fun trading!!!

I was watching your postcard too Elle and was feeling so badly that it had not sold. That experience and feeling is exactly why so many artists don't put their work out there. I am so proud that you did it! I'm sorry that it didn't go well. I sure can't say why, because the card was lovely. I loved the thread painted flowers and the asymetrical design. I'm glad it worked out so that everyone was happy!
