plan B...the update

So I expect you're all wondering how it's going with plan B? What with it being a year ago since plan A got kicked into touch and everything? Thought so....

I have to say I felt really sorry for all those GTS hopefuls today who didn't get through to the finals. Cos that was me last year. And it was awful!
At first I was gutted...Then completely flat and fed up...Then really annoyed with myself for falling for it all...
Then I got on with plan B
And as luck would have it plan B turned out to be even better than plan A could possibly have been.
I'm busier than I've ever been with my commissions. And I am totally loving being part of the Dotty Wren Studio. Those girls are just ace. Life would be so dull if I didn't get to moan with them every day! We don't need an agent. We can do it ourselves. Turns out there's this thing called the internet these days. You can contact people on it and everything! Sell designs. Sort out commissions. Show people what you can do. It's totally revolutionary! AND no agent's fees. Who knew?!

So if you're a sad loser from this year's comp I'd just like to tell you that you don't have to be the winner to win. Stop moping about and go get yourself a plan B! You'll love it x 

ps....My big dream? Kid's books? It's happening :) Watch this space...

  6. ..ah Dawn, so lovely to read this today...thank you! I'm definitely going through the disappointed flat phase but think you might have something with this plan B business...not sure I want to be tied up in the cogs of someone else's wheels if I'm honest (& I get the feeling there could have been a bit of that!). So, on with plan B, after all its a BIG wide world out there! Thanks for writing this post...just what I needed to hear and all the best with the children's books ... you'll be brilliant (as always!) :-) xx
