I took a chance and entered my temple chest in the Ninth International Art Competition for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  This competition is really incredible, with exquisite work submitted from all over the globe.  Hundreds of people submit their work, and if you're really lucky, your work is chosen for the exhibit in the beautiful church museum on Temple Square.  Other awards are possible in addition to the exhibit, as well. I received notice this week, that my piece had been accepted to be juried in the final round of judging, and that I needed to ship my chest of drawers to Salt Lake City in January!  I screamed.  And screamed.  How can this be?  I am beyond thrilled, and now just have to figure out how to ship it out.
