the end result was that i came 12th out of 220 entries with 189 votes... so obviously i'm very happy :)
i was up against so many professional milliners with years of experience and client support, that i'm shocked i even got in the top 50, let alone the top 15!
the support i received from friends, family, bloggers, work colleagues and strangers who just liked my work has really inspired me to keep the dream alive and keep working towards my millinery career. it was the confidence boost i needed right now, so for that, i just want to say thank you and roll on my next project!
now that it's over, hopefully my blogging routine can get back to normal...
