My stomach's in knots

About this design:

I just entered my first (not to mention it's also juried) arts and crafts festival... crossing my fingers that they'll let me in. These are some of the photos I sent them, hopefully they like it. People keep telling me they LOVE what I do, I'm just not good at self-promotion and too shy to tell them I made it and whip out a business card. This would be way easier for me, letting people just come up to my booth.

    Oh, Good luck to you! Nerves are always the worst the first time. I still get nervous applying to juried shows; I think that is natural.
    I think the turquoise necklace is an exceptionally intelligent choice! it is lovely, simple, but classy
