Making goals and being "sew inspired"

I took a big step and submitted a project to a papercrafting magazine this week.  I wasn't selected, but instead of being deterred, I think it has motivated to keep trying and perhaps one of my goals for 2011 will be to get published. 
Here is the project I submitted.  The theme was sewing inspired papercrafts.  I made a wall hanging using Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl line.  Honestly, I am a huge Cosmo Cricket fan.  They are one of my favorite lines.  I love their creative themes, color palettes and whimsical patterns. 

Ironically I do not sew.  If I can make it out of paper, ribbon and glue I will, but needle and thread and sewing machines intimidate me.  Perhaps that will be another goal for 2011, learning to sew. 
Now I need to figure out someone to gift this to.  Anyone out there enjoy sewing and need a decoration for your sewing room? 
Also this weekend I went to the the CK Convention in Bellevue.  Slightly overwhelmed by all the amazing product and the sheer number of crafters that were there.  Happily returned with a number of great things which will soon be showcased on this blog.
