I entered around 7pm last night but my entry isn’t here. I had an error (there was a box I had to put my surname into?) then I chose submit again, then it said ” Good luck/thank you for your entry” I thought it may have been awaiting moderation – but it still isn’t here! Here is my entry again –
I’ve been resting on my laurels for too long. Now is the time to bite the bullet, grab the bull by the horns, and make my mark. I need to get my head out of the clouds, reach for the stars, follow my dreams, and take a leap of faith…. A Home Staging Course through the International Institute of Home Staging is just what the doctor ordered.
In all seriousness, I would be extremely grateful to receive this prize. It would be an amazing opportunity that I would throw myself into with gusto, to carve out the path I would like to go down, a future in all things interiors!
I can’t wait til this is drawn! I have my fingers crossed, and then crossed again.
