Nope, I don't believe in talent or "naturally good at".The things I was making the first 6 months really sucked and then quickly improved.I always sight inwardly when people say I'm so talented and they wish they were. I always want to tell them it's just putting in the work.

>>10795214Judges can tell and will bump people up categories as needed. I had that idea, too, until I realized that I'll never outcompete people who spent 2 years hand-beading their ball gown
