109:Tootsie Pop Challenge Winners
Well the voting is now complete. I must admit, part of this project turned out great, but part of it was not how I envisioned it. I had hoped that more people would come and vote on these little gems of art, but it seems that not that many people stopped by to see. Mostly friends and family of some of the entrants, which was fine, but I really was hoping to have more people in the blogosphere stop by. But hey, you know what, their loss! I was pleased that people had fun with this project and enjoyed their little Tootsie time!! That made me happy! I want to thank EVERYONE who entered, and everyone who signed up to enter, but didn’t get the time (Lord knows that has happened to me almost every year in my local guild’s challenges!!).
Here are the top 5 winners in order:
tied for fifth, so I will figure out something to send to both of them.
I have some more to talk about, but this was probably the big one for those who entered, so I thought I better put that up first. I am running out of time this morning, so I will have to put off some of what I was going to share until later. There is NEVER enough time is there?
Okay, here is my last bit to share. My friend Mark Lipinski has done it again! ANOTHER line of fabric is coming out of the Pickle Road Studios ( I know Pickle Road and Blue Nickel sound so similar, but we had never even heard of each other when we came up with our studio branding concepts) Mark shared a sneak peak of it on his blog. I thought I would steal a jpeg just to tease you and send you to his September 1st entry for more…you know you can’t get enough of this stuff!
Here is what I lifted from Mark: (Hey Mark, I hope you don’t mind, I am sending them all your way though!) It also is in Blues and greens that you can see at his site, but I am particularly partial to these deep reds. I don’t think it will be out for awhile, but he is debuting it at Fall Market in Houston. Way to go Mark!
