It’s been 1.5 years of hardcore Madness for this family, for this Momma. Making my blog public and sharing with you my love of handmade and homemade everything has turned into so much more! I’m back into clay work, finally selling on Etsy, planning my melon trellis, writing my ode to Nutella, COMPETING in crochet design battles and planning a crafters’ retreat for Spring 2014. A few short, busy months has brought about more changes than I can reasonably keep up with but I’m loving the challenge. Thank you folks for supporting me along the way.
TODAY is the day I’ve been waiting for. It’s been weeks now since I found out that I’d been accepted to compete in the Design Wars Challenge and TODAY the final product pics were released and voting has started! Eeeeeeeeeep!!! My design is called the Happy Everything Motif, and I would love your votes but I really want you to vote your conscience and vote for YOUR FAVORITE DESIGN.
Red Heart yarns is sponsoring this amazing event as well!!! No joke! Red Heart!! Not only have they provided the lovely yarn for us (more about that later) but they are providing a gift basket to one of the Voters as well! (Details can be found here.)
Throughout the competition, I’ve been able to interact with the other designers (some were friends already, some are handmade heroes of mine and some are new to me) and let me tell you something, THESE LADIES ARE AMAZING! I’m going to be taking some time here on the blog to do a post about them, and highlight their individual styles and passions. Though this is a battle of sorts, as we pit our design skill against one another, we are also caught up in mutual respect for each others skills and styles. I love this group of talented Ladies and cannot wait to share more about each one of them with you.
In the meantime, make sure you head over to the Design Wars blog to see what they have each designed and to cast your vote~ YOU CAN VOTE EVERY TWELVE HOURS FOR TWO WEEKS, so be sure to make a note to return as often as you can to let your voice be heard.
Below is a pic of my sneak peek photo (mistake and all) . . . before you head over there to see the finished design feel free to leave a comment below with what you think the finished item is.
When the Design Wars Challenge is officially done and the votes have been tallied, I’ll be making the pattern available on Craftsy, Etsy and Ravelry. Can’t wait to show you more pics of the projects I’m making with it.Pin It
