I just found out today that not only was I nominated but I made it into the "short list" of contenders for the Eco-Friendly Handmade Olympics event!
I am So Stoked!
Kristal is the creator of the RikRakStudio blog & organizer of the Handmade Olympics. She is a lovely Canadian seamstress who shares my enthusiasm for upcycling and repurposing long-forgotten, castaway fabrics. Kristal has an adorable and very popular etsy shop, too! She is incredibly generous with her promotion of other makers and handmade artists and I couldn't be luckier to be one of them.
Sooooo, may I ask for your vote? My Redwood Lovers "Humboldt" Hoot Owl is the lucky little plushie contender.
Voting is easy - Click Here - and you will go directly to "Eco-Friendly Event 3". Once you drop by the RikRakStudios blog, please hang out for a minute and check out the other Handmade Olympic events, there are 8 in total. The Innovative Design group is really exciting!
This is a neat opportunity to introduce a bit of what I've been working on over the past year into this languishing little blog. I envision a colorful dovetail and hope to have some fun with it. I'm even cooking up my own little contest.
Good times. xoxo
