Several months ago, I stumbled across Spoonflower's website. Its a custom fabric printing shop. That's neat enough on its own, however, they also hold lots of contests for new designs, patterns, etc. I had thrown my hat in the ring, and came up with a cute little idea for their Fat Quarter Puppet contest.
After voting was over, they announced the winner and showed the top 10. I wasn't among them, which I actually wasn't that disappointed about since it was only my first time ever trying to do fabric/pattern design.
Today I just happened to be looking through their blog and noticed that you can see what place each entry came in for the contests. I checked out the contest I had entered and I was 20th out of 46! I honestly didn't expect to be that high up in the rankings. Weee! Perhaps I will try to participate in some of their future contests when I can find the time.
There is some crafty news coming, but I'm holding off on that until I wrap up a few loose ends. I can hardly contain myself.
