The Knitimals and I need your vote!

In the midst of award season and with the growing anticipation of the Olympics, acknowledgement and praise is in the air, and the Handmade Community (never to be outdone) is finding more ways to join in on the fun!

Early in the year, the fabulous website PoppyTalk announced a new (hopefully annual) competition called "The Poppies". They describe The Poppies as "a virtual awards ceremony of sorts celebrating the Handmade Community!"

Nominations were made in several categories and I'm happy to announce that the second category up for voting is "CRAFTERS (Embroidery/Crochet/Knitting/Quilting) Artist/Designer/Shop)" and i have been nominated for my Knitimals!

Anyone can vote, and everyone is allowed one vote per category, per computer, per day, so please take a minute to vote each day, if you can. You don't have to register or sign up for anything--- its very easy. The voting ends on January 26th at 11:59 pm.

You can vote here! Please bookmark the page and visit it every day.

The prizes include all sorts of press & praise and FREE advertising on a very heavily trafficked blog. Plus bragging rights.
Please pass this along to anyone you know who supports the arts or has ever been affected by my work.

If I win, we'll be celebrating with a 40% off coupon code-- so when you vote, post a comment here and let's get some people in those virtual voting booths!

I'd gone to the Poppies voting page via another blog i regularly read, all ready to vote for her. Scrolling down the list of nominees i squealed when i saw you there. Needless to say i changed my vote. ;-)
