Title: My turn to beg for votes!
Post by: Larissa on June 23, 2012, 12:58:41 AM
Now Fabric of my Mind has made it into the Great Finds contest!!!  It's my .pdf pattern & tutorial for the busy book I made my nephew.  Remember that one?

Anyway, please vote for me here:  http://madeformebyoaklie.com/greatfinds.html

This was one of the pages for the busy book:

Remember, you're not looking for Reef Botanicals - you're looking for Fabric of my Mind!

Voted!  can you  vote more than once?
Title: Re: My turn to beg for votes!
Post by: Larissa on June 23, 2012, 02:18:46 AM
I think maybe from different computers, but that's it.  I tried to do it from different browsers when it was other HAF members, but it didn't seem to work.

Oh, how exciting!!!!  I voted, and you're in the lead!  I also tweeted (for what that's worth), but I'm linking your info to my Etsy team.

Good luck!!!!  How fun!!!

Voted for you!  There appears to also be another HAF member in the running if Crochet Hooked is the same one as sells here.

Seems like it would be more equitable if the collection was more homogenous.  Like in contest with similar items, not just similar colors.  But whateva! LOL

Well you can thank me because I submitted this for the contest. ;D
It was a submit one for yourself and one for a friend. I did not do one for myself since I've been in for several weeks. I'm happy she chose it!
I did vote and I see Cari is in too. I'll vote from home for her. We have such a great bunch of talent here. I'd like to see more of us in this and not just Etsy people.

Larissa, you'll get a message from Anne about being the winner.

Did you know that it was me that submitted this entry for the challenge? ;)

Post by: Larissa on June 29, 2012, 10:55:58 AM
Teresa, you said earlier in this thread, I think, that you submitted it.  I love you forever!

And I got the confirmation email.  SO PSYCHED!

Ooops! I went and looked and I did.  :-[ I'm happy you won though!
I submitted someone else's item this week, so we'll see what happens. I'd really like to see more shops here enter their stuff. Good advertising for their shops and the site in general.
Title: Re: My turn to beg for votes!
Post by: Larissa on June 29, 2012, 12:02:43 PM
I win a 20% discount to a shop... but more importantly, advertising for FOM on the gift suggestions site (and FOM needs attention!) And also a banner set.  The rules said "or anything of equal value," so I'm actually hoping for a collage.
