Back in January, I had an opportunity to go to a very prestigious craft blogging event put on by Prime Publishing at the winter CHA, and to network with 25 major companies that were looking for new bloggers. (Um, that wasn't a secret, it actually was an awesome big deal.)
As part of the event, we got 4 bags of swag and were challenged to make something awesome so that they could have a blogger competition!
Here's what I made:
I called it the Co-Worker of the Bride Purse, but in the contest they've thoughtfully edited and renamed it for me. It's now Quirky Crochet Handbag.
The voting for the contest is now ON!!! We've got one week to promote ourselves and get some votes.
The good news is that the full instructions on how to make the bag are right there on the site too (FREE PATTERN! YAY!!!!). So go, check it out, and vote for me Dynamo Nation!!!
(Um, in the spirit of fairness, they are cycling the pictures of the projects in the contest, so if you don't see mine, hit refresh until it cycles back around)
First place is $1000, which would make your Dearest Friend Jaime oh so happy! (Plus it would go a long way towards funding some awesome giveaways around here... hint, hint!!!)
Love, love, love to you all. GO VOTE ALREADY!!!!
