Contests Contests and one more contest

This year I was determined to submit a dress to the Dare to Design contest on Shabby Apple's blog.

I found out this morning it was selected for the top 15!!!! I was so excited! If you would like to vote for me (oh please please please) you can click HERE, I am number 12.
I was also selected to compete in "crafting with the stars over at Sew Dang Cute.
I was pared up with Jen from Tatertots and Jello which I am thrilled about. Our first challenge was due today:
I am kinda nervous about this competition because my "craft" supply is fairly limited ha! But we'll see how it goes. FINALLY oh my goodness I am have been DROOLING over these bikes for about a year now... remember I did a post WAY back when about them?
Madsen Cycles Cargo Bikes
Well they are doing a give away and maybe by some MIRACLE I might win one ha! I could totally see myself biking down the horrible streets of Dili in one of these bad boys :) You can click to the pic and it will take you to their site if you want to enter yourself. My friend Jenny who lives in Beijing has her own tuk tuk that fits 2 car seats and this is the only thing that can come close to that! So lots going on at the Crawford abode crafty wise :)

k...totally voted for you. What's with most only submitting a sketch? It is ONE thing to design or sketch a cute dress, it is a whole 'nother thing to actually make one! They should have said that you also had to actually make it. You da bomb.

I agree with Cherylyn! What's up with the sketches? I voted! I liked that the link wasn't working so we could see the votes. :-)
