Well, it took a long while to decide (because there were so many fantastic entries) but we got it narrowed down to 18 lucky finalists!!!!! And, here they are (you can click the image to make it larger):
If your design was recently favorited by me, then you are an instant finalist! You can view them all here, as well (the entire first page of my favorites as of 10/02/08). Congratulations to all the finalists! You have made it super-difficult to decide!
Now, there is good news and there is bad news…
First, the GOOD news…
You all have made it so difficult on us! Geesh! We will be purchasing more than one design!!!! That means that there will be multiple winners!!! All winning designs will receive the same prizes as scheduled in the first announcement. The prizes are:
- I will purchase your design on a t-shirt and Greg will model your t-shirt for a photo shoot that will be uploaded and promoted in the Buyer’s Booth and in a special journal entry by yours truly.
- The winning designers will be interviewed for said journal entry and featured alongside their winning design.
- The winning designs will also be featured in The Amazing Little Pieces of Awesomeness Gallery (formerly the B.Christopher Designs Virtual Gallery) and in my Monthly Addictions Showcase for October 2008.
We will be announcing the winners tomorrow, October 3, 2008.
And now, the Bad News…
There are two crucial pieces of bad news. The first is that we will not be revealing just how many winners will be chosen until tomorrow. So, that number is being kept under wraps. It will definitely be more than one, though.
The other piece of bad news is that, because we will be selecting more than one winner, we will be purchasing the entire lot of winning designs on Sunday, October 5th (two days after the date we had originally intended to purchase the winning design). We are sure two days is a small price to pay for multiple winners. :)
Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES & ALL THE GREAT DESIGNS! YOU ALL WENT WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND AND HAVE MADE THIS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!!! MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!!!!

p.s. Sorry for placing part of the above all in caps but I am so thrilled that I wanted to express it in a giant way. tee-hee. ;P
p.p.s. I am submitting this to all the same groups that approved the first journal, as an update. My many thanks to all the wonderful hosts who have allowed us to add this journal to your outstanding groups!!!! :)
