The end is upon us.
The Retro Pillow Challenge is now officially over. Keren and I have had a blast getting know all of the participants and seeing each and every one of you meet the challenge head-on! This challenge allowed us to make meaningful connections with fellow crafters from all over the world. We were able to share a common experience with lovely people whom we now consider friends. Thank you! Thank you for giving us a chance--we warned you from the beginning that we were making it up as we went along! Thank you for amazing us every day! Thank you for sharing your stories, for teaching us something new, for being so darn nice, for offering us help, for encouraging us and each other, for working so hard, for staying up too late and working double-time to get your pillows done in time, and for everything else you did to make this such a rewarding and worthwhile experience for us all!!!!!
Before we reveal the results of the poll, (don't scroll ahead!) Keren and I would like to say how impressed we are with all the pillows. All of us were given the exact same problem, but the solutions couldn't be more different and wonderful. You see, that was the goal of our challenge, to inspire and be inspired. I can't speak for everyone, but I sure as heck was inspired! OK, OK, you've be subjected to enough of my ramblings! I bet you're very curious about who captured the most votes in our pillow poll.
Let's take one last look at all those gorgeous pillows!
PILLOW POLL RESULTS
There were just over 500 votes cast. A significant number, I know!
The clear winner, with nearly a 3rd of the total votes, is Adrianne's Marilyn Monroe pillow!
In second place is Pam's Flower Power pillow!
And tied at third place are Becky's and Kadie's pillows!
As promised, here are your super snazzy buttons. Display them with pride!
I hope you'll all join Keren and I
on our next enterprise:
