boutique challenge auctions AND brownie-goose

ladies - i have been DYING to tell you all about this but i was sworn to secrecy and although i wanted to bust at some times, i didn't. but now, i get to let the cat out of the bag!

i was COMPLETELY honored to be contacted by one of the girls at boutique challenge auctions. if you aren't familiar with this group of ladies - i must say do yourself a favor and check them out (here is the facebook page). this is a group of insanely talented ladies who are given a challenge and a deadline to come up with designs in the sewing world. for instance, they may be given a challenge of rainbows and they must come up with a design around rainbows, or they may be given a specific designer and challenged to mix some of the designer's patterns, etc. needless to say, these girls know what they are doing when it comes to the sewing/design world. at the end, an auction is held that offers these creations at less than retail price. i mean, can you even stand the fun!!??

well, the brownie-goose challenge just hit the blog, and i must say...i am FLOORED. i am completely amazed and humbled at the creativity of these designs. i mean, holy macaroni - some of these designs are out of this world! this is the kind of thing that makes me all warm fuzzy and giddy at the same time. sewing is RAD people, and it makes you feel good! congrats to all of the ladies that entered, your creativity is out of this world!

so, as the featured designer i am supposed to pick just 1 design that "wins" from the designer side. how in the hiccups am i supposed to do that!!!??

that my geese, is where i need your help! head over to the boutique challenge blog and cast the vote for your fave design. this also enters you in the chance to win a gift certificate to BCA. once you do that, come back here and comment and tell me your fave! let me know before friday at noon (EST) so i can have the chance to tally all the votes up and make a decision. :)

with that said - i am actually leaving town early in the morning. byron and i have a kid's free wedding weekend at the grand in point clear (one of my fave places). due to spotty cellular service, i have the shop shut down until i get back in town. but, i will be checking in for this challenge to see who your fave is!

thanks again ladies, go VOTE and have a great weekend!!
