snap, crackle, poppies.

hey weekenders, just a quick note to say that i have been nominated for the poppies - a brand new online awards (and consciousness raising) thingy launched by the good folks over at poppytalk blog. i was even nominated in two categories, accessories and artist's blog!

my friend stephanie did raise some gentle yet valid concerns about competition in the craft community. in fairness to the poppytalk crew, i will share this quote from the notification email i was sent: "it's not intended to be a competition as much as to bring more awareness to the handmade community." i have to say, i have not felt the thrust of handmade blood-lust yet.

for my part, awareness growth has been the great boon of this initiative. i have seen a bunch of new traffic to my sites and (more importantly) have been overwhelmed going through the links in each category. there are lots of friends in the mix (indeed too many to mention), and i highly recommend a jog through the categories that most interest you - or all of them!

and if you want to vote for me, you can do so here and here.
