Hello! It's been a summer since I wrote a post. I had a really busy summer, so I'm glad I took a break, but also glad to be back. Thanks for sticking with me. With that, I have crazy big news.

So awhile back, I entered a contest on Daily Candy called the Start Small, Go Big contest.
I entered it with Amelia in mind. I have all these designs in my mind that I'd like to create myself, so
that was the focus of my entry, to add my own brand into the store.
Well fast forward a few weeks/months (I can't really judge time anymore because it flies by so fast)
and I get a call last week from the sweet folks at Daily Candy telling me that I am one of the 12 finalist overall and only one of three in the home section. You have to understand my shock. I haven't won anything since the 2nd grade when I won an Atari, in a raffle. Although, in 1983, that was better than gold. I'm not complaining.  Well, I was at work at the time, so I threw the "Be Back in 5 Minutes" sign on the door and spent the next 4 1/2 minutes jumping up and down with excitement.

Here's where I need your help. To win now, it all comes down to votes. From now until September 16th, you can vote for me once a day, here. Please vote as much as you can and if you wouldn't mind asking your friends to vote as well, I would very, very much appreciate it.

If you tweet it, please @dailycandy and throw in the #ssgb.
