Papercraft Blog of the Year Voting closes soon.

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Papercraft Blog of the Year Voting closes soon.

Oh my, where have the last couple of months gone? It feels like only yesterday that I got word I’d been shortlisted for this award, but all of a sudden I’ve realised that the voting closes in just a few days.

So if you don’t know what this is, the British Craft Awards are a bit like the Oscars for the crafting world, with many different crafting disciplines represented (knitting, quilting, papercraft etc), each with their own categories. And I’m thrilled that for the 2nd year I’ve been shortlisted as Papercraft Blog of the Year. I was stunned to win it last year and figured it must be some sort of accident that I’d been included when I was in a category with lots of ‘offical’ branded blogs. But nope, I’m utterly delighted to have been shortlisted again!

I know that so many of you, from all over the World, have voted, and I’m totally blown away. And I’m tickled to hear that many of you have voted from as many different email accounts as possible! I love having you all in my ‘corner’ so to speak!

So I’m putting out a last shout out to see if I can beg a few more votes. It closes on December 17th, Sunday, so if you haven’t yet voted, or want to vote again, I’d love it very much.

I was chatting to Mum about it recently and she said that in all the categories that had ‘other’ as an option, she put me in!!! She’s such a star and my biggest cheerleader!!

So with humble thanks, and much much love, you can vote HERE under Papercraft. And keep your fingers crossed, we will find out in February!!!
