JUDGES
I'm so excited about the lineup of judges. These are all very amazing ladies, who have had a great impact on me personally, as well as in the blogging community. Collectively, they will be choosing the Top 10. Without further adieu... I invite you to click on their pictures and visit these wonderful ladies!






BUTTONS
Ok, so I'm kind of obsessed with these buttons! They were created by my crazy talented friend Jamie, from The Letter 4 blog. Not only did she design them inspired by the show's logo, but she also hand drew the sewing machine graphic. She offers blog design templates for purchase on her blog. She's so insanely amazing!!! (In case you didn't know, she designed my blog too).
There's a button for everyone! If you enter the competition, be sure to post a button somewhere on your blog's sidebar! Even if you're not going to enter, you can still grab a "Participating Button" if you plan to follow along and vote for your favorites.














So feel free to grab one of these beautiful buttons to add to your blog and spread the word!
See you next week for the unveiling of the Rules and Weekly Challenges!

ps- Throughout the next few months, you can click on the Sew-vivor button on my sidebar for the latest Sew-vivor post :)

Amy said...

I'm a big survivor fan and I'd love to enter! I'm not sure if I'll do well since there are so many original and talented women out there. I'm not very original but I sure can copy something I saw somewhere. I can't wait to hear more about it so I can decide if I'm brave enough to enter!

i am sew not very talented, and mostly self-taut, button maybe i could seam like a plane pro and not quilt at the last moment. i don't have tv, sew i don't follow those kinds of threads, but i hear the survivor shows do use the occasional geeky stooge like me :)) ---- for edgy contrast!

Heather at Dragonfly Designs said...

Michelle {Daydream Believers} said...

Looks like fun if you're a sewer. However, I don't see anything here about WIWW, which is the link by which I found you.
