I’m a finalist in the Etsy Handmade Kids Challenge! I’m so happy! Gerard, my “Hug Me! Slug” is is in the toy category. Please, please, please go vote for him (and me!) here. All you need is an Etsy user ID. It’s free and easy to get one. You can vote only once in each category and, by voting, you get a chance to win an Etsy shopping spree. You can read all about the Handmade Kids Challenge and Sweepstakes here.
This is Gerard. He has already found a home, but you can still see his listing here.
The photos on the voting page rearrange themselves, and so you might have to look for him a little on the page. Etsy will be having a guest panel of judges from Boingboing, Cookie, decor8, Martha Stewart Living, Ohdeedoh, Parents and Treehugger. I’m so excited. I have been on Etsy for some time now, hoping to be found amidst the many handmade items by all sorts of artists and craftspeople. Thanks Etsy!
Gerard is happy about it too, or I’m sure he would be. I hope someone will tell him!
I’m still making my dolls. They got dresses, stockings, and shoes today, or some of them did. I’m making progress.
