Happy Friday, Everyone!
I know none of you has gotten a minute of rest or a wink of sleep for days, what with the torturous anticipation of finding out who the winners of the contest are!
No doubt you have paced a hole in your carpet!
But fear not! The day has arrived!
Are you ready to see who won?
I just have one quick thing to say, which is that EVERYONE who entered this contest should be very proud of themselves. You all showed up, put in the work, produced GORGEOUS illustrations, followed guidelines, and worked to a deadline – all very important skills to practice when illustrating and/or writing is your profession 🙂 Even if you didn’t make the finals, be assured that your illustrations were greatly enjoyed by many upon many! Seriously! I am not making this up. The contest post with all your links had around 3000 views, which means lots of people were visiting you, even if they didn’t all comment! So we are giving you a round of thunderous applause – clapclapclapclapclap!!!!! – and you should pat yourselves on the back and have an extra slice of chocolate cake – you did good! 🙂
