The Big Button Challenge Results!

I enjoyed watching the votes come in this past week.  So many different projects went in and out of the top three at first, and once the top two were pretty much decided, the next four or five remained in a dead heat for third place.

Penny's Bag

Frankly, I would have had a tough time choosing, so I’m very glad I had you to do the honors for me!  Congratulations to Penny for her fabulous altered bag, which won with 20% of the 376 votes!  I don’t know if you all realized this or not, but Penny has a new Etsy shop, filled with all kinds of interesting upcycled purses, including the winning bag.  If you’ve been eyeing it, now’s your chance…

And now I promised a prize to one of you lucky voters. The winner, chosen at random, gets her choice of any focal button (or set of smaller buttons) available in the shop.

To the rest of you, I give this coupon code worth 10% off anything in the Polka Dot Cottage shop until Midnight Friday:  Simply enter the word BUTTONS in the area of the shopping cart that asks for vouchers.  You are not limited to buying buttons, though!

I went to, and plugged in the number of commenters, and the winner of the button is commenter #12, Julie!

Penny, I’ll be emailing you shortly to find out which type of gift certificate you prefer, and Julie, I’ll be emailing you to find out which button you’d like, and where to send it.

Thank you everyone – participants, voters and comment-makers alike – for playing!  I hope it’s been as enjoyable for you as it has for me.
