Welcome to Stone Accents Studios!!!! By tomorrow night your status will be updated and your inboxes will be filled with paperwork, paperwork, paperwork.... luckily all of it digital.

I also want to offer a HUGE congratulations to every single Designer who participated. It takes a lot of bravery to put yourself out there, and you all DID IT! I have enjoyed getting to know you, your designs and your personalities. It has been just, well, fun, LOL. I'm going to miss all the hoopla and I'm sad to see it all end.

Lots of smooches,

I finally had to leave work because I couldn't stand the wait, but of course the second I walked in the door, I turned my computer on. I am stunned! Happily stunned, but stunned nonetheless!

Congratulations to Brenda and Veelena -- but also to everyone else who participated. I would NOT have wanted to vote in the last round; I thought all the kits were fantastic and everyone really showed what great, creative designers you are. Best of luck to all of us wherever the road leads next...

09-30-2009, 05:53 PM
Congratulations, ladies! Woohoo! So exciting:) But so sad the month is now over... what a fun time and such talent! Can't wait to see what you all create... :)

09-30-2009, 05:55 PM
I wanted to say this earlier, but couldnt think of what to write. I really enjoyed designing side by side with everyone that was in the contest. Everyone has their own unique way of design, and I enjoyed seeing all of the kits. I know that it was hard for me to put myself out there to be judged, and I'm sure alot of others were just as nervous. I wish we all could have made it to the final three.
