Special thank yous to everyone at the Studio for putting this thing on -- I've learned a TON.

Since there's been so much talk of baking and baked goods exchanging going on in the forums during the contest, I thought I'd go with a theme to record and celebrate all those domestic moments in the kitchen. When I was growing up, my friend Dusty's grammie lived a few houses down, and her kitchen always smelled like cookies. It was an awesome early-50's kitchen of the future (despite being the mid '70's), with yellow and blue flower printed curtains and always a mason jar full of daisies. This kit was inspired by Dusty's grammie.

Kit includes:
* a button, colored 8 ways (sorry Toiny. LOL)
* a clip, also colored in all the palette colors
* 3 aprons (one full, two hostess)
* 3 mixing bowls in nesting sizes
* one curled ribbon
* one shelf with bunting liner
* one handmade button frame
* daisies to use either alone or in a jar
* a scalloped plastic circle frame
* 5 jello molds
* a cast iron skillet
* a polka dot ribbon
* 1950's era fridge and stove
* transparent mason jar
* scalloped pink journal card
* New! Improved! word art
* pink polka-dot ribbon wrap
* "From the Kitchen Of" recipe card (printable, too)
* two kinds of stars cut from vintage recipe cards
* a flatware frame
* yellow scrolly frame
* Kitchen-Aide stand mixer
* hand-drawn string bow
* hanging hand towel with applique chicken
* the window withe the yellow happy curtains
* wooden spoon

There's also a full litho alphabet (capitals), and fourteen coordinating papers (10 patterned and 4 semi-solids, mostly in element patterns or in 1950's wallpaper). I think I stuck in a quick page in the tou/preview folder, too.

**edit 10/01**
Thank you EVERYONE for the kind comments and your support through this competition!!! I love you guys.

Hehe, I'm the first to see this, I just refreshed, love it! You have a very unique style - do you draw these things all yourself? And if so, do you have a bamboo already? Cuz if you do draw 'em, and if you don't have a bamboo, I sure hope you win, cuz it'll be a LOT easier WITH one, right?

I love this! I photograph a lot of my kitchen creations and I HAVE a 50s kitchen of the future, push button stove with electric coils and everything! I refer to myself as "Donna Reed" since as a student, I don't work and have dinner reasy for my husband when he gets home. I can see some fun layouts with this kit!

Thanks and GOOD LUCK!

OMGoodness, this is just sooo stinkin' cute!!! Oh, how I wish I had some pics of us in the kitchen... except, uh... I'm not at all "at home" in the kitchen! LOL! Oh... I'm going to have to go next door and snap some pics of hubby's grammy cooking with her apron on!!! She's usually got flour smudged across her cheek, too! hehehe...

Thank you, folks!

Your questions, answered:

@jen - I do draw everything myself, and I've got one of the professional Wacoms. (I'm a Creative Director/Marketing Director for starmakerexpress by day, and a lot of what I do ends up being professional illustration. :>) Sometimes I draw it on paper and scan it into Illustrator to clean it up, and sometimes I just draw directly into Photoshop/Illustrator (depending on the illustration) with the tablet, but it definitely comes in handy!

@nani - I am so. incredibly. jealous of your KITCHEN of the FUTURE! I have this *thing* with vintage kitchen stuff. My poor husband has to deal with me squealing in decibel levels only dogs can hear whenever we find vintage pyrex and such. And the day I found the fifties-era cake saver in pink copper? Thought my head would explode with glee. I totally should have drawn THAT.

@kimber -- I totally want to see those pictures!

@camperchow - Thank you! I'm definitely feeling shades better than prechewed gum this morning, thank goodness.

@jilly - Woman, that's your inner Donna Reed fighting to get out. Try baking some of that 5 minutes-a-day bread and we'll have to pry you away from the oven with a crowbar. Trust me here.

@SK - Thank you! I'm only here because of you and your awesome class.

@allergy_mom - I'm blushing. Seriously. Thank you. Bottom of my heart.

@kim - Thank you! I want it to be *my* kitchen. LOL!

Peony

You rock. Totally amazing. What a talent you are. I am so glad you recovered enough from your oral surgery to get this submitted. I love it and you as well, even though you got this submitted before I finished.

Super awesome kit, love all the 50s stuff and think I probably had most of these things and somehow, someway they weren't kept.
Tons of luck in the final.
