Martha Stewart's American Made Awards


I just got some amazing news! I'm a FINALIST in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards! From the website, "American Made spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade." Maker? Check! Local? Check! Handmade? Check! Yes I love all three of these things and I'm so loving Martha for celebrating them. 


Here's a little confession. In order to even be up for this award, you have to nominate yourself. I felt weird doing that. I had to come to terms with describing myself in the third person, answering lots of questions about why I do what I do and how I'm celebrating the maker within. Is that weird? I guess it all boils down to that weird thing about talking about yourself and tooting your own horn! Why is it so hard for us to do that? Well, I thought it was worth it and went ahead and filled out the form and sent in my nomination. Lo and behold, a few days ago I got an email that I had been selected as a Finalist! 
Out of all the Nominees, Finalists are chosen from several categories (Crafts, Design, Food, Style) and from the Finalists, Award Winners are chosen. 






So now I'm up for voting. You can vote up to 6 times a day from now until October 13, 2014. After that it is out of our hands and into the judges.



Do you feel I'm worthy? Do you think I represent the qualities of an American Maker? I'd love your vote! Click on the images above and cast your vote 6 times a day until the deadline. Share this on Facebook! Tweet it! Email your entire address book! (OK maybe not...)
Me and Martha go way back you know, and I'd love to get back in touch...


Here's when I gave her her very own mini-Martha!
