Congratulations to Jake, Danielle,Caleb and Christine! Thank you for your awesome designs… we can’t wait to add them to our Christmas 2011 line-up!
This contest has been an amazing experience on so many fronts. The amount of designers involved, the number of designs submitted, the amount of support for each entry… each of these areas were so inspiring. The most uplifting part of it all was to see a handful of the artists voting for their fellow contestants’ designs – truly a spirit of encouragement and mutual support. We praise God for these positive outcomes!!
Unfortunately, we did have accusations of cheating arise toward the end of the contest. Over the past few days, we have taken the time to do our due diligence around those accusations, and we can say with a clean conscience that we did our best to investigate the matter. In the end, we weren’t able to substantiate the claims, so the votes remained (less one who withdrew voluntarily prior to the end of the contest).
Thank you again for your participation… we are so grateful for your support!
