Awards Announcement

Hi all before I make the award announcement in just a bit I wanted to thank several people before things got wild and crazy.

First off--I got the idea to do something a bit different for the winners this year. I approached reallycorking and kath_ballantyne to do some original artwork for the winner banners. They graciously agreed and the artwork is just beautiful. I so appreciate their hard work getting these done and I can not thank them enough. The awards are even more special this year because of them. Be sure to leave them a note letting them know how beautiful the artwork is!

Second-Thank you to simons_flower and oncelikeshari for checking journals and validating votes. Their help was invaluable and it made my job so much easier in validating everything.

And finally last but not least rickey_a who made all the winner banners. She devoted loads of time to this project and a great deal of creativity. She put up with my inability to be online and available as much as I would have liked to have been. Be sure to comment and let her know what a great job she did.

As I said I will be announcing the winners probably sometime between 830 and 9 pm EST. I will be sending out letters to the authors and artists. Those of you who do win an award if you could please hold off posting your banners until the actual winner announcement goes up I would appreciate it!

Thanks to everyone who nominated and voted!

Update on Awards

First I want to apologize. I know quite a few people are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting on the announcements. I moved quite suddenly over the weekend--only a week after I signed my lease. I have been swamped under with trying to get my kids and I unpacked so everything is liveable.

I will be sending out the results to my volunteers tonight to verify journals and votes. I will also be doing that myself tonight and tomorrow. Please be patient and give me a bit more time to get everything done.

I will announce the awards Friday evening and hopefully you'll be able to hold on until then. If you emailed me about the status of the awards and I haven't responded yet it is because I didn't have computer access to anything until late yesterday. I will try to answer those emails over the course of this evening and tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this extremely stressful time for me.

Voting Closed and an Update


Voting closed right on time on the 24th! However,I am moving over the weekend to a new apartment and I will not have internet access until Monday evening at home.

I will be announcing the winners no later than the 3rd of March. I apologize for the delay but it's going to be an insane weekend for me.

Polls are going to go up later today I was unable to get to them over the weekend due to totally unrelated drama in real life.

Been trapped at home with no power since Weds but I have got the artist letters out now.
