A winner and another prize!

Howdy all!

Today I have the winner of our 10,000 subscriber comment contest AND a new gorgeous prize to tell you all about!  First up:  our winner.

Congrats Dani!  Please send me an email at with the subject Winner! with your addy and I will get this fabulous box out to you this week!  You are going to have such fun!

And now another prize!  Our November Issue cover prize is provided by the absolutely fabulous Bella Blvd.  They were soooooooo generous gifting FOUR different lines.  Would you like to see?

How do you win?  You submit to one of our November calls.   You can find our calls in each issue.  To make it easier, we link them over in the sidebar, too.  You may submit to as many as you wish, but please use a separate email for each submission.  We need to be able to easily forward them to each writer.

How do we determine the cover winner?  Every item submitted is eligible.  Our editors will sort through the submissions and select any that have a strong cover presence.  What does that mean?  A strong design.  Take a peek at our last 12 covers here.  Those selected will be forwarded to our staff for a vote.  The winner is asked for her item, but not told she is the cover winner until the issue is live on the first of the month.  We love the suspense! 

Some hints?  (1) Make sure you take a great picture or scan.  We need to see it to love it.  (2) Remember the season.  We have a call for Food Glorious Food right now.  Any food has the chance to be published, but Easter Eggs will probably not land you on the November cover.  (3) Keep an eye on your email! (and make sure we are not landing in your spam) It always makes us so sad when a cover gal does not respond and we have to move on to our alternate. 

Would you like to have a cover designed around your creation AND win this fabulous prize from Bella Blvd?  Submissions are due by the last day of the month.  Go check out that list!
