"Best of Craftster 2011" Winner!

I just found out that one of my embroidery designs -- "Chic Chandeliers" -- was a Craftster's "Best of Craftster 2011" winner in their Machine Embroidery category!! How exciting!! These little "gems" are machine embroidered on stiffened craft felt and make great home or party decorations. Decked out in beads and crystals, they will brighten up any girl's room, bath or porch. They make sparkly little sun catchers when hung by a window. What a great bridal shower decoration or gift!! Thanks Craftster, for the nod!!

Craftster is an online community where people share hip, off-beat, crafty diy (do it yourself) projects. The term "Craftster" means "crafty hipster" and is also meant to be an homage to the pioneer peer-to-peer sites Napster and Friendster. Currently, there are over 265,000 members sharing crafty goodness every day.

Craftster was started in August 2003 and has since grown to a readership of over 1,000,000 readers per month. It has been written up in numerous publications including Time Magazine, the New York Times and the London Guardian.

Craftster is the largest online community for what is now commonly known as "indie crafts." ("Indie" stands for independent as in indie music, indie art, indie film, etc.) Craftster is regarded by many as one of the cornerstones of the recent renaissance in crafting known as the "indie craft movement."

Thanks, Craftster!!!
