Months of torture, waiting for the results of the holiday challenge that wrapped up in June, is just the normal way of life for all the Minted designers. Throughout the summer, we find out if we have any designs that will be sold, but we don't have any idea what exactly it is that we won. With the prizes ranging from $150 to $7,000 - there's a potential for some exciting news... Well, this week, the blog posts from Minted started rolling in, with them announcing the top 21-40, the top 11-20 and then yesterday the top 10. I was so excited/giddy/proud/honored to see that my design, Ombre, sneaked into the top 10, coming in at 10th place out of 2,600 entries!
If there's anything consistent about Minted, it's that there is no consistency at all. You never know how your designs will stack up to the competition. Because there are so many amazing designs, it comes down to teeny tiny points, but it makes surprise wins that much sweeter.
Keep an eye out for the 2012 Minted Holiday Collection to launch any day! Happy weekend!
