....................

what our judge had to say about the nominations:
"Everyday it gets more difficult to cut through the clutter of stuff that populates our world. Most people generally seem to think that means you need to go crazy to stand out from the crowd but I've always believed restraint should be a main differentiating factor. Aim to create things that are beautiful and useful in their own subtle ways. And I still believe form should follow function. My selections may or may not totally  fall in line with my beliefs but they do all carry one or more of these qualities. "

................

congratulations to the following & please cast your vote for  
your favourite handmade goodie with an innovative design.
