i made the finals!!

I am soooooooo super excited that my entry made the finals of the decor8 and Amy Butler Mood Board Competition!!

I entered a competition via one of my favourite american design blogs decor8 and out of 118 entries - I'm a finalist!!

We had to create a 'mood board' inspired by Amy Butler fabrics, I decided to only use NZ designed products and named the board "i heart nz"... and I am completely stoked to be in the top 23...
details clockwise from top left.. Tio Table by Conscious Design or see Butterfly Net for info, Sugarloop Prints, David Trubridge Kaura Hanging Light, Esther Diamond Cushion and Bed Linen, Michael Parekowhai Floral Photograph, Buttons by 'badge o saurus' at www.toggle.co.nz and 'kiwialan' at www.felt.co.nz

The winners are decided by public voting, so, if you want to vote it's pretty straight forward... to see my entry amongst all the others all you need to do is click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page (my entry is at the bottom) (feel free to click the "clearly a winner" button!) There are some pretty amazing entries, so make sure you check them out... It has been nice to showcase some (would of liked to have used more : ) of the amazing design that is coming out of NZ... old and new... - they are all credited with links to websites etc.. I think they will be loaded with all the links at decor8 tomorrow..

FYI: the Grand Prize is a prize pack valued at approximately $300 that will include a signed copy of Amy's book Midwest Modern, 1 Birdie Sling in her Midwest Modern Fabric, 1 Sew It Kit, 2 Card Kits, and 10 of her most recent patterns. and Runner ups: 5 runner ups will receive one of 5 bags created by Amy's studio.
