Voting begins!


A great, big LilyPad thank you to all of you who participated in our show this year! Our numbers may have been fewer than last year, but we have some great entries, and I hope y'all will spread the word so we can have even more fun next year!

Voting starts today -- here is how we do it:

I hope by now you have visited all of the entries that you can, and left them some comment kudos on their pet or pet-themed quilt. You can "like" the entries if you want to, so that you can remember them when you come back by the LilyPad.

We'll have three Viewers' Choice winners, and then after that, the random drawings!! Huzzah! So, leave one comment (on this blog post) that says which cute and cuddly entry is your choice to win these three categories:

                              1. Dog on quilt
                              2. Cat on quilt
                              3. Pet-themed quilt

(In past years, we have had "other animal" winners, such as hedgehogs, ducklings, and horses, but this year we just have pups and kitties!)

Now, you can also leave other separate comments to increase your chances of winning! Listen up, pardner!

First, if you "advertised" our show in some way (blog post, Facebook, etc.) leave a comment to tell me. (You will get three extra entries in our drawing!)
Next, if you made mats and quilted pads for shelter animals, leave a comment for that. (You get five extra entries in our drawing!)
Did you visit all the entries and leave a comment where you could? (Leave a comment!)
Are you a follower here at the LilyPad? (Not mandatory, but if you are, leave a comment!)

Easy peasy!
We'll leave the voting open for a week, OK? And it's absolutely OK to tell your buddies to come by and leave comments to vote for you!

After voting is closed, we'll tally the results and announce our winners!  (Give us time, now, it's difficult for Padsworth to keep up -- hard to hold that pencil with his froggie feet!)

Now let the voting begin!!

I am so happy to hear from you! I try to respond to all comments, but lately blogger has made that difficult! If you do not receive a reply, it may be because your profile is set on "no-reply". Edit your profile, and click "show my email address" and we'll be able to talk!
Please do not leave links to un-related blogs or products. That is not good etiquette and they will be deleted! :)
