P.S. I hit 900 followers! I can't believe it. I LOVE YOU.


  1. wow...what wonderful winners! there's real talent out there in the big, wide world, I'd say.

  2. Congratulations, winners!!!! Your portraits are amazing!

  3. I think a great theme is EYES! :-D

  4. Thanks for doing this contest, girl! It was really fun to participate. How about a vintage theme for the next one? pets? nature? OR have everyone share one picture that portrays a dream they have for the future- like motherhood, their dream job, etc. I think it would be a super fun way to get creative...and get to know people! Although, you might have to give us lots of time for that one. ;)
