New Voting Cut Off – Thursday at 3pm

Hi Moms,

WOW, this has been so exciting!  You are all getting so many votes – my goodness!  :-)  We have already had over 18,000 visits to our blog – so thrilling!  Thank you ALL for your support and enthusiasm!  This has really been super fun for all of us!

Because of the fabulous activity, we feel it would be best to cut off the voting a day early.  As you can imagine, we are getting bogged down counting all these votes!  AND you all are so much smarter than we are – we thought you would vote in two places but you have managed to find at least seven different places to type in your vote!  Well done!  HAHA!   This has also made counting the votes more challenging and time consuming.  What a great problem to have though!  :-)
I hope no one minds, but, we would like to cut off the voting tomorrow (THURSDAY) at 3pm.  This should give you enough time to get any last minute votes in and give us plenty of time to count all the entries.  Thank you so much for your understanding and support for our decision.

Kids Model Search – VOTE HERE!

We loved seeing so many new, cute faces last week at our model search at the studio. Our friends at the buti bag co. are in need of marketing materials for their new product, belle bottoms, and we had some of the most adorable little ones come out to get photographed for their chance to be in a future photo shoot for the product that adds an element of fun to your pant cuffs.

Now on to the good stuff! We want your vote on who you’d like to see used on the product’s marketing material. But before we get there, we’ve got a couple of rules:

  • The images are all below. To vote, simply comment on the photo of your choice (i.e. “I vote for this image”).
  • One vote per person on the blog, and one vote per person on our Facebook page.
  • To vote on our Facebook page, simply write on our wall “I vote for #YOUR SELECTION HERE” (i.e. “I vote for #75″). Please note – This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook
  • There will be 3 winners and 2 runners up chosen (in the case that one of the winners can not make the session for the product).
  • The management committee has final say in the winners and runners up to ensure that diversity (including age, sex and ethnicity) is met and that the product is accurately represented; for instance, we cannot have a product that showcases three two-year-old girls together since the product is for both sexes and multiple ages).
  • Voting will close on Friday April 27 at noon. The winner will be chosen by 5 p.m. of the same date and the photo shoot will take place on Sat. May 12 at 8 a.m.

And without further adieu … (drum roll, please) … here are the photos you have been waiting for!
