win some monday candy!


we're still in the middle of craziness at work (it involves, among other things, me standing on top of a bar deftly teetering around cocktails) but i had to jump in here and shout about something.  there's a new kid in town, kollabora, and as you can tell by the candied collage above, she's a beautiful child.  i'm in love with her.  at the moment you can hop over to the site and request an invite... which i suggest you do.  right now.  i'll wait.
edit: you don't need access to the site to win!  they're uploading new members as fast as they can.  all you need to enter the contest is a twitter or instagram account, and a photo of handmade item.  you've got some of those, yes?

okay, good.  isn't the front page gorgeous?  did you scroll down and see the yummy projects?  now!  to whet your appetites before the main course, kollabora is hosting their first contest.  over the past week, they've been giving away all those beautiful hors d'ouevres you see pictured above.  would that i could have come down off the bar to mention it sooner, but you still have time to win. today's prize is the colette patterns crepe dress kit, which comes with all the goodies you need to make your frock (including some gorgeous heavy fushcia sateen fabric from mood). 

all you have to do to win is upload a picture of your sweet self holding, wearing, or using something you made to twitter or instagram.  make sure you include the hashtag  #kollabora  so they can see your entry.  how easy is that? no stunt sewing necessary, just have a bellini, choose something pretty from your handmade arsenal and upload!*  you can check out the past winners on kollabora's blog.  i want the neon earrings.

*i realize most people do not work the odd hours i do.  if your boss frowns upon alcohol at 9am, you can always upload after 5, with, say, a martini.  you have until midnight to win, after all.

  3. Oh what a great thing! And I have all afternoon at work to decide what to snap. Think they'd accept baking? If we are what we make then I'm turning into a mocha cookie!
