Birthday Contest

I would say a 30th birthday calls for some celebration and a contest, don't you? I certainly don't feel thirty. There are so many things in my life I am grateful for right now, I feel really blessed!

THE PRIZE
I've been hoarding these gorgeous skeins of Louet Gems Pearl in Crabapple. It's a really happy pink but not too bright. These will make a gorgeous scarf, shawlette or pair of socks!
HOW TO WIN
Okay, it's simple. I need your opinions! I'm thinking about changing my banner for my Etsy shop and I want to know which one you like best.

Current banner:Possible banner #1

Possible banner #2

Possible banner #3

Just leave a comment and let me know what you think. I will draw a winner on Wednesday, Sept 15th at noon CDT.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Take a moment and remember the 3,000 lives that were lost 9 years ago.

I like #1 as well, its clean and smooth (if that makes sense ;) and fits well with today's aesthetic.

Disentangled said...

Oh! AND happy birthday! :)

Bea said...

Happy Birthday! I like the top banner best.

Yes, the first sample is the best!

Thanks for the reminder for remembering those lost and while we are doing that let's also remember those who are serving in the military...many of whom joined up when this incident happened

Happy birthday Emily! You will see that the 30s are wonderful years because we have so much that we did not have when we turned 20 for instance: family, friends, confidence, financial independance, etc. Enjoy this special day!!!

As for the banner, I really like #1! What a generous contest!

Meredith said...

Happy Birthday! I also like #1, but I swear I didn't look at the other comments before I decided!

Happy Birthday! Another September person as my birthday is in two weeks. After weighing in all three banners, I think number three represents you the best.

Mary said...

I like #3. I think it matches the vibe of your quilts well.

Happy Birthday!

Happy 30th!!!
I'm about to turn 31 in a few months and I promise 30 isn't that bad :)

To be honest, I was drawn immediately to your current banner - I think that is my favorite! But after that, I like #1.

Happy Birthday!!!
If you must change your banner (I like the current one the best), I would choose banner #3. It's bright and cheery and has a DIY feel to it.
