Design Junkies Journal — March 25, 2010
Greetings, fellow Design Junkies! Kathy here. Spring is an instinctive time for home design & decorating motivation. Need more inspiration? Jump into the fun Challenges, expert advice, projects & stories you'll find at HomeWorkshop.com.
Astounding! That was your response to our Imageglow Design Challenge. We asked you to create new artwork for a fashionable, unique candle. Artists and designers from 42 countries and 21 U.S. states submitted 385 designs! Want to enjoy the diversity of worldwide art and pattern? Put your feet up and browse the entries.
Our expert judges chose the top three finalists. Now it's up to you and your friends to cast your votes for the winner--whose candle design will be marketed at retail--and who'll earn a designer's royalty! Hurry and vote before the deadline this Sunday, March 28 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.
And keep your right brains on! Another design Challenge launches this Wednesday, March 31. So fantabulous I can hardly contain my excitement. Jump to the home page Wednesday and check it out.
You can count on expert advice, project ideas and up-to-date trends from our working-designer Contributors, each well-versed in their area of home design and decorating. This month, two fantastic new Contributors joined us at HomeWorkshop.com:
