Canvassing for votes again so soon makes me feel like a shameless politician, and, as I’m knee deep into season 5 of The Wire, I’m feeling even more distaste for that breed of human being than I usually do, but nonetheless, here I go again, in full oratory flow:
Dear readers, I just want to thank you for coming here today. I’m so humbled and even honoured to tell you today that Skinny laMinx has been nominated in the Favourite Handmade Textiles category of the Poppytalk annual awards.
My colleagues who make up the competition are an impressive bunch, including Flowerpress, Ink & Spindle, Summersville and Dottie Angel, so I can understand if you’re wondering exactly where to make your mark today. But I say now is the time. It’s time to take action. To deal with any sense of vacillation, confusion and hesitation with decisiveness and with courage. Declare war on over-thinking your decision, dear readers, and boldly make a swift click of your mouse next to the Skinny laMinx button. Do it now. Yes you can!
Click here to vote (for me) before 29 January. It’s the right thing to do.
