We had such a hard time narrowing things down and we wish we could have picked everyone....... blah, blah, blah.......... yaddah, yaddah, yaddah....... Ok, I know that consolations are never that consoling. So instead, how about a $5 gift certificate to misspaperjane.com for everyone that applied? True, it's not what most of you were hoping for. But we are sincerely thankful to all the effort and talent shown by so many that we wanted to do something nice for everyone! For the top 20, we'll have a special gift. But, those details can wait until tomorrow. Here are the names of the................ I would say lucky, but I think ambitious, hardworking, persevering or extremely talented would fit better.............. ladies. We'll be getting in touch with you!

Danielle Layton
Leah Killian
Davinie Fiero
Kathy Thompson
Natasja Verbeek
Anthea Peterson
Debbie Olson
Yukari Takanashi
Danielle Quarmby
Laura Craigie
Katja Lampert
