    No word here. I did end up entering.

  6. Chalyn Coleman says

    I really wanted to win this one, I think I was pretty creative with my entry.

  7. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    It's not over yet. They say "on or about" in the rules to give you a general idea when they plan on notifying winners but that doesn't mean they definitely notify them on the 24th.

  8. The winners are posted on the site. I unfortunately did not win but I'll be ready for next year! 🙂
