Yep! You are seeing that right! Thank you to all my wonderful friends & fans for sharing my nomination on Facebook & Twitter! BECAUSE OF YOU, I am a finalist!!!

So here’s where I once again need your help …

Voting begins on Monday, September 15 and runs through October 13.

Since I am a wildcard finalist, I’m not expecting to be one of the 9 winners that Martha’s people select. So I’m up against 990 other extremely talented people for 1 spot that is chosen, by the people, through their voting. You can vote every single day, and I sincerely hope that you will vote as often as you can! Also, I need your help getting your friends to vote for me. It’s gonna take more than a village for me to secure a winning spot, and Oh! How life changing that winning spot would be!! The winner gets $10,000 to put towards their business. 10Gs! Holy guacamole! I can’t even begin to tell you what amazing things I could do if I suddenly had 10K to put into my little business. I could upgrade some equipment, which would allow me to do things like: make bigger quilts, incorporate leather into my little shoes, invest in the tools to be able to put street-worthy soles onto some shoes which (you guessed it! means byMindy shoes for grown ups!!!). So TOTALLY AMAZING THINGS could come from a winning spot. But I won’t get there without YOU! And you friends & your friends friends & their friends & so on. So please, I beg of you, help me!

Sincerely though, you all are the best! I wouldn’t have this business were it not for you. While I still have my day job, I have the dream & the hope of running byMindy full time someday, and that wouldn’t even be possible for me to daydream about, if I didn’t have each & every one of you.

So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you!


A couple of other things to note:

I’ve added a tab at the top where you can sign up for my email newsletter! This is the best way to find out first what is new, when there is a sale, and to get extra special subscriber only discounts!!

I am a mad woman & am having a Pre-Holiday Sale! Check the sale section in my etsy! I’m adding new items all this week! I don’t do this often & it won’t last long, so take advantage! Impress everyone you know & get a head start on your holiday shopping and save some serious dough!

New Designs, Stocking Up, Prepping for the Big Push

This is typically my slowest time of year, although it hasn’t been that slow so far in 2014.  Nonetheless, I’ve been working hard to get ready for “the big push” aka the rest of the year.  I’ve hammered out my new designs, ordered supplies, cleaned up & refreshed my websites, and now begin working on prototypes for the new year!  Are you all staying busy?




Stay tuned, I’m planning my first ever give-away!!  I will post details soon, but just a hint, if you aren’t already on instagram, time to sign up!
