amazing stuff, nicies.
thanks so much for playing! it was so heartwarming to read of your own love of handmaking and the pieces that inspire you!

and now our judges have narrowed down (what a task that would have been... the nominations were all so amazing!) the field to their favourite 10 (-ish) nominations in each event!
