First, one last huge thank you to Pamela for our lovely, leafy badge of the past fourteen months!
Much appreciation, Pamela!
And now …
The race was close, the contestants neck-and-neck most of the day. It was a nail-biter, all right. Then, in the evening (my time) a few badges shot ahead. I gasped–who was going to win?
Yeah, I’m stalling.
Okay, counting down. Here we go.
Oh, wait. First, I should explain that there were two ties, one for 4th place, and one for 5th place. So last place is actually 8th.
So here we go.
In 8th place, we have Janet, with Rocktober! I loved your badge, but I’m afraid you were just ahead of your time with the symbolic stream of light. Best of luck next time!
In 7th place …
Keep in mind, these were all very close. Like, within one vote of each other!
In 7th place, Wendy, with Signpost!
Coming in 6th, we had Willow’s Waterfall!
Tied for 5th, Pensitivity, with Canoe, and Jill, with Flowers! They ran a close race all day.
In 4th place, we have another tie between Paula, with Pets, and Fandango, with Geese! Seems the animals stuck together this time around.
Now, for 3rd place …
By the way, if anyone wants to know exactly how many votes there were on which badge, I’ll be happy to e-mail you with a screenshot of the poll. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where was I?
Oh yeah, third place.
The bronze medal goes to none other than JoAnna, with Babbling brook! Congratulations, JoAnna!
That brings us down to our first and second place contestants. Who could they be?
Should I write another post?
Nah, I’ve made you wait long enough.
The honour of second place goes to
Barbara, with Notebook! Congratulations on your silver medal-winning badge, Barbara!
Which means, our new 2019-2020 SoCS badge was designed by Shelley, with Drops of water!
Thank you so much, Shelley, for your beautiful design. And congratulations!!
