First Contest - Early Finishers

Our first contest is for everyone who likes to complete a project early. I have been sent several magazines from Stampington including two Summer 2008 Somerset Life, the last four issues of Altered Couture and a YEAR's worth of Belle Armoire magazines! This are exclusively for the first SEVEN participants who mail their finished swap packages and send me the tracking/delivery confirmation information. Now, does that mean you do a rushed and sloppy job to win? Of course not, but I'm hoping there is enough to give you incentive to start and perhaps be an early finisher!

Special thanks to Stampington! They have been collecting apron submissions for months now and will have a new publication soon, Apronology. I know everyone will be overjoyed to finally have a magazine directed to this fun accessory!!


Deadline: September 15, 2008 (RECEIVE)

Apron*ology: Aprons with an Attitude

Stampington and Company
New Publication

No longer relegated to hanging in the kitchen pantry, today's aprons are meant to be seen.

Apron*ology will be a gallery of delightful photographs and illustrations featuring exciting apron designs with easy to understand techniques and templates that will be fun for the DIY-er to recreate. Apron*ology will also feature ideas on how to re-purpose vintage aprons and how to wear them with just the right attitude and style.

Apron enthusiasts are invited to submit and be a part of of this exciting publication. Here's what we're looking for:

  • Aprons of all sizes, styles and shapes with brief instructions on how they are made. (If including a template, submit your apron with template designs unique to your apron.)

  • Aprons used in new and innovative ways. Some ideas include using aprons to:
    • Hang as window treatments
    • Wrap gifts
    • Alter and create new wearable or decor items
    • Aprons stylishly worn as an enhancing accessory. For example, put one under or over a skirt, skinny jeans or to give that dress just the right panache. (These aprons can be either original or altered designs.)

Submissions due no later than September 15, 2008 to:

22992 Mill Creek, Suite B
Laguna Hills, CA 92653
