Winners Announced!

Ok... so none of you will be reading this post, so I'm tempted to just go on and on and then slowly but surely weave in the name of the winners so that you HAVE to read this post, but then I think that all of you will hate me even MORE than you already will because I have been nominated to be the bearer of both the good AND the bad news of our So You Think You Can Design contest. . .

SO... without further ado... congratulations to not ONE, not TWO but THREE new designers who will be coming on board as the newest Orchard Girls!

Congratulations Kit Designers:

Tabrizia - Franziska Altmann

PDPlum Amy - Amy Brever

and our newest Template Designer:

Sine!

Welcome ladies! We're so happy to have you join us! For those of you who we were not able bring on board, we want to give you a huge pat on the back and a great big thank you for all of your hard work! We saw you all grow as designers and we're sure that it's just a matter of time until we see your gorgeous designs in stores everywhere!

We hope to continue to see you around the Orchard and we're always here to help in any way we can!

Aloha!

Congratulations Franziska, Amy, and Sine!! I can only imagine how hard it was to make the decision.
Best of luck to those who weren't chosen. I'm sure we'll be seeing you designing for other stores as you all are so very talented!
