Undersized Urbanite Dollhouse Contest: Thank you Christina!

Congratulations to the winners of the Undersized Urbanite Dollhouse Contest, Brae, Lyssa, and Audra! And a HUGE thank you to Christina O who created the contest, and so ably monitored and managed the contest, even when the app running the voting decided to take a day off. Christina even obtained international media recognition for the contest: photos of the winning houses will be featured in a popular European magazine that focuses on miniatures. Christina also made every entrant in the contest, including me, feel like a winner. We all found supportive comments from Christina on our blogs as we were creating the houses. Thank you again Christina, fantastic job!
Please check out the other entries here. Every one of them is exceptional.

The Winners
In addition to the fact that all of winners have beautiful, unusual names, Brae, Lyssa and Audra all created gorgeous miniature houses. Check out their winnng entries here.
Here are a few photos* of Brae's First Place entry, the outstanding Artist's Studio:








My Thank You to You
I enjoyed creating the Art Deco Bungalow as my entry in the contest. Without a doubt, however, the very best part of that creative process was the wonderful support I received from the readers of my blog as I barreled along, sometimes hitting the mark and often missing it by a mile. I have heard others say that the miniaturist community is an exceptionally supportive and kind group of people, and I know that is very true. So thank you guys, it was a great experience, and it's not over yet. I have a few ideas for the next project.....

P.s. Who knew that Hollywood would go Art Deco? Maybe they read my blog (not)? At any rate, with the release of "The Great Gatsby," there is a revival of all things jazz age. A friend went to a banquet in D.C. the other night and reported that many of the ladies there were dressed like this:
