Well, only hours remain for voting in the Mayesh Design Star contest. Since making it to the top 5 as a finalist, I have been overwhelmed with private messages, tweets, and emails offering support and encouragement. It’s wonderful to know that design matters, and a girl who lives in the cornfield can make a difference. Even if I don’t win, it’s been a blast and I’ve connected with so many.
And the competition is stiff! Three of the top 5 are AIFD accredited floral designers. That’s just awesome…it speaks to the strength and power of the brand. I’m truly in good company.
Finalists went through a phone interview, and during that conversation, I was asked WHY I wanted to be the design star. Was it the trip, the exposure, hopes of riches and glory? (OK, I made up that last part)
Actually it was none of those things. I just love sharing my love of flowers and design. Being the design star would grant me an opportunity to share in a big way. One of my fave sayings of the south is “Go big or go home” …..so why not? Why not take risks and just go for it?
That’s why I entered. To share. The other stuff is just icing on the cake. We will find out who won the cake on Oct 2. In the meantime, voting is over at 11:45 tonight….not mich time left to vote.
So go vote already!
