Oh you guys. This was hard. Hard for me, hard for the judges. Thank you to Amanda and Dennis. I could not have made these decisions on my own.
I can't tell you though how much joy this has brought me, and hopefully you. I hope that you'll keep wearing and loving your cat dresses and that you will also continue to make beautiful clothing.
I'm taking the liberty to add a couple of awards. Because I can do that. It's my contest. And I love prizes. We'll start with the kitties.
The winner of the kitten dress contest is!!!!!!!!
Very Shannon. We were all charmed by that sweetheart back and that doll face.

Next we have the lady Cat prizes!
This was so hard. I just want you to know that it was really really difficult.

Thank you all sooooooo much for participating. I cried every time you posted a new pic. And that's because I'm so grateful you let me be a part of your lives. I love making beautiful things and I'm so glad that you do to, and in a small way I get to be a part of that.
prize winners, send me an email and we'll get your winnings heading your way.
And with that I officially sign off from being a judge of anything. Until the next dress contest of course.
I love love love you all. Thanks for playing and filling my life with joys, and too many good tears to count. xoxoxoxoxoxo
