it is time to pick

Everyone had such wonderful ideas that I agonized over which 3 to pick (I am still debating on which 3 as I type this)... Ben couldn't pick either! So True had to do it (well, she helped just a little like posing for the picture)...
vote please
Here are your three options:

1. Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh (from Laura)
2. Woodland... gnomes, toadstools and a deer (from Angela)
3. Octopus... tentacles dangling, shells, seaweed (from Rust and Roses)

You have until next Wednesday, January 28th until midnight PST to get your vote in. Please vote only once, but if you would like to blog about it and link to this post to get more votes in from friends and family, go ahead and do so. The crown idea with the most votes will get turned into a crown and be given to the idea giver. I hope I am making sense...

It really was so hard to narrow it down, but I have to share my other favorites that almost made it:
- Parisian theme, whom had a few idea contributors, which also made it hard to pick this one, but I would so love to do this crown! I am thinking I might, so that my girls will have a new one sitting on their shelf.
- Frida Kahlo inspired crown (from Miko Design).
- Third Eye... this would have funny (from Amy).
Oh and there were so many more! Really, the list could go on... 

Thank you for everyone for sharing your thoughts and ideas. I loved reading each one. You are all some really creative folk!!!

Have a wonderful and creative-filled weekend... and happy voting!!!

  1. Wow, that is a hard choice because all three would look great as a crown.. but I will have to say #2 because I'm a sucker for a toadstool! :)

  9. octopus crown, all the way! :O) having two boys definitely influences me!!! but i love how you described it with the tentacles intermixing with seashells and whatnot. it could be so pretty - or so boyish, depending on your interpretation!

    can't wait to see the winning piece finished :O)

  20. I vote for the octopus, so original and unexpected!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love to say Woodland, but it has been done over and over. However, I haven't seen an Octopus!! I can't even begin to imagine. That is my vote!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I vote octupus because I think it is going to be more of a challenge for you to come up with something.

    ReplyDelete
  23. octopus! it seems most original :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the starry starry nite motif, it's classy and challenging, and my kids wouldn't be swinging tentacles and toadstools all over the b-day cake ;) Texture layers of embroidery will appear somewhat like the oil on canvas and if my little girls ever see the real one-or even a copy-they will definately know that they have seen it before.

  31. I heart Van Gogh, so although the others sound grand...I vote for Staryy Night!!!! Cannot wait to see your creation Ruby!

  32. Hi there! All three deserve recognition, but I envision the starry night crown coming out best. That's my vote. Plus, it would be a great all-around celebratory crown for almost any occasion.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Woodland is my preference!
    Can't wait to see the end result, no matter what wins.....but definitel woodland! LOL :)

  34. RUBY!!! i hope this isn't too revealing a comment, but...

    your sister richelle is totally right. you are absolutely a celebrity in my book :O) you should hear me talk about you when people ask about any of eleanor's many cakies. it goes something like this:

    stranger i meet at the supermarket/target/disneyland/park/insert any place here: "oh my gosh. she is so sweet! how adorable she is with that little bow/flower (this part depends on the outfit) in her hair! how in the world do you keep it in her hair? did you make that?"

    first i smile and then chuckle a bit (i've heard this about 500 times now - and i love it!) and then i say something along these lines:

    "why thank you very much. yes, she is the sweetest, isn't she??? and her hair clip is made by my good friend ruby (wink!) who makes the most amazing things. (at this point i rattle off "crowns, dolls, clutches - and anything else i beg you to attempt on my daughter's behalf!) if you are interested in ordering something from her i can give you her website address..." etc.

    and everyone walks away very happy.

    see? richelle is right :O) sisters usually are when they are teasing.

    love, susan

  35. last comment from me, honest!

    hugs, susan
