Penguin Favorites of 2010

Happy New Year! I hope you're having a wonderful start to 2011! :D
Before I jump into this year's resolutions and such, today, I thought I'd share my favorite personalized penguins from 2010. I'm so thankful that I was able to work with so many wonderful people despite the fact that I wasn't able to take nearly half as many orders as 2009 due to my pregnancy and maternity leave. Thank you for your patience and for letting me create your custom penguins! I'm hoping this year, I'll be able to juggle motherhood and penguin orders as gracefully as possible. ;)
Here are my top 3 favorite personalized penguins of 2010:
#3: Pineapple Penguin
#2: French Penguin
#1: Surprise!
Am I evil or what? I'll be revealing my favorite personalized penguin tomorrow! ;) Can you guess what it is? Which has been your favorite?

Fan Food Contest 2010 Winners

Before I announce the winner of this year's Fan Food Contest, I just want to really thank everyone who participated! You are all awesome for taking the time to create such yummy-looking entries and for taking the time to vote for your favorites! It's such a great experience to be able to connect with my supporters. Every time I look at the creations (including last year's), I can't help myself from smiling so big. :D Alright, enough mushy stuff.

It was seriously difficult to choose the official winner this year. I mean, they are all so creative and have different highlighting qualities that I wanted every single one of them to win! And I'm not saying that just to be nice. I really had a tough time, hence the delayed post today. Brandon and I went back and forth a lot and here we are now announcing our final decision. The winners for this year:

My Dear Donuts by Tommy

Seaweed Skater by Kaman
