Everyone Has Their Favorite Toy

umm, I mean tool. Enter the new Mirrix contest and you could win an 8 inch Lani Loom with shedding device from Mirrix that is destined to become your favorite toy/tool ever.

The details are below.

What's Your 'Me' Time?

Me TimeLani Loom
Everyone has their 'me' time. For some it's a relaxing bubble bath and for others a long walk. For many of us, though, 'me' time happens at the craft table. We find solace in making. We find inspiration in creating. We need this time to nurture our souls and to take some of the stress out of everyday life. For our latest contest, we will ask you to describe how creating art is your 'me' time. This is not limited to weaving fiber or beads. Any art counts. Speak from the heart. We will have five guest judges from the bead and tapestry communities pick the top twenty entries and the public will vote for their favorite out of those.
How to Enter: Email us (elena@mirrixlooms.com) explaining why creating art is your 'me' time. Maximum 500 words. Minimum 200 words. Please include your full name in the email and clearly note that this is a contest entry in your email subject. ALL entries due by midnight (PT) 8/31/2013.
On September 1st our judges will choose 20 entries based on originality (25%), creativity (60%) and relevance (20%). Then, the rest is up to the public! Our final winner will be chosen based on votes from the Mirrix commnuity using the same set of criteria. Voting will last from September 2nd to the 15th and the winner will be announced on September 16th!
