Amy Butler Spanky Name Badge Challenge

I have offered to give away 4 bag tags (one of my favorite MJE designs) to those who were willing to post to their blog about the Amy Butler Spanky Name Badge Challenge. This is like a press release in the bloggy-sphere (foggy-sphere for me right is 5 AM :).

One thing I so rudely overlooked is that there are many fine people out there, including Linda (who left me a friendly reminder) who don't have a blog. I apologize for my here you go Linda.....e-mail 5 friends who sew/stitch/create and tell them about this challenge and leave a comment saying you e-mailed 5 friends and I'll put your name in the drawing.

If there is anyone out there who does not have 5 friends on their e-mail me on my private line....this could be a sign you have a personal barrier I may be able to help you overcome :)

Apologetic Smiles,

Details For The Fun :)

3 x 4 inches

I had to put the boys down for a nap. As I'm laying there trying to get them to quiet down....I'm thinking to might be nice if I let people know the exact size of the name badges they give us at Quilt Market. Helpful information ay?

Lame Brain Smiles,

More Fun at I Have A Notion?

Yes sir-e-Bob....more fun here at I Have A Notion. While at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh this Spring I met Amy Butler.

When I saw Amy's booth it was exactly what I expected, bright, beautiful, fresh and full of AB fabrics and creations. I did not know what Amy Butler actually looked like because I had never met her. It was a fun surprise to see how tall she was/is and what a warm welcoming smile she had. Amy did not know me from Adam/Stella but she took the time to say hello and take a photo with her. Her staff were so friendly....what a fun bunch of gals.

What I did not expect to see was a plastic name badge on an elastic cord hanging around Amy's neck. Everyone who attends Quilt Market needs to wear their name badge of course.....and these are what the conference provides....plastic with an elastic cord. Mind you I'm not complaining..... however I see many of these people as the front edge of the Quilting/Fabric/Designing/Creative textile world.

This is the plastic name badge holder provided. I'm not sending pix of mine so you won't have "pre-disposed" ideas create something new and different :)

The four of us from I Have A Notion were sporting our spanky name badges and I thought Amy Butler needed a spanky one too. So in my usual style....I asked why a girl like her with "it all go-in on" was sporting a plastic name badge. Thankfully she did not ask me to leave her booth...LOL. Then it dawned on me....these folks spend all their time prep-ing to just get to Market with all their lines and displays....who has time to make spanky name badges.

Problem solved.

I Have A Notion is hosting a challenge.....You get to design Amy Butler and her teams name badges. Yes you!!! How fun is that? All you have to do is design one, a prototype and submit a photo or photos to me. I'll forward all photos to Amy and she will decide which she likes the best. Then you will be sent fabric from her latest line to make 6 identical badges. Everyone in the AB booth will be wearing your personally designed name badges. Oh yea baby!!!

What is in it for you?

One, the pride in seeing your name badges on Amy Butler and her staff. (I plan on taking lots of pix in Houston) Two, your name posted here on I Have A Notion as a "Spanked Out Designer." These four patterns, Stationary and some surprise goodies from Amy.

Are you in?

Here's the skinny:

Design one name badge using any fabric you have in your stash. The design is what she is looking for....not the fabric at this point. Submit photos to by Thursday Aug. 27th at 9:00 AM. For your prototype you do not need to put the plastic window in the badge holder. I will forward all the photos to Amy and her staff. The winner will be announced on Monday Aug. 31st right here on IHAN blog. Amy Butler's staff will ship out fabric from her latest line and you will have until Sept. 25th to complete the 6 name badges (all the same using the AB fabric sent to you) and return them to ABDesigns. (return postage will be covered) I know it is a tight time line already. What I know is the more time a person has to do something....the more thinking goes into the process. Don't stress, "Just Do It."

This challenge is only open to US residents. Wipe your tears Khris....I'm sorry.....but given the tight time line shipping fabric back and forth won't allow time to get everything ready in time for these fun gals to be sporting their badges in Houston in October.

Who's in? E-mail me with your name, address and phone number if you want to be included in the challenge. In the title of your e-mail please write: Amy Butler Spanky Name Badge Challenge :)
How about you tell others about this challenge? Blog about it....go ahead....I double dog dare you:)

Smiles, Kelly

PS....if you are selected to make the 6 Spanky Name Badge Holders I will send you the vinyl if you can not find some.
