British Craft Awards 2017 Results Are In

February 22, 2017 — 12 Comments

Well, it seems an age ago that this blog was nominated for an award and it also seems an age ago since I received an email saying that the blog had been shortlisted but finally, the results are in!

Having had this wee slice of the interweb nominated for Papercraft Blog of the Year 2017 I was curious to know how it got on.

Clicking on the email attachment that contained the list of winners I read through and … the poor mite didn’t get any of the top 3 positions, poor thing.

I nosily decided that I would look through the rest of the awards and noticed some names that you don’t often see so thought that you might like a nosey too, so, here is the list of awards and winners in the various categories as published by Immediate Media.

    So sorry you didn’t get an official award but you are no 1 with us for your amazing inspiration as well as sharing all your techniques so selflessly. The way you break down your projects, warts and all, so that us lesser mortals can follow them is fantastic. Pity more people don’t know about you and your blog else you’d have won hands down. Liz X
