Two quick things to share with you all.
First, Amomofelly sent me three more coloring pages! They’re very sweet. I’ve put them up on the Gear page, check them out. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’d love to have some of these pages after they’ve been colored. Send photos or scans to me (ann @ shinypebble . com) to help celebrate our 3rd birthday.
Second, the Children’s Eye Foundation just announced the start of their third annual “I Care for Eye Care” photo contest. The theme this year is “visions of home.” The 12 photos with the most votes receive a digital camera, but more exciting for me is that photos are also chosen to be published in their 2012 calendar. I feel strongly that this calendar should include pictures of kids in glasses. And I also strongly believe that we have a lot of beautiful kids here. The last two years, we’ve had a lot of photos end up in the calendars. If you do submit a photo, let me know, and once voting starts, I’ll post links to our submissions, so we can support each other. Full rules for the contest are here.
Thanks for mentioning the contest, Ann. We also strongly believe the contest should have relevant submissions, like kids with glasses, so we encourage submissions from all your readers.
Ultimately, me and a few others select the entries to be included in the calendar, so that way we don’t end up with a random picture of a dog in there. 🙂
Thanks Tom! You guys have done a great job choosing photos these past two years. I just want to make your job harder and make sure you have a lot of great pictures to choose from 🙂
I agree–this calendar needs to be filled with cute kids with glasses! I’ve submitted the last 2 years and submitted this year as well. My little cutie, Peyton, is on page 10 and the title is “Little Ladybug”.
