The Winners of the Golden Coffee Cup

Hi folks, it's time to announce the winners of the 2008 Golden Coffee Cup! Everyone is a winner who participates, but only four take home that steaming cup of hot java and the coveted golden coffee cup award! Here's this year awesome graphic!




This year the four winners are as follows:

Julie Reinhardt -- She finished up her whole cookbook project. This is Julie's first win since she received "Most Improved" on the soccer team her freshman year in high school. Snap! Snap! Snap!

Kjersten Hayes -- She fell behind, almost gave up, and then kicked into gear, finishing her goal!!! Snap! Snap! Snap!

Trudi Trueit -- She felt like giving up, but kept on going, and in the end reached the spot where there was no going back !!! Snap! Snap! Snap!

Lois Brandt -- She was also a Nanowrimo participant and wrote all 50,000 words of her next novel. She also lead an intrepid group to the same glorious goal. Snap! Snap! Snap!

If you are a winner and didn't make it to Seattle Kid-lit Drink night, email me your address and I'll pop your graphic and java in the mail!

Thank you all for participating. Special thanks to the talented Holly Cupala who offered her special cheer leading skills to this year's Golden Coffee Cup and made the journey way more cool! I hope the warmth of inspiration has gotten a fire going inside you. Have fun creating! See you next year. Until then check out my weekly posts with original doodles, crafts tips, marketing stuff, and, yes, more inspiration. Seize the day! Molly:)

Hooray! The only other thing I have ever won was a giant jar filled with candy hearts in the second grade. I guessed closest to the number of hearts inside the jar (542) on Valentine's Day and took home a glass bottle of candy almost as big as I was (I am good with food). Thank you, Molly, for a month of uplifting messages sent with the joy and passion of a dedicated wordsmith! Your daily beacon reminded us why we do what we do, and how to do it to the best of our abilities!
