I had to type up a quick post to show you a couple of the submissions Cynthia and I have already received for our custom apron giveaway. I hope these creative entries spark your imagination – the contest is open until April 30th! For all the details, check out my post: The Custom Cupcake Provocateur Apron Contest is Back!
These two submissions from Lavina G. are each adorable in their own way. I love the idea of a puffy rainbow apron – brings me back to my Rainbow Bright days! Are you starting to think of ideas of your own? Good!
There is a special place in my cold, black heart for this design, and not just because its designer Chelsie J. is the driving force behind Dottie the Demon Darling jewelry, either. Even Satan has a housewife, right?
Your last teaser comes from Erica F., who was inspired by the cherry blossoms in her former Japanese home. A military wife, she often baked cookies for the marines, and this apron reminds her of those times.
So as you can see, contestants are drawing inspiration from lots of places! OK, I lied… one more. I made a collage to describe my dream apron back in 2012:
“Peg Bundy meets The Cramps – would be a half apron that ties with a black patent faux-leather sash. An acidic-colored leopard print skirt – lime green or hot pink – with loads of fluffy tulle underneath to make it poofy and obnoxious. I will wear it while lying on my couch watching Russ Meyers films and eating bon bons.”
So as you can see, you don’t need to be Michelangelo to send us your idea – just sketch it, make a collage, or whatever you need to do to describe the apron of your dreams! One lucky contestant will receive his or her apron, custom-made! Now get to work! Send your submissions to CPApron2012@gmail.com before April 30th!
