Ten more places left for contenders in this year's Best of the Best awards. Ten more topics to get that 1st place in the Editor's Choice. We've got a really wide range of contenders already. Who'll be next?

Is it time to call my designer about my evening gown yet? I want to look to look nice for my walk down the red carpet to the FaithWriter's "Oscar" presentation. :lol:

This could get complicated. I'll have to make sure I'm not using the same designer as anyone else. You know, like Debbie or Lynda, or, or....Tim.

Still chuckling at Betty's last post (FW awards. Sounds like fun!)

Just added Lisa's latest victory to the list as our 32nd contender. That's two she has in the running now. What a line up! So many worthy contenders (and still eight places to go).

Love, Deb

Well done to Rachel, coming home to FaithWriters and landing slap bang in the 33rd slot as a contender for this year's Best of the Best awards.

I've just updated the list for the last four weeks, and that brings us up to (and including) our 37th spot in the Best of the Best Contender list. Just three more spaces to fill, and only one more topic left after Bitter and Sweet closes.

Who will be our Best of the Best Champion this year?

Love, Deb

One place to go, and we'll know who that is on Thursday. It's getting exciting!

And Yippee for Verna (a faithful friend and FW if ever there was one) in capturing the last first place!
