Hey guys, guess what! I dont know if you heard or not but Build a Bear workshop held an international contest to have someone design a new outfit for their mascot, Beremy. I entered and am a semi finalist for my design!!! I am so excited. The grand prize is a $5,000 scholarship, my design being the new face of build a bear, and a trip for 4 to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC!! Winning this scholarship would be so awesome because I can't afford to go to college. Anyways, who will be chosen finalists will be decided by public votes. If you go online to buildabear.com/sweeps you can vote for my design. Look under the right column of designs: under my design it says 'Vote for Melinda' and 'smile!". I'll keep you guys informed about how it progresses. Thanks for your support. With God, anythng is entirely possible.
