Have You Entered the American Made Awards?

Earlier this month I launched the American Made Awards, brought to you by Avery and The UPS Store.  The editors of Martha Stewart Living magazine and I are searching for the rising stars in a new generation of small-business owners.  Ten American Makers will be selected.  In addition, one American Maker will be selected by our audience and will be given the Audience Choice Award.  If you have your own small business, shop, or Etsy shop and are doing innovative, high-quality work, please nominate yourself (or someone you know) for the Audience Choice award.  The winner will be honored at the American Made event in New York City, will appear in Martha Stewart Living, and will receive $10,000 to further his or her business. The entries we’ve received so far have inspired me with their innovation and beautiful design.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Hopefully, they’ll inspire you to enter your business; the nomination period ends Aug. 25.  For what you will need to enter, click here.
