DYOBB Contest: Voting Is Now Open!

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010


That’s about all I can muster.

Over the past 3 weeks, we’ve had hundreds of amazing baby bedding designs submitted in our first ever Design-Your-Own-Baby-Bedding (DYOBB) contest.  Seriously…they were amazing!

I can’t even begin to tell you how difficult it was for us to select 10 finalists, but those were the rules so we hunkered down and did it.  And I have say, we’re really excited about the designs we selected!

Before we unveil our finalists, we’d like to thank everyone who participated and took the time to design baby bedding with our DYOBB interactive tool!  There were some beautiful designs, some creative names, and lots envelope pushing!

For example, there was crib bedding designed for:

  • Goth Babies;
  • Notre Dame fans;
  • People who love purple cribs; and,
  • Babies who can sleep in a nursery with hot pink walls!

Yeah, we got pretty much everything.

So without further ado, we’d like to unveil our 10 finalists.  Here are the rules for the voting period:

  1. You can vote only once.
  2. You can vote for only one collection.
  3. Voting will be open until Midnight on Monday, June 28th.
  4. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, June 30th!

The designer of the winning collection will be awarded their “Dream” baby bedding, or up to $500 put toward anything they’ve purchased during the contest period!

And if one of our 10 finalists designed a collection you just have to haveBuy it! Each collection can be purchased as is, or you can click “customize” to personalize the bedding so it’s perfect for you and your baby!

Don’t forget to tell all of your friends to vote for their favorite, but most of all…Have fun!!

Got a cute baby?

Do you live in the Atlanta area?

Carousel Designs is conducting a local model search for an upcoming photo shoot and your mini-me might be the star we’re looking for!

We’re casting baby girls and boys, approximately 8 to 10 months old, for a June 27th (and possibly June 28th) photo shoot.  Ideally, we’re looking for little models who can pull up, but aren’t yet walking.  We’ll be photographing our newest crib bedding collections for our website,, as well as for a print catalogue.

If you’d like us to consider your little one, please E-mail your name, address and contact information as well as a recent snapshot of your baby by June 15th to suzanne.abbot @ carouseldesigns . com.

If we choose your child for the shoot, you’ll receive a $100 gift certificate from Carousel Designs!
