We Have a New Slogan(s)

All the entries are in for our FBC Slogan Contest.  We had a lot of fun reading them all and when it came right down to it, we just couldn’t decide on one so… we have two!

Our first winner was inspired by Jessica from She Bakes Here.  We had to alter a wee bit for design purposes but we loved the idea she gave us!

FBC Poutine Ad

Our second winner was Valerie from More Than Burnt Toast with her reference to the quintessentially Canadian buttertart!

Ethan will be in touch with both of you in the coming week about claiming your prizes!  Thanks to everyone who entered – you all are a very creative bunch!


The Ninjamatics 2011 Canadian Weblog Awards were announced last week and we had a few members who deserve some well-earned congratulations:

Jeannette from Everybody Likes Sandwiches won Best Designed Weblog.

Genevieve from Vanilla and Spice placed second in Best New Weblog and in the Best Weblog About Food & Drink.

The third place winner for Best Weblog about Gardening and second place in the Best Life Weblog went to Karlynn at The Kitchen Magpie.

Taking third place in the Best Weblog About Family & Parenting was last week’s featured blogger, Aimee from Under the Highchair

And taking first and third in the Best Weblog About Food & Drink were Isabelle  from Crumb: A Food Blog and Dara from Cookin’ Canuck!

    Thanks for sharing the Canadian Weblog Awards winners….just wanted to clarify, I placed second in both my categories (I wouldn’t want to take away the win from best new weblog winner!)

    Love the new slogans (& now I really want a buttertart). And thanks for the love!

    thanks for pointing that out Genevieve! I’ve fixed it. Maybe I was just being biased and thought you should have been first :)
