"While many thought this year's theme, the season of winter, was restrictive, the entries we recieved this year *proved* that snow and ice could be just as pretty, if not prettier, than any spring or summer counterparts. We recieved entries from many talented designers, and while santa was nowhere to be seen (*sigh*), these cold, beautiful entries stood out from the rest."
