Default January Contest - Winter Weather - Win $50 Amazon

This month's theme: Winter Weather

"Walking in a winter wonderland..."

The holidays are over, but winter is in full force. Get inspired by the cold season, use your crafty skills, and enter to win a $50 Amazon.com e-gift card.

Ideas:
- Crochet a winter scarf
- Paint a snow scene
- Maybe winter is still warm where you live, why not create a scrapbook page or postcard showing off the enviable fun?
...the ideas are endless, but I think you all get the theme.

How to Enter:
You will need at least 2 photos.
1- A photo of the item in progress. (We love photos of you making it!)
2- A photo of the finished craft


Entries Go in This Thread
Feel free to comment on other projects and have fun in this thread, but only posts with photos and explanations will be considered valid entries.

Up to 3 Entries Per Person
We will allow up to 3 valid entries per person, but each must be a completely different craft project.

How is a winner picked?
At the end of each month we will use Random.org to pick winner. The winner will receive a $50 Amazon.com gift card.

Good Luck!


What is the Craft of the Month Contest?
Each month we are going to pick a theme or topic and everyone can create a craft based on that theme. You're free to create whatever you like using any type of crafting method but it must be something you create and it must be inspired by our theme of the month. This month's theme: Winter Weather

P.S. Yes, making a snowman counts! That's crafting in your yard.

Those of us without snow can still get creative... maybe a sandman at the beach.

Whatever you decide to enter, have fun and enjoy the winter weather!

Our snow is gone! This has been the oddest winter.... I'll definitely have to give this one some thought.

Ok, I'm in too.

We don't get much snow here, but it's very cold right now and I'm in the middle of a project that keeps me warm while I'm working on it, so maybe this will be my encouragement to finish it soon.

Hmm, I wonder what that could be??? Perhaps a blanket?? I could use one right now. I'm sitting here freezing. I just realized that I was so busy today that I never thought to turn the heat up. lol

That is perfect Rasha! Thanks! I am planning to make a sock monkey this month as it is...
I'm going to try to come up with another idea as well.

No blanket. I'm trying to finish another very large rag rug for our local Historical Society. They really liked the one I made for them last year and I have enough supplies left over to make another one. It will be five feet across when it's done, same as the last one. The only difference is that the last one I did in 18 days. I'm not even going to try to do that again.
