Crafty Contests and other Announcements
We interrupt this very relaxed (i.e. sick to my stomach, so not going anywhere) vacation to announce the Tote-ally Crafty Bag Challenge at Craft Stylish. Head on over to the site to view all of the rules, then enter your original handmade handbag for a chance to win a gift bag stuffed with prizes worth over $250. There are categories that cover every craft, from sewing to knitting, crocheting, embellishing and even recycling. The deadline for entries is July 31 so get cracking!
While you’re over there, check out my super simple beaded chain stitch necklace tutorial…or perhaps you’d rather learn to crochet with fabric? There are tons of other great posts to check out as well, and I’ve got some crocheted flower how tos coming up this and next week.
I also stumbled upon this gigantor tutorial link list and wanted to share it with you– perhaps you’ll find some inspiration for the tote bag challenge (or whatever is brewing in your head) there. I’ve been thinking of the zillion cute things I could make my nephew now, and this looks like a good jumping off point. I can’t stop thinking about how cute he is and how I can see him again soon.
And, just a note for those of you who continue to find your way here because you are upset about your Adorn subcriptions: I am not the correct person to contact with these requests. Please email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, I have no pull with them. Zip. Zero. Not me! Good luck and be persistent.
