29 Nov

THANK YOU VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS CRAFT CHALLENGE ~ ANY VOTES MADE AFTER 8PM WILL NOT BE COUNTED. THE WINNER AND RUNNERS UP WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT 9PM.

Welcome to The Crafty Network Blog Craft Challenge.  We are now asking for people to VOTE for their favourite entry from the selection of entries below, to enable us to declare a Winner and 2 Runners Up of this challenge on Friday evening.

(Not sure what this is all about, then please visit: Challenge Rules and see details about the theme for this challenge in the previous post.)

A big thank you to everyone who entered the challenge this week, our last one for this year, awwww!  This week we were looking for Festive Crafts or Crafts suitable as gifts for the Festive season and as always I like to ‘stretttccchhh’ the theme as much as possible to give everyone a chance to send in an entry.  We have some really lovely entries this week and all would make great gifts for Christmas!

Talking about Gifts for Christmas I hope you don’t mind if I take this opportunity to give a little plug for our Handmade Christmas Gifts Guide, it is full of unique handmade gift ideas, which are all available to buy and the items are made by many of the crafters who can be found in our directories, taken part in our craft challenges or are followers of our Facebook page. Please click the photo to be taken to the Album, once you have voted. Thank you, supporting handmade this Christmas would be really appreciated.

So now, as always, the hard part is handed over to you, please decide which of the 28 fantastic entries we received is your favourite.  Please take the time to have a look through all the entries and then vote and support these people, I know as always it is going to be a difficult decision.

Also, if you could share and promote this challenge to encourage more people to vote, it really would be appreciated.

THE VOTING! 

In order to declare a WINNER of this Competition, we need YOU our lovely Followers to comment below this post quoting the No. of the photo you like best.  For those of you who are undecided, you can vote for more than one, but limit it to choosing just 3 and please make it clear which is your first, second and third choice.

ie. No. 1 = 3pts (1st choice),   No. 2 = 2pts (2nd choice), No. 6 = 1pt (3rd choice).

If you pick just one, this will count as 3 points.

No. 25 The Lilac Dragonfly ~ www.thelilacdragonfly.com Email: sarah@thelilacdragonfly.com

These are my best selling original Lilac Dragonfly Snowman Earrings…Complete with sparkly red scarf!  On Sterling Silver or silver plate earwires.

http://www.thelilacdragonfly.com/dragonflyshop/prod_1683706-Snowman-Earrings.html

Brings a smile to the face of all who see them 😀

No. 26  Buy Me for You (on FB as www.facebook.com/sewuniqueoriginals) Website: http://www.buymeforyou.co.uk/

This is my version of a fabric advent calendar. It’s all handmade, numbers are all handstitched and has 2 loops to hang with individual pockets for treats/sweets, a real labour of love but totally worth it, I think.

No. 27  Encharmed by Christy ~ , https://www.facebook.com/pages/EnCharmed-By-Christy/319338598174243?ref=hl. For additional information, you may contact me through my e-mail (encharmedbychristy@gmail.com

I’ve created a beaded ornament for the Christmas tree. For me, this time of year has a wonderful meaning, the birth of Jesus Christ. Being inspired in the purity of Christmas, I’ve created an ornament with crystal beads, in a form of a square (also available in a shape of a heart). The ornament contains more than 60 crystal beads. Along with this crystal ornament, I’ve made a collection of other ornaments, with crystal and pearl beads, a wonderful combination for a white Christmas decoration. The other ornaments can be found in my Facebook page.

No. 28 Lizzie Rose Jewellery ~ www.etsy.com/shop/lizzierosejewelry

Christmas Angel Bag Charms that I made for a School Christmas Bazaar for the kids to buy presents for their families.
