Crafter's Challenge - Gift Labels

December is a very busy month for everyone, especially crafters. Whether participating in craft fairs, shows and/or boutiques or finishing up last minute Christmas gifts (not to mention shopping, baking, partying) we crafters are in a frazzled daze from December 1st to December 24th at midnight when we are stitching the last bit of trim on a gift that must be wrapped before bed.

Captive Illusions and Captive Embroidery would like to propose our first challenge. Let’s see who can create the most awe-inspiring label for their artwork. Anything goes from paint, ink, or embroidery floss to macaroni, garden stones, kidney stones (no, not really!) to beads or bobbles. Be creative; let your imagination soar.

Email a picture of your labor of love with your chosen labeling method to captiveembroidery (at) gmail (dot) com.

We’ve developed a point system for the judging which will include presentation, imagination, implementation, and originality. The label with the highest points will be declared the winner and will receive a surprise gift. All other labels will be put into a random drawing; the label drawn will also receive a surprise gift.

The rules are simple…the label must be created by you on an item you personally created as a gift to someone for Christmas 2010. Don’t worry, we are not spoiled sports. The entries will not be displayed until after the New Year.

Happy Labeling,

  Grandma Cat's Attic      

*Gifts for winners will be determined by total number of entries. Drawing winner will be chosen through Winners will be posted after they have been notified.
