Indie Fixx Craft-Off Contest!

In honor of Indie Fixx’s 2nd Anniversary (as opposed to my own personal wedding anniversary, which I will also be celebrating this month), I’m having yet another contest to help me and you celebrate.

This contest also requires you to do something in order to win, not collect secret words, but CRAFT!  Yes, I wrote craft!  In order to win the Indie Fixx Craft-Off, you must create a crafty item of some sort and that craft must incorporate the number two in some way.  I’m not picky about the type of craft and I will even accept creations that are more artsy or diy in nature, but whatever you decide to do, you must create it solely for the contest and you must incorporate the number two.

Here’s a breakdown of the rules:

1. Create a crafty good.

2. Incorporate the number two in your project. Examples include: create an amigurumi wearing a shirt with the number 2 on it, knit a scarf in 2 different colors (use the Indie Fixx colors for extra fun) or make two tissue paper flowers from yesterday’s Tutorial Tuesday project.

3. Types of items accepted include those created by the following means:  knitting, sewing, drawing, painting, photography, using Popsicle sticks, sky-writing, gocco creations, the use of Gimp, finger painting, or really anything that you can come up with.  Extra points will be given for creativity.

4. Make your crafty creation yourself….no help from mom!

5. To enter: Upload a photo of your entry to the Indie Fixx Craft-Off Flickr Group, email me an image of your entry or mail your entry to:

Indie Fixx Craft-Off
P.O. Box 291
Newark, DE 19715

Mailed entries cannot be returned, but will be photographed and added to the Indie Fixx Craft-Off Flickr Group. I’m not sure what I will do with any mailed entries yet, but I may do a raffle to raise money for charity. Please let me know if you would be interested in this idea or not, if you decide to mail your entry.

6.  Entries will be accepted from August 6th – September 6th.

7. The winners will be voted on by the readers of Indie Fixx. I will choose the stand-out entries and create a poll for readers to choose their favorites.   There will be two winners.

8. The Prizes!  There are two prizes for the top two winners of the reader poll. The prizes are listed below.
