National Craft Month: Simply Create Contest

March is National Craft Month!! I am hosting a Craft Contest that starts TODAY and the Challenge is to Simply Create. Those who want to enter will link up their ideas and the top 3 winners will be announced. That means there will be an abundance of great ideas, as well as BEAUTIFUL prizes up for grabs!!

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, educations, backgrounds or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Everyone can create; you don't need money, position or influence to create something of substance or beauty. You might say "I'm not the creative type." If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative Being in the universe." --Deiter F. Uchtdorf

I have changed my blog description from "beautiful products for babies and moms" to "simply creative projects" I feel like the purpose of this blog is more than just a place for me to display the patterns I have created for babies and mothers, but a place for creativity to dwell. I am inspired by many of the craft blogs, and hope to feature other's ideas, projects and tutorials.
So my blog challenge is to simply create something beautiful. I will have a link-up available starting NOW through March 26. You can link up (2) of your favortie crafts into the contest. then, starting on March 27, YOU get to VOTE on the winners. Voting ends March 31. On April 1 (Yes, April Fool's Day, but this is NOT a joke!) I will announce a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner of our favorite creations!! HAPPY CRAFTING!

Here are the RULES:
1. The creation must be your idea. If you've taken a few different ideas and turned it into something new, just make sure it is different enough to be recognized as your own.
2. You must be a follower (and/or facebook fan) and sport my button somewhere on your blog (or on the post you make for the contest--see below).
3. You may enter no more than (2) different creations by linking them up-- this means you must have your own blog or web post about the creation. It doesn't have to be a full tutorial, but it must include pictures and explain that you made it for this contest. If you want to enter something that you have already made, make another post during the month of March.
4. And the best part?! You get to VOTE for you favorites! Each person can only vote 1 TIME! So feel free to encourage your readers to visit here and vote.

Here are the PRIZES: 1st place winner will get first pick, 2nd place winner will get second pick and 3rd place winner will get the last pick- but how can you go wrong with these darling prizes?!!

See?! I told you that you wouldn't want to miss out on this contest! No creation is too small or too simple. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
