V-day #craftchallenge winner

Yesterday, Jenni of Jenni20 Designs challenged her fellow Etsy Dallas members and Etsy Dallas lovers to a craft challenge: create an artistic interpretation of e.e. cummings "i carry your heart with me" by the end of Valentine's evening.  

A handful of intrepid crafters were up to the flash craft challenge and tweeted pictures of their entries. 

As they were all pretty darn awesome, Jenni was unable to pick a favorite, so she had to resort to the random number generator. 

And the winner of a $15 gift card of her choice is..... @CocoandCocoa


The runners up, in no particular order:

A Valentine's Day Contest and Giveaway

Whether you have a sweetie or not, let's celebrate l-o-v-e today with a classic poem and a fun giveaway!

Jenni, our sometimes blogger and Etsy Dallas Tweetheart, is an admitted word nerd and today she issues the following craft challenge to all crafters, lovers, and lovers of craft out there: 

By 6pm 8pm CST tonight, February 14th, create an artistic interpretation of e.e. cummings "i carry your heart with me" (click on the link to find the full text of this poem). 

Tweet a photo of your doodle, illustration, creative photo, yarn art, pasta necklace, or any other original craft project; make sure you at reply @etsydallas so we see it.

The winner will be selected by an algorithm that takes into consideration such things as: use of poem, interpretation of the poem, random phases of the moon, how much do you make Jenni and her friends smile when viewing the picture, and possibly a random number generator.   (If you don't tweet, email jenni20designs at att dot net with your submission.)

The prize will be your choice of $15 gift card to retailer of your choice: Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, or Target--three mass-market establishments that Jenni loves and frequents, and, since she is donating the prize, these are the choices she names for you. 

Show us the love, people!

Jenni and all the Etsy Dallas crew
