    Are you an accomplished or budding artist, a dabbler, a crafter, a doodler? Do you enjoy painting, sketching,
    working with clay, pastels, stamping, doing paper art, or any other art medium? Then we have the perfect contest for you.

    The concept is simple. Create a piece of art that is Christmas oriented. Get out your Popsicle sticks, paint brushes,
    clay, crayons, paper mache, or anything you want to work with. There are no limits on size or how much it cost to make.
    Don't sell yourself short if you don't have a lot of experience. Have fun and let your creative juices flow.
    And it works like most of our other contests. Unfortunately it involves a lot of little details. Read them before entering, please.

    Here are some rules and outlines.Click image for larger version  Name:	calendar.jpg Views:	1 Size:	73.7 KB ID:	185296

    I am not an artist at all, but I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Good luck!
    Check out my Christmas reviews.

      Hmmm...I need something to get the creative juices flowing but the time frame is really bad for me. Not committing yet, but not saying no either.

      Question about the newspaper for the photo. Our local paper is published weekly but I'm assuming that as long as I can get the date of the paper In the shot it would be OK?

      looks like I need to get posting too!

        Lizzy, nice to see you on here. I seriously hope you will be able to join the contest. Don't worry about the newspaper. Anything with a current date is fine. Even a weekly or monthly publication.

            Hi bethene, so nice to see you. I know you will come up with something brilliant. Or at least wonderful. hehe. I am glad you are taking part.

            I guess I will play too. I am having trouble deciding which of my arts and craft boxes to drag out.

            Keep in mind that "Christmas" can also mean simply winter. So your theme doesn't have to include Santa or angels or decorated trees, etc. Well, I guess where I live that would be a picture of palm trees and kids playing outside in their shorts and T-shirt. Not very Christmasy I guess. But I think you get the gist.

                I have started to start mine three times and keep getting interrupted. Maybe I can start tonight.

                Anyone else participating or started on their project? You're going to make it easy for Bethene and I to walk away with the prizes. LOL?
