  1. Carol says:

    Good Morning, Craftsy! Can’t wait to enter the contest but wanted to check something first about the instructions above. Did you really mean for us to submit the title using the Thanksgiving reference, as follows? :)

    “STEP 4: Title your project “Thanksgiving Crafts Contest 2013″ (IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PUT “Winter Wonderland Contest 2013″ IN THE TITLE OF YOUR PROJECT. That way, we will know it’s a submission for the contest!)”

    Or should I use the Winter Wonderland title in all places?

    Many thanks in advance,


    1. Karen Kelty says:

      Oops! Thank you for catching that, Carol! Please title it “Winter Wonderland Contest 2013″ :) We can’t wait to see what you create!

      1. Carol says:

        Thanks! :)

  2. ellen says:

    for the xmas contest can you submit pictures of more than one project or can you only have pics of one project?

    1. Karen Kelty says:

      The more the merrier, Ellen :) Submit as many as you’d like!

  3. Johanna says:

    Can I enter an item I sell in my shop?

    1. Karen Kelty says:

      Hi Johanna!

      Yep, you can definitely enter a project from your shop, but you’ll have to upload it in our Projects section for it to be included in the contest entries. I hope this helps!

      1. Johanna says:

        I will. Thank you.

  4. CakeGirl says:

    Sounds like fun, can’t wait to enter! I see the note about December 18, but when are the entries due? Thanks in advance! :)

  5. Donna says:

    I submitted a entry to the winter wonderland contest. How do I get to see all the other entries? I’ve tried searching and no luck. Is there a way to see only those entries?


    1. Karen Kelty says:

      Hi Donna!
