Totally Green Contest/Totally Green Crafts

The Totally Green Craft Contest is in full swing and we already have quite a few very awesome entries!  With a prize package worth over $350, it is certainly worth going over the Totally Green Crafts and checking it out!  Deadline for entries is September 30, so be sure to get your entry in soon!  The prize package will be awarded to one person on October 12, decided by reader votes.

I want to showcase some of the amazing sponsors that donated prizes to our contest.  So each week during the contest, I’m going to show you a few details of their shops.  These folks do prime work, so be sure to check out their stores and see what else they have to offer!

The Whimsy, by Janice of Kirksville, MO, specializes in beautiful wire wrapped jewelry using Czech glass.  Currently, her most popular designs are her Mother’s Necklace with children’s birthstones in it and her Remembrance Necklace.  Janice is offering this beautiful sterling silver wire-wrapped Czech glass teardrop hanging from an 18″ sterling silver chain.  This single teardrop pendant is refined enough for a professional wardrobe, but simple enough to wear every day.  A $27.00 value.

The Whimsy carries lots of beautiful jewelry, perfect for gift giving, especially if you want to give something in birthstone colors!


Everyday Peacocks

Kam, the proprieter and artist at Everyday Peacocks, has offered an amazing work from her upcoming fall collection This beautiful Shawl pin is made from high quality Copper, Yellow Brass, Bronze, and Sterling Silver filled Wire.  Features a large Aqua Swarovski crystal accent alongside Verdite and Smoky Quartz stones.  This collection is inspired by the warm beauty of nature during this vibrantly colorful seasonal change. Kam created this brand to offer an alternative to boring gray knitting needles, and plain plastic rings.  “Because yarn should be a guilty pleasure, not a dirty secret…” She wanted to offer a completely decadent knitting experience, in public or at home, so that every woman can say they feel like a peacock everyday!  This prize is valued at $37.00.

Kam has some beautiful knitting accessories available on her site.  Be sure to check them out and remember her when Christmas gifts are needed!
