The first HOST members' competition closed yesterday, 30 September 2008. Participants were asked to create an item - or items - for a Mother/baby contest, with a maximum of two entries per person to allow for baby boys and baby girls!
Participating members have all donated their competition entries to the HOST store and these have all now been listed for sale in a special new Mother/Baby contest category.
HOST members have a wide variety of craft skills, and this is certainly reflected in the range of items entered. Each of the entries is showcased below for you to view, or you can visit the HOST store to read about them in more detail.
We would like your help to choose our competition winner! Please make your choices for first, second, and third place, and vote by leaving your comments here on the blog, or convo us with your choices privately via the HOST store.
Voting will close at 12 noon - Etsy time - on Sunday 5 October 2008 and the winners will be announced here the same afternoon!
If you need a Mother/baby gift - or if you are tempted to do some early Christmas shopping - now is the perfect time to visit HOST, where your gift will go even further :)
