The Pom Pom Menagerie Contest

I realize I haven't been back here in awhile, so I thought I'd pop in and say hello.  To update you, the package described in the last post arrived safe and sound, and as far as I know, with no signs of an elephant having roughed it up.

Speaking of elephants, I want to introduce you to my latest creation, a purple elephant! She is made with dark purple pom poms, felt, and a lot of magical secrets.  Hey, an artist has to keep some mystery in her work, you know. ;)

I hope you love her.  Here is the link so you can check out other pictures of this one, and read the description in detail.  If you'd like to see it in other colors, please comment on this post with color suggestions, or send me a convo through the Etsy messaging system!

Your suggestions are always taken seriously, even if you are asking for a Woolly Mammoth (which I can totally make!).

Speaking of suggestions, I posed this question on my Facebook fanpage yesterday, but in case you missed it, I'm also asking it here:
What kind of animal would you like me to make next?

So far, I've made every color of poodle, including a lime green one which would be good for decorating for St. Patrick's Day (coming up soon, folks), white mice in Victorian outfits, and a red spotted mushroom. Okay, that last one wasn't an animal, but it sure is trendy!  As the list demonstrates, I tend to work mostly in pom poms and felt.

I've given it some thought, and decided to make this fun. Let's make it a contest!

  • If you've got a suggestion, please like my Facebook page and leave me a comment.  If I use your suggestion, I will message you for your address, and mail it to you.
  • You can also enter by following me on Twitter, and tweeting your ideas by tagging @CandyApplCrafts and #MenagerieContest. I will check to see if you are following me before making a selection.
  • Entries in the comments section here on the blog will not be counted. Entries by email will also not be counted.
  • This contest only runs until 10 p.m. US Central Time, March 3, 2012. Get your suggestions in before the deadline to be considered.  After I get all the entries, I will sort through them and make a selection.
  • The winning idea will be announced on March 10, 2012. I will make the project and announce it here on my blog, and on Facebook and Twitter as well.
  • Only one entry per day on Facebook and Twitter.  You can make one entry on each of these two platforms in one day, but two or more entries in one day on either site will disqualify you. I don't want to get in trouble with either social media site for spamming.
  • If the winner does not contact me with his or her address by March 13, that winner will be disqualified. I will then select another idea, make it, and announce a new winner by March 17, 2012.
  • If no one makes a suggestion, I will be sad, but I'll get over it. If only one person makes a suggestion, that person will win by default.
  • No purchase is necessary to win. Buying from me is certainly welcome, but it will not increase your chances of winning this contest.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
