I am jumping on the band wagon and hoping to grab the tail of someone elses star. March is officially Indie Wedding Month. Along with VintageIndie and Eco-Chic Weddings I am throwing a small party in March, but my party involves another fun art contest. Tell your friends!
Prize(s): $100 Gift Certificate from Charming Sam - http://www.charmingsam.com/ .
$25.00 Gift Certificate from 5th Avenue Bath Co - http://5thavenuebathco.com/
$25.00 Gift Certificate to the store of your choice at Marmalade Pink - http://www.marmaladepink.com/
How to Win: Keeping with the theme of Indie Wedding and Eco-chic your entry must be a wedding favor. An item that can be given to guests in thanks for attending the wedding of the lovely couple. Your wedding favor can be anything BUT it must be made from recycled materials.
Recycled doesn't necessarily mean digging around in the trash for an old coke can (unless that is what you want to do). Instead recycled can also mean vintage, antique, refurbished and altered. This must be an original piece of art, assemblage, etc. done by you and owned by you. Please do not submit anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to see and I reserve the right to reject any entrant at my sole discretion.

Which ever piece of work has the most votes by March 26, 2008 at 11:59pm, PST will be considered the winner.
