Won't You Join Us?

After making my candy corn tote, other candy corn projects kept coming into my mind, using the white, orange and yellow color scheme. Amandajean and I exchanged numerous emails this weekend with great excitement of all the things we could make. (Go check out her candy corn quilt!)

One thing led to another and we decided to host a Candy Corn Contest. We are extending an invitation to you.

Don't sew? That's fine. You can use any medium your little heart desires. Paint. Buttons. Scrapbook paper. Yarn. Photographs. Fabric. Polymer clay. Beads. Your imagination is the limit. You can enter one project or twenty. The more the merrier.

There will be a flickr group to add your photos. But, that's not all. There will be prizes at the end. Candy corn related prizes. (Isn't that incentive enough?)

The contest will run October 1st - October 30th. You can join/enter projects anytime prior to the 30th. We will pick a winner (or winners) on Halloween, October 31st.

Won't you join us? Let us know if you're in.

of course you know I'm in (way over my head, that is!) your pillow is crazy cute. your patchwork is awesome. I Love the bits of chenille in the mix.

Okay, that pillow is adorable! My husband is a huge candy corn fan, and I can't stand it! Every year he buys a big bag that sits and sits in our cupboard (he usually eats a few pieces, as he's very health conscious) then eventually I throw it away a few months later. I love your idea. I'm swamped with projects for the moment, so I won't be able to participate, but I'll see if my kids are interested. It certainly won't be as pretty as your pillow though!

Fun! My head is now spinning with candy corn ideas.

Jessica said...

I sssoo want to participate but I just took my machine in for a service yesterday :(

I have a whole line of commissioned quilts ready to go when I get my machine back, but I'll see if I can squeeze in some candy corn love in between! :)

Diane said...

Sounds like fun. Can I let you know in a day or two? I happen to be swamped right now, but I'll see if I can fit it in since I have about 20 ideas for this contest.

I love the idea of a candy corn contest, I'll have to put my thinking cap on.

Your pillow is very cute. Where do you get the chenille from? I've looked for it and never seem to find any

CJ said...

BUMBLE BEANS said...

what a fun idea. I love the candy corn bag, quilt etc. (i think I am the only person who actually can't stand the taste of candy corn... oh well. If I can come up with something I'll let you know!

Diane said...

Great idea! How do you manage to outdo yourself?? You always amaze us. I've made your candy corn tote and blogged it today...

nikko said...

What a great idea! I'll have to think of something. :o)

Little Munchkins said...

That sounds like a fun thing to do...but I don't know much about Candy Corn and we don't do Halloween here :(

utmommy said...

Too cute! I wish I could do all those cute fun sewing projects like you.

I was so happy to find your blog via amandajean. When I saw the picture of your kids I had to write because we have five kids, 4 boys and one girl. We also have a Jackson and a Mason! They are a lot older than yours though. We live in Massachusetts. I wonder if you get the same kind of surprise/shocked reactions when you tell people how many kids you have like we do! Around here it is quite the anomoly. Your candy corn projects are really cute. I love the tote.
Take care,
Elisabeth

Kris said...

Okay, I want to do this too! I don't know why, because I have never seen a piece of candy corn in my life! (What does it taste like? Or are we just going for the look? Lol!)

Melanie said...

Beautiful cushion Lera. I do like all these Autumnal colours.

rob said...

This is great! I featured it on my Candy Corn blog

Jennifer said...

Wooo...finally got the comment thing to load.

I'm in..I just got mine finished today. I've been working on the neverending quilt...and it was completed this afternoon. Then I was all for working on my beauty. I'll post a pic on the group and my blog whenever I jump on my computer.

Gail :) said...

Oh Lera once again you have inspired me! I couldn't sleep at all last night thinking of how to make what was in my head! Well I did it today. It is one Candy Corn I like! I am joining the contest now. I have it posted on my blog, but as soon as I figure Flickr out I will put it there too :)
