Adding up the points, we ended up in a tie for first place! Both of these really fit the spirit of the Summer Doldrums Contest!
The Rainy Day Fun Insect Window Shade, by Some Art Fabric
This is a great project, recycling pages of an old book into a whimsical and interesting window shade. We loved that she got all the kids involved too! Per one of our judges: “I just love how simple this is!! Very easy to make and do!” She gives all the instructions and details on how to create this on her site.
Tying for first was:
The Memory Mobile by Hello, I’m Sally, of Pollywog’s Cakewalk.
This is a beautiful mobile, and the sentiments behind it are fabulous. Per a judge: “I like this idea of highlighting summer memories. ” It really captures the essence of summer!
Third place goes to the adorable little narwhal by JuliePeach
Judge’s comment: “I love the narwhal — very original.”
And an honorable mention to the cool freeform coral from Rachel at Cornflower Blue
