I enjoyed this contest so much that we are going to continue the fun. To be fair to the girls that already entered we will award a gift card tomorrow morning. BUT THAN to bring more laughs, giggles and trips down memory lane we are going to keep the competition open and have a vote off.
Here’s how it will work. Below are the entries from the ladies that have already posted. You can either vote on one of them OR submit your own entry. Basically we are looking for the most ridiculous, silly, tacky, wayward craft you have made. All who enter will want to send their friends, family, coworkers, neighbors and any one else you can think of to www.poppyseedprojects.blogspot.com to vote for your entry.

I use to have those wreath like things with the raffia bow and dried flowers... AKA dust collector ;)
The Allen Family -
Haha. Love the pictures. I wish I had kept one of mine I got rid of to share. :)
I made a fabric stocking (that doesn't really open) with painted, wooden decorations attached to it.
So I stitched "Families are Forever" and put it in a double frame but I couldn't find a recent family photo in time to give it to my mom for Mother's Day so I drew a picture of our family. This was back in high school, mind you, 15 or so year ago, and my mom still has that picture up! She refuses to change it to a photo. I'll try to get a picture of it to share with you!
The Archuleta’s -
My grandma was big into crafting when I was growing up. In jr high and High School she had me decorate bars of soap with ribbon, scrapbook paper, jewels, paint ect. She would display them in her bathroom in a basket. They were sooo ugly! I wish I had a picture of them.
Raffia memories: Oh my favorite raffia memory to laugh about, was a wooden doll. I am sure she was at least 3 ft tall with raffia hair which touched the floor. I would actually curl her hair with a curling iron to keep her looking gorgeous. Ha Ha. What a doll, pretty funny some of the things we thought were cute.
Nate and Danette -
The cheesiest craft I made was a house out of popsicle sticks it was way ugly went straight to trash.
I took a big piece of white fabric and stuck it through a hoop, then painted a face on it to make a ghost. :)
I cut gingerbread men out of brown paper bags and attached to a long strand of raffia and torn fabric pieces.

Here are some pictures for the blog contest. It is a bunny with a wooden head, hands and feet that are painted and then glued into a totally eighties inspired peach flower dress complete with lace, (the bunny is not stuffed at all so it is just the head, hands and feet glued to material :) There is also a candle holder complete with a peach color candle, adorned with, again, eighties inspired lace and bow (the lace coincidently matches the lace on the bunny).
LET THE VOTING BEGIN!
