FOJ Challenge Update - The First 3 Donations Have Arrived!

Just wanted to give a shout out to those whose donations have already

Susan of sent over an adorable votive decorated in great detail with a polymer clay dragon, leaves, etc. Words don’t do it justice, so here’s a picture of the piece:

It’s truly wonderful crafts(wo)manship!

Kris of has sent over a beautiful handmade corsage with so much flare! It’s sure to be an eye catcher in the basket:

Last, but not least, Lori of donated an awesome eco-friendly bag! The silk front with its vibrant design is from a vintage kimono dress, the yellow velvet is from a vintage dress and the orange zipper is from shorts! This is truly adorable and I’ll be jealous of whoever wins it, FOR SURE!

At this rate I am certain that this basket is going to get a lot of ticket
bids in the Chinese auction. It's sure to be a HOT item!

You can view other shots of these items by visiting the EtsyNJ
flickr group

Check back for more donated pieces in the upcoming weeks!

WOW! These donations are all so amazing! I better step up my game so I don't look like a slouch. I really feel like this could be some great positive publicity for the group and Etsy!
