Christmas Cardinal, eenie3@comcast.net  "I wanted to embrace light in my holiday décor, in a way that would remind me that my loved ones are still present in spirit."   Our Creator's Studio community loved this take on the magic and significance of light during the holidays.

FA LA LA Light, SeaBeeMarket. "For this challenge I created a cascading glass ornament chandelier. The chandelier is equipped with a light I pulled from an old hanging lamp. The paints and finishes of the glass ornaments were selected due to their reflective nature. My goal was to fully capture the glittery beauty of lights during the holiday season." Fellow creators fell head over heels for this stunning holiday centerpiece (and that precious little DIY assistant;)

Light Your Community as You Gather Together, LeCultivateur.  "As I thought about the theme “let there be light”, I thought about a world where everyone offers light and love to one another. If we each seek those around us, friends, family, teachers, coaches, those in our schools, in our neighborhoods, in our communities, all those that we come in contact with, and share our light and love, the world would be such a better place."  Community members concurred: these beautiful sentiments found a home in this festive and charming holiday village.

 

Congratulations to our winners ... and a huge shout out to every one of our participants. It's our members' DIY skills, creativity, and innovation that make these challenges engaging and inspiring.
