Chocolate Box Contest Update

Just a reminder that the deadline for my decorated chocolate box contest is November 30, 2010. A winner will be announced on December 7th.

Here are the entries so far!

Batatter kicked things off with this impressive entry: chocolate box

Tattrldy jumped in with both feet and completed this adorable chocolate box: TTT with Chocolates

Not to be outdone, Karrianne submitted this winsome, fabric and tatting entry: Mini-chocolate box

Yavamoni submitted this fresh-as-spring entry via Intatters: decorated box

Val turned in this superb satchel: Chocolates

Fate is a Good Provider
There is a saying in French, "le hasard fait bien les choses," which can be translated as "fate is a good provider." Lady Fate tipped her hat to Sharon. Just look at her entry: It must have been fate.

O, Woe is She!
Georgia asked if she could submit her entry using an empty plastic celery bag, since her doctor has banned chocolate from her diet. Georgia, of course you can! (Fingers still crossed for this entertaining entry.)

In fact, I have half a mind to tat celery in protest of Georgia's plight. Or make a silly celery hat. Does anyone out there know of a block tatted celery bunch?  Martha?

This Just In!
Icelas made her own box because she ran out of Whitman's chocolate boxes.  New Bon Bon Box
(Now don't you wish you could be adopted?) ツ

Tattips' entry is truly a labor of love. Feminine, romantic and lacy: A Valentine chocolate box

Back to the Contest
Wow, y'all are really making this a tough choice. The boxes are all so brilliantly done.

(Honestly, if I were entering I would be more than a bit intimidated.) Did I say that out loud?  ツ

It is not too late to get your entry in!

Remember, 25 free balls of thread are waiting for 1 lucky winner!

But you've got to be in to win.

Good luck!

So if I glue my meger tatted rings to a chocolate box....

haha just kidding XP I wouldn't stand a chance! And you couldn't show me any special attention because then you'd be biased!

I have been watching blogs for chocolate boxes ever since you announced this contest. I'm amazed at how talented and innovative our fellow tatters are!

I'd love to enter the contest, but I have been completely unable to generate even one idea for a chocolate box. Now celery is a totally different story... ; )
