I created a line of candle embellishments inspired by my home state of Louisiana. The fleur de lis is not only a symbol of the state, but of our World Champion New Orleans Saints football team! In French, fleur de lis literally means "lily flower". On 9 July 2008, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law making the fleur-de-lis an official symbol of the state. Following Hurricane Katrina, the fleur-de-lis has been widely used in New Orleans as a symbol of grassroots support for New Orleans' recovery.

Mine is purple and gold stocking bunting. I'm from Baton Rouge, which is where LSU is located, so I wanted to make something festive for the holidays that shows spirit for my alma mater. :)
Here is my entry, inspired by Wisconsin! As you may know, Wisconsin is America's Dairyland. We like our cheese and frozen custard here (and beer, but that's not dairy!). So I made a frozen custard cozy for pints of custard or ice cream. To keep your hands from freezing while you eat. I made one with cow print, since cows make milk.
