Fall Team Challenge: Home Sweet Home

To spark a little creativity, the KNET team recently planned a design challenge. Our challenge was to create an item inspired by our hometown or state. We share those items, and a brief description, below, and you can join in the fun. You can vote for which entry you think is the most inpsired. Just select your choice over on the sidebar. And because we are a friendly little team, there is no real prize for the winner. Just that warm-fuzzy feeling :)
Voting has now closed. The winner is the cow print custard cozy from mary*mule designs!
Embellished Bayou:
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.


This Seams Nifty:
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.
