Jennifer Garant Studios Summer Contest

Big Summer Challenge Starts Today !

[More Prizes added! Revised minutes ago to give prizes for each of the 5 legs as well as 3 surprise prizes for the top 3 overall scores after all 5 legs are tallied up]

Contests are fun for everyone. Lots of humor, lots of interaction, a bit of competitive spirit, actually tons of competitive spirit and fun prizes for the winners. We just finished a warm up contest solving a jigsaw of one of my paintings and now we're ready for the Big Summer Challenge!

The Egg Leg

The Big Summer Challenge starts today with Leg 1 of 5. Each leg of the contest you can be awarded points so play all the legs if you can. The first of 5 legs in this challenge will be to be creative with 1 to 12 eggs. We'll call this the Egg Leg. Boil them, decorate them, dress them, or fry them or poach them, arrange them in a creative or funny manner. Make them look like celebrities, or whoever or whatever, put them in funny positions. No real guidelines beyond that, you can use any materials you want, markers, paints, dyes, alfalfa sprouts, whatever. Just have fun and be original. The eggs will be judged based on creativity and/or humor plus originality. Between 1 and 20 points will be awarded on this leg. This is going to be eggselent!

Start submitting pictures of your entries today to Egg Leg ends midnight this Sunday (PST). Be creative! Have Fun! After all 5 legs, points will be tallied and the top 3 point totals will win a genuine Jennifer Garant prize that will remain a mystery until the end of the contest.

In the meanwhile, each leg we will also be awarding a prize to the winner and runner up.  Here are the prizes for the top two point scorers in the Egg Leg contest.  In the case of a tie, we will draw the winner from a hat. Good luck!

I Love Designing Fabrics!

Over the past few months, I have had the wonderful opportunity to design fabrics with Timeless Treasures Fabrics, Inc. It is something I always wanted to do and now its happening, with a launch this week of 20 of my designs at the Spring Quilt Market. My first designs are "Bad Hair Day", "Nothing to Wear", "Combs & Foams", and "BathTubbies", with coordinates to go with all of them. I got my samples a week ago and it was thrilling to see what started out as small paintings of girls with "bad hair", girls with "nothing to wear", "combs & foams", and "bathtubbies" made into fabrics. My next set will have cats n dogs, and my signature chefs.
Now I just need to buy a sewing machine.
