The Art of Home Free Emagazine- Jacquelynne Steves

We will be having another photo contest for the Spring Issue of The Art of Home Free Emagazine! Last time, I asked you to show me your photos of your favorite thing about summer.This time, I’d like you to send me photos of your current projects and works in progress. These could of course be sewing or quilting projects, but it could also be a project around the house or garden as well, maybe a yummy meal you’ve prepared, or a birthday cake you made for someone special. The theme and hashtag for this contest is #TheArtOfCreativity2015.  The winning photo will be featured in the Spring Issue of The Art of Home, AND I will do a little feature about you, like your favorite hobbies, pets, stuff like that!

And – there will be a prize – because that just makes it all the more fun! My esteemed panel of judges and I (aka me and my daughters!) will choose our favorite photo. Domestic and international entries are eligible! The prize will be fat quarters and patterns- yay!!

Your photos don’t have to be super-artsy or professional! Just show me your current creative project!
