I haven’t had a chance to plug my Etsy team recently.  I am part of the Etsy Beadweavers.  Every month, the team runs a challenge.  In January, we open the challenge to only people who are new to the team or who have not won a challenge beforehand.  We call this the “Rising Star” challenge. 

I won a challenge two years ago… In 2014 I was terribly absent from the Team – I hope to rectify this in 2015.

Here are the entries for this month’s “Rising Star” challenge!  The voting poll will be available to any voter from today through January 15th, so head on over to the team’s blog at


then select your choice in the blog poll on the right sidebar beginning on the 9th.
