Canadian Banner Contest 2010

Some of our talented Oh Canada Team members have been hard at work, creating handmade treasures with distinctly Canadian themes. These creations will help decorate our team blog, and add a fresh look to greet our visitors. We want to say “We’re Handmade, and We’re Canadian!”

Oh Canada Team Banner Contest Entries



We have four beautiful entries to choose from. Each one will have a chance to become a part of our team banner for the remainder of 2010. But we need your help to choose who will go first!

Please have a look at each of the wonderful entries. Follow the links to learn more about each creation, and the artist’s inspiration, then vote for your favorite in the sidebar poll. Your vote will help us select which order to showcase these Canadian creations in! Each entry will spend 2 months in the top spot.

I'd say we're all winners!

Oh Canada Fingerless Mits is my vote. I already have a hat by this artisan and love it. The quality cannot be beat.

So torn ... the mitts are very Canadian flag coloring-wise, but the Ice Floe bracelet speaks to me too ... I'm going to go with the Ice Floe bracelet

(And I agree that the 4 who entered are all winners, I hang my head in shame for being such a slacker :) )

I love the flower of Canada pillow!

It's soft - not to "In Your Face".
