Creativebug's *I Made This* Contest.......

If you're like me, and you'll walk across town barefoot to collect something you want that is being given away for free, you're probably going to be pretty excited about this.  If you've been wanting to spend some time this fall buckling down with a cup of warm tea and making all of your holiday gifts, here's your chance. Classes and materials included!  No bare-feet or waking required!
