Countdown to 2012: The Top 10 Trendiest Challenge-Winning Projects in the Moxie Fab World

My job here in the Moxie Fab World is to inspire you on a daily basis. If at any given time I show you something in a blog post that urges you to move from your computer to your craft table, then I've accomplished one of my main goals. Thing is, all y'all inspire me on a daily basis as well. Whether it's a kind word or a witty comment or a supportive greeting or a knock-down kick-in-the-pants drool-worthy project, I am always inspired by you.

And today, I've taken some time to narrow down the Top 10 Trendiest Challenge-Winning Projects in the Moxie Fab World for 2011. These projects are the best of the best, friends, and while it was oh-so-difficult to narrow the field, I'm pretty stoked about my choices. Check it:









Lindsay Amrhein from the 365 Cards Week Challenges

Aren't these projects oh-so-trendilicious and inspiring, friends? Now's your chance to vote for your three favies in the poll box beneath my picture in the upper right hand sidebar of this blog (after I've had time to wake up and add it, that is!) THEN leave me a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, January 1 and I'll draw one lucky to win something moxie fab from my moxie magical prize drawer.

I'll post the results of all your favies on a special post on New Year's Day!

Counting it down,

~Cath

I give up on this voting. I try and vote and the voting boxes under Cath's photo is for the previous days vote, or when I comment it gets posted to a different project OR I can't find the voting boxes at all on the site. Don't know if it is my computer or your program, but it is just not working for me. :((

Jennifer H said...

All the projects are amazing but my favorite is Courtney's card.
