Congratulations to the Craftmas contest winner

The creativity of our readers never ceases to amaze us. The sheer volume of incredibly artistic and beautiful holiday crafts entered into the PennySaverUSA.com and MOGASA Craftmas contest was a testament to just how much talent is possessed by the PennySaverUSA community.craftmas-contest-winner

The only downside to having so many fantastic submissions is that it made it so difficult on the judges to pick a winner. It was a long, arduous process, but in the end the judges came to a unanimous decision.

Without any further ado, it’s time to announce the Craftmas champion – Sheila and Laura R.! They created an adorable miniature Christmas scene complete with stockings, tree, fireplace, sofa, pets, wreath, cookies and, of course, gifts.

While Sheila and Laura R. took home the cash prize, the judges did want to at least give an honorable mention to three other contestants, whose crafts you can see on the image to the right below the winner’s craft:

  • Nancy L.
  • Veronica F.
  • Tricia F.

Please visit the PennySaverUSA Facebook gallery to see all the entries, or click on the image to the right.

If you didn’t win this PennySaverUSA.com contest, we will be launching a new one next week, so please come back to the blog to get the details.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Final chance to enter the Craftmas online contest

Twas the eve before Craftmas eve and Penny the Pig’s face was filled with glee … PennySaverUSA’s online contest had so many incredible entries for him to see!

The quality of the submissions has truly made the PennySaverUSA staff proud and in awe of the amazing talent displayed by our readers.

Visit the PennySaverUSA Facebook page to see all the entries.

So far, over 150 entries have been collected and the task of picking the winner will be extremely difficult. But we only expect the job of the judges to get harder over the next two days. That’s because the Craftmas online contest doesn’t end until Dec. 29!

Yep, you heard right, you have until Dec. 29 to submit a photo of your holiday craft. The prize for the winner is $250 – unless you have downloaded our free mobile garage sale app MOGASA on your iPhone or Android. If you are a MOGASA user, you will receive a $300 cash prize.

With the competition so tough right now, your best bet is to make a very unique holiday craft. Not to say that the multitude of wreaths, snowmen and gingerbread houses we’ve received aren’t awesome, because they are, but the more original the idea, the more it will stand out.

Don’t forget to post your seasonal craft photo on the PennySaverUSA Facebook wall and view all the entries on the PennySaverUSA Facebook page photos tab.

Enter the Craftmas online contest for a chance to win a cash prize

An amazing 2011 slate of PennySaverUSA.com online contests is coming to a close, but not without one last incredible online contest.

PennySaverUSA and MOGASA are pleased to present the Craftmas Contest!

craftmas contest

Win up to $300 by entering our Craftmas Contest.

All you have to do is show us your holiday spirit by sending us a photo of a seasonal craft you’ve created before December 29, 2011, and enter it through our online contest form.

Submissions will be scrutinized by a panel of PennySaverUSA judges (don’t worry, we’re not Grinches), and one winning entry will be chosen and announced on Friday, Dec. 30.

The winner will take home a $300 cash prize if they have downloaded our free mobile garage sale app MOGASA for iPhone or Android and $250 if they haven’t. That should help alleviate those bills coming in around the New Year!

Our previous two online contests were among the most successful in PennySaverUSA.com history and we hope to build that momentum with our Craftmas Contest!

We encourage all participants to also post their seasonal craft on the PennySaverUSA or MOGASA Facebook wall and provide a short description of what it took to make the craft.

Alright, enough yapping from us, you’ve got work to do, creating that seasonal craft masterpiece.

Good luck!
