Etsy Mexicoteam Day of the Dead Contest

I was perusing the forums on Ravelry the other day and I came across an announcement for a contest being put on by Mexicoteam on Etsy. The contest involved searching through participating shops to find the Day of the Dead logo in a listing. I poked around the shops (finding a lot of great pieces in the process) and submitted my answers. Well, today I was told that I won! Very cool - I haven't won a contest in about 10 years!

Here are a couple of the talented artists I came across while looking through the mexicoteam shops. At The Cornfield Shop you can find beautiful baby carriers like this one, as well as sock monkeys, jewelry and more!

Norma from Cara Carmina sells absolutely gorgeous art dolls, cards and prints. I absolutely love this plush doll of hers - it's so quirky and cute and kinda spooky (in a really good way).

And here's what I chose as my prize - a set of cards from Cara Carmina featuring her Cyrano Dolls. It was a tough choice, since there were lots of great items available for me to choose from. I can't wait to see them!

I just wanted to let everyone know about the great artists of Etsy's Mexicoteam and thanks to all of you for putting on such a cool contest!
