  4. Lion Woods Says:

    Here’s My Entry!

  5. Kat Says:

    This is probably a dumb question, but I’ll ask anyway. Contest rules says only one entry for the contest, then part of the rules says (You may submit one entry for each *Ornament category* in this contest.) but it doesn’t give you the categories! Does anyone know? There is what 7 styles of ornaments. Maybe they mean that you can enter a design of each style??? Just curious : )

    Thank you for another contest! Here’s my entry.

  14. Christina Says:

    It really is the most wonderful time of the year1 Good luck to everyone, here is my design.

  15. BeckCalli Says:

    Here is my entry:
    This is the 2nd design in our “Jinglz” Christmas line, characters that were conceived as I assisted my son in making his Christmas cards for cub scouts many years ago. Each character has a jingle bell somewhere in their design, and for this design, the lamb carries the bell. The front of the ornament has a very cute and wide-eyed Baby J, with the Jingle Bell Lamb on the reverse as well as the “Jinglz” logo. The star shape of the ornament compliments the star above Baby J’s head.

    Best wishes to everyone and their entries—and yes, thank you Zazzle for putting out another contest;)

  16. Christina Says:

    mine isn’t showing up, hmmm. How long does it take to show up? If I post again I will get the boot, right?

  18. Jerry Says:

    I decided to create a new subject for the design instead of using an old one for this contest. I thought that I was done doing holiday themed stuff but I had one more in me. Check it out.

  19. michael beer Says:

    Here’s our entry for the ornament contest, thanks for the opportunity.

  35. Ryan Says:

    This is my first time entering a Zazzle content! I was confused about the conflict in the rules as well. Can we only submit ONE entry period, or can we submit an entry per ornament category? Would hate to get disqualified because of a typo in the rules!

    Lots of great ornaments, good luck everyone!

  44. Karen aka KKHPhotos Says:

    I hope to get more ornaments made soon but for now here’s my contest entry. It’s my “Feed My Lambs” ornament [Taken from John 21:15, I thought it went well with the photo.] The ornament features a photo of a beautiful stain glass window in my church building. I love the bright colors and think it will look great on any Christmas tree.
    Good luck to everyone entering the contest!

    What a neat idea for a contest! I just entered my ornament:


  47. Zindy S. D. Nielsen Says:

    I love this idea, great contest. I just really think it’s too bad you are not including entries from artists not living in the US. In general I am missing a lot of your awesome deals just because I live in Europe-Denmark. I love many of your products and have used you a lot but I do think you could do better for us Europeans once in a while.

  48. Tanya Bond Says:

    THis is so HUGELY UNFAIR!!!! zzzZzzazzle, why no internetional zazzlers allowed???

      I feel like a total idiot trying to post a link to my ornament and ending up with all these posts, where are the instructions on what to do when it says waiting for you comment to modify, I thought I had to modify it, there by all the stupid postings. Never posted anything before may never again.

    Hey this was such a fun little contest. I finally got to use my “Naughty” and “Nice” reversible idea on something!

    or here…

  69. Jean Weiner Says:

    What a unique contest! I never tire of painting beautiful birds. This year, my original watercolor painting, “Christmas Greetings 2010″ features 5 favorites; Black Capped Chickadee, Eastern Bluebird, Northern Flicker, and a male and female Northern Cardinal. Although the liklihood of finding all 5 of these birds perched in the same tree is very low, as an artist, I took the liberty to group them together in peaceful coexistence! Enjoy!

    Here is my entry:

  71. Nancy Brudigam Says:

    I have a siamese mix cat who I taught to sit up. I took her photo several times while she was sitting up and with my graphics softwear, created duplicates, put Santa hats on them, a book in their paws and viola!, you have 3 “kitten carolers” singing “jingle bells”.

    She really does sit up so the only graphics is the Santa hat, the book in her paws and the musical notes and text.

  72. Sher Magins Says:

    Designing the ornaments is fun. Having all the styles helps to fit different size images on them. I love Koalas and wanted to submit my favorite ornament here. Wishing you a Cuddly Koala Christmas Season!

  76. Rebecca Hamilton Says:

    Just entered my ornament- photo by Paul Bamford and design by me! I am the volunteer Zazzlemeister for the Andean Bear Foundation. Zazzle has been a fantastic way to increase awareness of the Andean Bear. Bubu, the Andean Bear’s many friends on Facebook have been proudly wearing Zazzle designs of all kinds. He has been spotted in the US, Canada, the UK, Ecuador, New Zealand, Australia and all over Europe!! This ornament will be posted for sale the day of Bubu’s release back into the wild- very soon shhhhhhh! His friends know the day is right around the corner and will be sad and glad at the same time!

    Hmmmmm, I posted my ornament yesterday along with the significance of the ornament. It was ‘awaiting moderation’ then it has disappeared. Wonder why? Just a nice post? I guess Zazzle has something against Andean Bears.
