*TINY* Craft Challenge

by bosssanders on January 11, 2009 with no comments

Here’s the challenge for this week:


January 11-17:
Theme – “Tiny” – The only real guideline really would be the theme word itself..TINY. So, just make it tiny.

If you plan on doing it or have any questions, please be sure to leave a comment – and please feel free to play and accept the challenge! The more the merrier – these can be crafts you do solo or with your kids or WHATEVER, and you can use any supplies or mediums you want, pretty much.

Once you have your entry posted on your website or blog, just come back here and leave it in the mr. linky by using the exact html that will lead directly to it! —And, you can do this any day between the 11th and 17 (or 18th, if you need an extra day!)

I'd love it if you stalked me (subscribe to my RSS feed). Thanks for visiting!

Let’s Get Crafty… Episode 1

by bosssanders on January 2, 2009 with 1 comment

So it’s January, and I’ve decided to begin the Craft Challenge a little early since it’s the first one. The deadline date will remain the same, but I’m moving the start date up by 2 days (was January 4th), so you have plenty of time to craft! To read the introduction post, click here.

Here’s the theme/challenge:

January 2-10: Theme – “Envelopes” – You can use envelopes in this craft, construct a creative envelope, depict an envelope, etc. Use your imagination… (You ARE allowed to use other materials besides envelopes.)

It’s pretty basic and loose so you can use your own genius to spin this in countless ways, no matter what your “craft” is – and it doesn’t have to be conventional.

To participate, please just write a post BY January 10th (2009), and leave the direct URL to that post in the MR. Linky below.

Then, after Jan 10th, people will have free range to vote on their favorites. The prize? A pretty little graphic award (to be shown later) and complete bragging rights. (We’ll have bigger prizes as the contests progress, later on…) As an added bonus, you get to see all sorts of other creative geniuses online and check out their awesome ideas! If you want to be really awesome, go ahead and post a “how to” or tutorial with your submission on your site.

Want to participate but don’t have your own website or blog? No problemo! Just leave me a comment, letting me know and I’ll tell you how to submit it via email. I’ve got ya covered!

Okay…ready? Set. Go!

January 11-17: Theme – “Tiny” – The only real guideline really would be the theme word itself..TINY. So, just make it tiny.

Creative Geniuses (or something like that)

I’m starting this new thing coming January (although you can start now on the themes listed at the end), a challenge of sorts (are ya with me?):

Every week, for 52 weeks a “theme” will be posted and crafters will have an entire week (from Sunday to Saturday) to brainstorm and create their fabulous crafts. “Crafts” include paintings, photographs, drawings, fabric crafts, paper crafts, metal crafts, and everything in between. (If you’re unsure, just ask me.)

At the end of each week, an area will be created for the participants to add their links to their own blogs and websites of the craft they created and how they created it (photograph with instructions/tutorials). Of course, participants who don not own websites/blogs are also invited to join and may send me via email a photograph of what they made along with typed instructions, which I’ll post (giving them credit) on my own blog.

As we get prizes in, there will also be polls going up for visitors to vote on their favorite crafts. And, while I plan to run this for 52 weeks, participants are encouraged to join in as much or little as they’d like – whether it be only once, randomly as they have time or are inspired, or for the entire length. Participants also don’t have to sign up at the beginning of the week, so don’t feel bad if you planned to make something but then life happened and you couldn’t quite do it…you only sign up once the week is up and your project is finished.

Of course, this also means we’ll have tons of new and great crafts to try, as well. We can inspire each other to think in new ways and to see different materials in a whole new way. Heck, if all else fails, store your creations somewhere safe and you’ll have a head-start on Christmas for NEXT year! Ha!

Any questions? Email me and I’ll start a FAQ section for this.

COMING UP:

January 4-10: Theme – “Envelopes” – You can use envelopes in this craft, construct a creative envelope, depict an envelope, etc. Use your imagination… (You ARE allowed to use other materials besides envelopes.)

January 11-17:
Theme – “Tiny” – The only real guideline really would be the theme word itself..TINY. So, just make it tiny.

January 18-24: Theme – “New Year Resolutions” – Craft something that will either help you reach your New Year’s Resolutions or something that portrays them. Maybe you are wanting to get rid of the box of clothes in the attic to make room for something else, you could possibly use some of those pieces in this craft. Or, maybe you plan to get past some demons in your life, paint us your story.

January 25-31: Theme – “Important Dates” – January is the beginning of a new year, so make a cool calendar or use one to make something else. Or, use your own creative genius to capture the spirit of planning for a new year in an entirely different way!

***I’ve given you the themes for throughout January, so technically you have up to a month to work on some of them if you so choose. Feel free to work ahead, if you wish – just don’t forget to send it in once the theme comes due (more info on that later).
