Team Challenge and New Treasury

OK so we're going to try this and see how it goes. We're going to do a team challenge! You can choose to participate if you want. It's meant to be fun for those who are itching for something more to do. So the challenge starts today and ends August 31st. One whole month!

The theme for this challenge is "Who are you?". The idea is to make something that tells each member what you're all about. What is your "thing" that makes crocheting fun. Make an item that represents you and your shop. This is meant to be a way to get to know each other better and see the different talents amongst our group. This is meant to be easy since everyone is constantly making items for there shop.

The item needs to be a new item that has been listed between today's date and August 31st. Once you have made and picked the item you think best represent "Who you are" then please post the link in the forum for everyone to see or convo me the link. Please use the team tag for this entries.

Each person who enters an item will be featured on the blog. One person will be posted per day if we have multiple entries. As the items are submitted they will be posted. For those who do participate have a little something written up about why you make what you do and what inspires you. This is kind of a show and tell. LOL! The challenge starts NOW!

On another note please check out this awesome treasury made of team items created by pipistrellecrochet: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c52840bb52b8eef9f7d3e3f/crochet-dreamers

  4. I'm in, and I know exactly what I'm going to make, I just have to finish a couple other projects first (a few "orders" from friends)!

    And Deb...I don't know what kind of yarn you use/like, but AC Moore has a pretty good sale on Red Heart yarn right now. 2 skeins for $5.

    Also, FYI for everyone...if you spend as much as I do on yarn/crafts each month, you should sign up for AC Moore's (free) rewards program. Earn 1 point for every $1 you spend, 200 points gets you a $10 gift card, and they are always sending me coupons for bonus points! I got 50 bonus points yesterday just for buying $10 worth of yarn...enough to earn me my 2nd $10 gift card! You can sign up on their website or in the store.

  7. Can we post multiple items? Also, is there a "winner" or a "prize" for this particular challenge or is it just for fun? I'm just curious. :-)

  8. It is for one item that best describes you and your shop and what you are all about. No physical prize. Everyone is a winner and one person a day as they are submitted will be featured on this team blog. I'm looking to get a team grant soon to be able to have prizes for the next challenge. This is more of a meet and greet challenge.
