I am on my way to do a highlight for the contest! I will host one the second week of June of that's not too far in advance? Mini canvas on easel as the prize.
My song is Candle in the Wind by Elton John. 1973 song written in honor of Marilyn Monroe.

Hi all! I don't know if I'm just speaking for myself, but I did read at the top that about 300 people have viewed this but only a handful are participating. Personally I'd like to participate but I have no idea how to put the Highlights together or any of the other directions. Just saying.... :(

Keep in mind 300 views to a thread doesn't necessarily mean 300 people.  I've come back to read this thread every time I see there's a new response, so several of those views are just me.

That aside, if you look at the top of this screen, smack in the middle of the purple bar across the top is the link to "Highlights."  Click on that and a couple inches down toward the right will be a green button for "create."  After that, it's pretty easy.

I recommend having 2 windows open, one to create your highlight & the other to go through the shops.  Then just click on items you want to add to your highlight, copy the url, and paste them into the create highlight screen.  Give it a title, description, and keywords.  Once you've got all you want, go down to the bottom right of the screen & click the green button that says "Add Highlights."

And you're done!

She was first to enter - got a lead and never looked back
Congrats to Larissa for winning our first Handmade Highlight contest!

Big thanks to all 13 people who entered. Not only does this help our vendors and Handmade Artists as a site with extra exposure and something else for Google to crawl but it was fun...almost hysterically so a time or two!Larissa, please have a peek at my shop and let me know if you see a fabric you like (I think I still have most in stock - maybe give me 2 choices) or you can give me an idea as to your favorite color or style and I'll get to work on your mini book.
Also, if you are hosting the next round have at it - rules and theme are your call (I will add FB likes didn't work out too well, everyone had the same "like" count, something is wonky there ??? )

Woohoo!!! 

OK, I'm trying to decide between the fabrics on Chucktown Ballet, Squared Up, Nebula, and In the Abstract.  Are any of those out of stock to help me narrow it down?

I wanted this SO badly, you have no idea.

And it's a good brightening to an afternoon that REALLY needed it.

Oh, and yeah, initially each Highlight had its own number of "likes" and then it all mushed together so we all had the same number.  Also, when I liked some of them, the link that went to my FB page was a general link to the Highlights all together, not any specific one.

So I guess we'll just do comments?

Nebula I think is out - Abstract might not look that good on a mini. There. Now you're down to two!

Agreed, just comments might be best
