Sign Up Here To Host A Handmade Highlight Contest!
« on: May 17, 2012, 02:16:54 PM »
If you are interested in hosting a Handmade Highlight Contest (HHC) please list the week you want to host in this thread. This is just a quick bit of weekly fun and a great way to get to know others here, promote other shops and Handmade Artists site in general.


All you have to do to host is come up with a theme for the week and provide a small prize for the winner. All rules are up to the host.

Great!! Thanks, Debbi. You'll start a new thread with your HHC once the current one is over

That'd be great, Sandi! Unless Debbi has changed her mind about hosting this week?

Has she been around?  Maybe she forgot & you should try PMing her so it goes to her email.

I can roll with it!  Just let me know.  Debbi is reliable though, and she was at chat last Thursday.  My guess is she's good to go!

I am a bit overwhelmed lately with shows, and my art is being received very well locally and I keep getting invited to do more things(great fun). I am missing out on the Highlight fun, but I want I would love to host one, what day of the week do we start? Tues? I can take the week of June12th. I don't have a theme yet, but will get back to you.

I am going to list a few art prints of my original work today so I would like to give an art print maybe a choice of 3? If you think anyone would like that?
Let me know thanks!
Nancy

I'd be willing to host again with another mini book as the prize but only if I can get enough players. Do know that this is not only good for the winner but good for the vendors and HA in general.
It's loads of fun and all you have to do is make a Highlight in the theme I choose and rustle up some comments from friends, family, Facebook, twitter etc., player with the most comments after the week wins. Easy!
Who's in? I can start it on Monday if we get enough interest...later if not.

Sorry, I'm competitive.  But I also won a book already, so if I did the contest, it'd just be for the fun of fitting a Highlight into the theme, not for the prize.

I tell you what, if we can get 20 people to play (16 to go!) I'll make the prize a full size book (8.5x5.5) otherwise it will remain a mini  ^-^
