Woohoo! Highlight Contest #7 Is ON!
« on: July 29, 2012, 08:48:59 AM »

HHC#7 Here's the deal:
Participants will make a Handmade Highlight according to a selected theme, it will go a week, the winner will be the one with the most comments wins. EASY!

This is for a mini but if there are 20 or more participants I will up it to a full size book ;D

*You can comment on your own Highlight as many times as you feel the need to but only one will count towards your total.

_______________________________________________________________________
Theme: Make a highlight using a MOVIE or TV SHOW as your theme.
 
Please put "HHC #7 and the name of the movie or show" as your highlight title


****The winner will get a 200 page 4.5" x 5.5" mini book in your choice of fabric made by me perfect for tucking away in your purse, backpack or glove box.****

EXAMPLE:

_______________________________________________________________________


This will go from July 29-Aug 5 at 6pm
Once this one is finished it would be awesome if someone else would host the next. All you'd need to do is pick a theme and provide a small prize to the winner. It could be anything, not even necessarily something you make, it could be a small set of note cards, pretty beads etc. small but nice, something you'd like to receive and won't cost much to send.


Directions on making a highlight can be found here: http://handmadeartists.com/forum/index.php/topic,7173.msg85092.html#msg85092 Any questions just ask. Post your entry links here and go drum up some comments!


Tip: it might help to spend a few minutes messaging the artists you include in your entry - they may be able to help boost your count by commenting and sharing! ;)

Great theme!  I won't compete 'cause I win your awesome book last time, but I'll definitely do one to the theme tonight!  I have the movie picked already.

I can't seem to lure folks here to comment, let alone participate in the fun. I always take time to message everyone I feature in a highlight, some never answer or comment. I think the core group are always the same, always very active.
It seems weird to set up shop & run away. What happens if they sell something? I haven't sold anything yet so I don't know, do they get an email to their personal account?

Yes they receive order notification emails. As far as getting people to participate, I can't answer that Nancy. It is the age old issue, 10% of the people do a 100% of the work. This isn't really work, but some may think it is. Who knows, if you figure it out , I'd love to know.
