MOST OF THIS IS COPIED FROM AN EARLIER POST BUT NOT MANY MEMBERS LOOKED AT IT...(BAD TIMING) AND THERE'S A NEW POLL INCLUDED AT THE BOTTOM THAT I'D LOVE TO SEE YOU ANSWER...
Something new is coming to Artists In Blogland and I’m here to invite YOU to participate.
Joni Nickrent, of Pop Art Minis, made a suggestion that we have a monthly challenge based on a different theme each month.
I think this is a GReat idea, so even though Joni initiated it, I’m going to instigate it!!!
You may have been to other web sites that offer challenges such as this one…so I’m wondering…if you have any ideas to tweak OUR challenge…that will make it just a bit more exciting.
I’ve thought about asking our members to donate a gift to award to a monthly winner…who will win by popular vote.
It would need to be something lightweight and small so it won’t cost a fortune to mail across the world – but that would be up to the giver.
What do you think?!?
Pretty please with a cherry on top…share your thoughts and ideas with us!!!
THIS IS THE PART WHERE THE POLL COMES IN...
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE A MONTHLY WINNER...OR NOT?!?
AND IF THERE IS A MONTHLY WINNER...SHOULD WE AWARD A GIFT?
AND IF WE AWARD A GIFT...ARE YOU WILLING TO DONATE SOMETHING AND MAIL IT TO THE WINNER AND/OR FIND A SPONSOR THAT WOULD DO IT?
PLEASE ANSWER THE POLL SOON BECAUSE JANUARY 2K12 IS UPON US!!!
HAPPY, HAPPY, WONDERFUL, ART-FILLED, JOYFUL NEW YEAR TO ALL...
Stay tuned for the January theme.
Create Your Life,
Do you think we should have a winner for our monthly theme challenge?
Please leave your name and info about prize if you are willing to be a part of that. Thanks!
Would you be willing to provide a prize for a giveaway or monthly theme challenge winner?
I voted Yes and Yes to test it out, I could do a prize.ReplyDelete
I am willing to donate a prize too. Challenges are fun and they engage your readers!ReplyDelete
I would be happy to donate a small painting, have to send it all the way from Australia. Would love to participate in challenges, once the kids are back at school.ReplyDelete
I'm willing to donate a prize!ReplyDelete
I don't have the money to ship anything across the world, but I can definitely do a prize if it's something the winner can download -- like some of my favorite recipes in an email attachment. I make all kinds of delicious things!ReplyDelete
I think it's a great idea and yes...I will donate an item.ReplyDelete
Same as Saturday Sequins; like the challenge idea.ReplyDelete
I really like the idea of a challenge, but am less motivated by the idea of a prize, simply being labelled as the 'winner' or being acknowledged for taking part would make me happy xxReplyDelete
I said yes to both, and would be willing to donate an ATC for a prize. Easy to post.ReplyDelete
Oh, heaventy sakes, I am so daft I don't quite know what you're talking about. Do you mean that we all make something and that we comment and that the thing we made is what we send out? It's not a swap? Is it a swap with only one recipient? Is it not a swap but a vote? Is there a ballot? do we just vote from the commentors? When does the voting start? Or, do I have to join? I can't remember if I joined. If I joined and I'm supposed to make something, I haven't.ReplyDelete
In other news, I haven't blurfed in a long time and so am not up to date on anything. So I may not even be qualified. But thanks for asking!
I'm going to go vote, now.
p.s. I didn't vote for 'stop bothering me!' yay!ReplyDelete
i like the idea and could send a copy of postcard or atc or even a paper mache earring or beads but not every month...ReplyDelete
Yes, I think just being acknowledged is plenty, and a monthly theme should be motivational by itself. :)ReplyDelete
ATCs are a great idea. They are small, portable and collectable. I would be willing to donate a small canvas painting or cloth scupt.ReplyDelete
I would love to be a part of this. I would give away a small painting to the winner.ReplyDelete
The idea sounds great, I think we could give weekly awards or badges from AIB to the winner... say 'artist of the month' or something?ReplyDelete
I'd be willing to donate a prize. A small painting or paper-fabric item. Just let me know at least a month in advance, what month I'm to donate. Also about the monthly challenge. I don't know where to enter or do we enter on Sweet Saturdays. Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.comReplyDelete
