But besides that, the New Year also comes with new ideas. I've had this thought running around in my head, and I hope you'll think it's a good idea too and want to help me make it great!
I'm starting a new monthly adventure/series/challenge (not to be confused with a contest/competition/link party) on my blog as a way to showcase some of the amazing talent that exists out there (yes, I mean you!) I thought it would be fun to pick a Secret Supply every month and have a few bloggers do their own take on it. Then at the end of the month I'll do a post sharing all the projects, including mine.
As an example, say I pick "lamp" for January. Each blogger who is assigned January will have to come up with their own lamp re-do and then they'll all get posted here.
I don't want to give anything away, but for some more examples, a future month's item might be Feathers, or Canvas Drop Cloth. Or maybe even a set of 3 supplies that have to be used together on the same project! And don't worry--I'm a pretty cheap crafter myself, so I won't be picking anything that's very expensive to work with.
So, who's with me? Does this sound like a fun idea? I hope so--and maybe it will force you to work with a supply or item that you wouldn't normally pick.
Each of the monthly projects and bloggers will be put in the new Make a Splash tab that I've added to my menu above. Grab a button from my sidebar for your blog if you want to help spread the word.
I'm hoping to get at least 3 to 5 bloggers to participate each month, though the number's flexible. If you're interested, or if you have any questions, please leave me a comment or click on the purple "Contact Me" button on the left side of my blog. Also, let me know if you have a preference for which month you participate.
A couple of rules that may be useful:
- You must complete a new project even if you've worked with the mystery item before.
- I would love for you to post your project on your own blog, but ask that you wait until the day that the group post goes up on my blog.
