Craft Challenge #25 - Represent Your Hometown - Due Mar 1 - Mar 5 2008

03/13/08 - The winner has been chosen!

CONGRATS to krtek for her amazing entry entitled,
"Hamburg Ahoi!"



Click below to see it:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231541.0


Check out the blog about this challenge:
http://craftster.org/blog/?p=162

Update 03/06/08 Time to vote!  Scroll up for the poll...
Browse all of the challenge entries here...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=385.0


3/1/08 - The folder for entries has been created!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=385.0


Here's your chance to pay homage to where you currently live or where you hail from. What special characteristics is your town known for? Are you lucky enough to claim fame to the world's largest ball of twine? What do you think of when you consider what your town represents, what you're most proud of, what you think is unique about your town? You can interpret this challenge in any way you see fit using any crafting techniques you choose!

You should pick the city/town that you grew up in or where you currently live. You can choose the nearest city or the overall region, but picking your town -- even if it's small -- might just be more interesting and challenging!

(Thank you to gammerus for this great Challenge theme idea!)

Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of Mar 1 - Mar 5 2008. No sooner. No later. On Mar 1 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Mar 6 - Mar 12 2008.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project. (Although your entry can have multiple components to it.)

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original and has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, then just give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

One issue of The Sampler!



The Sampler is a super fun marketing & promotional tool for indie businesses. Each month, independent crafters, artists, shops, zines and record labels who run web-based businesses send samples and promotional materials to a contribution pool. All the samples are photographed, posted to the site and then are portioned out, put in little packages and sent off to Sampler Subscribers, other Sampler Contributors and members of the Media all over the world!


(Note that this image is just one example. You won't get this exact assortment.)

The Sampler is a blast to get in the mail. You never know what kinds of fabulous goodies you'll get. I've gotten it a few times and it's like Christmas a dozen times over every time.

Check out what sweets4ever got in her sampler's over the past few months!

And, in fact, a fabulous tie-in to this Craft Challenge is that The Sampler has started to do city-specific samplers where all of the items are made by crafters in a particular city! Here are some that are coming this year:
Boston, MA - February
Columbus, OH - April
Atlanta, GA  - June
Chicago, IL - September
Pittsburgh, PA - November

I am still new so still kinda' confused on challenges. Couple of questions:
- I can do anything that represents the town I live in? Knit,quilt, or I could even cake decorate?

I am really thinking of doing this project because my town was one that was devestated by the So Cal fires last year, gotta' show some town pride.
