In preparation for Challenge 2 (down the road just a bit), what would you guys like to see as prizes? I am going to post on the board asking for challenge prize donations, but is there something specific I should ask for? I know it doesn't have to be B&B stuff every time, do people want craft books, jewelry, sewn items??? Maybe try to get a few small things and throw them together? Let me know your ideas!

Also, what is a good time frame? I probably won't want to start another challenge for several weeks at least.

The theme for the next challenge will be....oh yeah, like I'm gonna make it that easy on ya!   Grin  Actually the theme will be the runner-up from the theme voting previously. Keep posting your ideas for themes and for Challenge #3 we'll either do another vote or keep going and pick the 3rd theme from the last round of voting.

I think the Craftster t-shirts are cute (probably easy to get donated, too), but other than that I think you had the right idea of it with the first challenge. Packaging stuff is good, make a weird bottle of FO? (like Fresh Baked Bread from BB, that stuff is so weird but awesome, too) Maybe a pigment sampler? (those things are great and last longer than you would expect!)

I'd think a good time frame would be around April-May, that way it gives a few months between them. Smiley

Ooh good ideas! Any suggestions to ask other craftsters for? Apparently there is a board to ask for donations from craftsters, and then they get a little free advertising. I'll start making a list!

Nymeria has some good ideas.  Would definitely love to see some unusual items as prizes. 
Can't wait till the next challenge starts!!

Challenge 2 is here! Going off of the voting for themes we had a while back, our theme is 'Eco-Friendly/All Natural." You may interpret that theme any way you see fit, whether it's product, packaging, etc, that fits under Bath and Beauty.

The rules:

1. Post your entry, including pictures and an explanation of why/how you created your item.

2. Post the week of April 20-April 26 May 3. All entries must be posted by April 26, 9 pm Pacific time.

3. There are no restrictions on who may enter, but each person may only post one entry. The entry may consist of a set, but it needs to be one cohesive entry.

4. If you are using an existing recipe you did not create, please alter it at least 25%, and you must credit the source!

5. Post your entry by starting a new topic within this folder.

6. Your entry can not be something you have posted before.

The prize:

From suggestions on a different thread I am offering one item (under $25) from any of Craftster's Online Stores found here:

http://www.craftster.org/shop/

I was going to only offer from the "Big Cartel" but I want to add the option for the sites where you have your own words printed on demand, since there aren't any B&B items specifically in the other shop (although I know most of us do crossover crafts lol!)
