Craft Challenge #86 - Swap & Share - Entries Due May 1 - May 8

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... mama24boyz!



Her entry titled, “Lana Portrait Ghan” is an absolutely amazing portrait afghan! Check out the winning entry here.



It's Time to Vote!
Scroll up to see the voting poll.
You must be logged in to vote.  One vote per member.
If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.



It's Time to Enter!
The entry period is May 1 - 8, 2013.
To post your entry, please start a new topic for it on this board.  Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley
Entries must be posted by May 8 11:59:59 PDT 2013.
If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.



This month, we're putting a pretty major (awesome!) twist on the Craft Challenge!  This month, you don't actually have to craft anything right now!  For this craft challenge, we want to encourage you to share a project that you've never posted a thread for previously.  The crafty kicker -- it has to be a project that you've sent in a Craftster Craft Swap.  Over time, so many amazing projects get buried in the Swap Galleries.  Let's expose them!! Smiley

Your project can be any medium, technique, size or shape you desire, as long as you sent it for an organized Craftster Craft Swap! Smiley  The project must not already have its own Completed Project thread.  It's totally okay if it was already shared within a Swap Gallery, though!

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Post your project on the entry board from (May 1 - 8, 2013) only.  Your project must be something you crafted and sent for an organized Craftster Craft Swap.  It cannot be something made for a personal swap or swap on another site.  It can be a project you sent as an angel package for a Craftster Craft Swap, though. Smiley
  • In your entry thread, share the title and link to the swap for which you crafted the project.  Feel free to give a little shout out to your partner in your thread, too! Smiley
  • Share at least one photo of your project, but more are always encouraged.  If you are entering your project with photos your recipient captured, please privately contact and ask for their permission to use their photos.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • On May 1 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of May 1 to May 8 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from May 9 - May 16 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our June newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, 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, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Oooh, this is PERFECT! So many of the things I've crafted lately have been for swaps, and I still haven't got around to posting them in their own threads. The real challenge will be deciding which *one* project to submit! Grin

Ugg, I know exactly what I want to post but can't find a picture of it anywhere.  My partner wasn't able to post in the original gallery so I posted for her but the picture was on my own website, which had very limited space, and I erased it.   Who knew 6 years later I'd want that picture!!

I do have another idea of what I could post but one of the 'rules' is causing me trouble and I need some clarification - It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, 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, please give credit to that project  I crocheted something for my partner using a pattern I found through another Craftster member.  Can I post that project as long as I say who made the original pattern?

Gah, bummer!  Did you check the website Wayback Machine?  Sometimes we're able to revive photos from there.

Oh, yes!  Absolutely.  As long as you mention credit to that member, all is well!

Just tried it and it didn't work but that's okay, I'll go with my crochet project instead.
