Any item is fine, those are just the categories that are currently in need of prizes.  Things that are related to those types of crafts are great, but not at all necessary!

 :)

I'd be happy to donate something -- I make bags mostly, most of which would be a good size for a knitting and/or crochet project!  Should we contact the mods in charge directly to let them know?


Title: Re: Donations wanted for category challenge prizes - Great cheap advertising!
Post by: jungrrl on January 11, 2008 06:45:03 AM
Yes, if you could contact them directly that would be great!  They each keep their own list of donors.  :)

Again looking for a prize donation for a polymer clay challenge.  Preferably something NOT made of polymer clay.  Something that could be used in polymer clay projects, jewelry, bags, gift certificates to Etsy shops, artwork, almost anything.

Free advertising!  All I need is a banner and a promise that you will send the prize to the winner.  I will put a link to your shop in my signature and any posts related to the challenge.  In big letters, too! ;D

I have not goods but a service I'm willing to offer as a prize should anyone want anything a little different.

I do tea leaf and card readings.  I've read for myself, friends and family most of my life, and started selling readings online last year when I hit a financial rough spot.  I'm in the (slow!) process of setting up a site of my own to sell through, and am happy to give free readings to get my name out there. 

I haven't got a full 'inventory' online yet, but this is the sort of thing I can offer:

Quick little 7-card tarot readings
Readings using speciality decks, like Doreen Virtue's angel-themed cards
Tea leaf readings
Full tarot spreads

I know it's a off the crafting theme, but thought I might as well offer.  Also, since I can deliver the results by email or PM, there's no shipping of customs fees to worry about.  :)

I actually make quite a few different things that I'd be more than willing to donate (if you guys/gals are still interested)

I make great patchwork bags (shopping/tote style) all from reclaimed fabrics, mirrors and bottle openers with reclaimed fabrics or maps, origami filled ornaments, fused glass pendants, reclaimed cup cozies and pincushions, along with handspun yarn... all which I sell through craft shows, bazaars, in stores, etc.

I am interested in donating something from my shop. Should the items match the category or can I contact any moderator with my items in mind? I dabble in clothing accessories and jewelry and various other trinkets typically of a polymer clay nature. I wanted to contact jungrrl but it looks like she is no longer a mod when I went to PM her. Any other mods on here who can direct me? Link to my shop in my signature so you all can see what I can donate to the cause.
