1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #120 - What the World Needs Now - Entries Due Oct 2 - Oct 8 on: September 05, 2017 02:12:06 PM
Craft Challenge #120 - What the World Needs Now - Entries Due Oct 2 - Oct 8

This month, we're focusing on the spirit of love & kindness!  Your challenge is to craft something to gift or donate to someone else.  Maybe you will craft a gift for a friend or loved one?  Maybe will you craft something to donate to someone in need?  Maybe you'll just craft something to drop anonymously somewhere (painted rock, random act of kindness, etc.)?  The choice is yours! Smiley

In your entry post, be sure to tell us who will receive your handmade gift or how you will pass it along to an anonymous receiver! Smiley

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Sep 5 - Oct 8, 2017) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 2 - Oct 8, 2017. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 2, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 9 - 15.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our November 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.
  • 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.

Prizes:

At the end, we'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
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Your project can use any number of flip flops you desire as long as the flip flop is the main material and/or star of the show.  Use one!  Use two hundred!  It's totally up to you! Smiley  Your project just must originate from at least one 1 traditional flip flop, though.

What will you create this month?  Maybe some of these amazing Craftsters will inspire you!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Floating House Numbers on: June 04, 2017 05:21:27 PM
Pretty sure they put those house numbers up in 1969 when the house was built. Cheesy  We plucked them off when we repainted this spring.  Finally got around to putting the new ones together.  Scrap wood, stain and hangers from the garage + floating numbers.  Easy peasy.

That's a bit better! Smiley







7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Pantry Update on: May 25, 2017 09:50:10 AM


We're listing our home for sale in a couple of weeks, so of course it's time to finish all of those annoying little projects that have accumulated over the years.  Apparently we couldn't take a couple hours to paint in the 15 years we lived here. Cheesy  It's one of those, "I should have done that years ago!" moments because it made such a drastic difference.

I used plain old garage floor paint in battleship grey.  It's great for high traffic and we had some left from another project.

Poor unloved, dingy floor.


They always say it's "premium one coat paint!"  They lie.  It was already an improvement, though.


baby.sweets4ever2.0 was very helpful in guarding the area.


Gave the walls a lovely scrubbing with vinegar and water, and repainted the baseboards white, too.  Easy peasy.  I was this close to stenciling the floor, too, but mr.sweets4ever reminded me we're moving and I'm just going crazy at this point. Cheesy

We're bringing back one of our most popular craft challenges -- SWAP & SHARE!

This month, you won't be crafting 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, but people forget to post them on the project boards.  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!

When the challenge is complete, we'll tag and move all of the projects to their proper category boards. Smiley

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 (Apr 7 - Apr 14) 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 April 7, 2017, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Apr 7 - Apr 14 11:59:59 PDT 2017.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Apr 15 - 23, 2017.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our May 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, I'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!
