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!

I love this challenge. I've been very much in the mode of random art abandonment, and this is a perfect excuse to do more.

Love this idea!

... I'm going away a pet sculpture on IG (rafflebetween people who donate to a shelter in TX to help with Harvey aftermath) - would that count?
(I will start working on it next week)

I think that is totally okay!  Since it involves donations to somewhere and not a profit for yourself, I consider it a gift! Smiley

This looks like fun! I have been stalking this thread for awhile, and I think this may be the first project that I actually enter.
