Collaboration Call Out

Back in January, I mentioned that I’d like to collaborate more with fellow bloggers and crafters this year. I’ve talked to a lot of people lately about future team-ups here on the blog. Mostly it’s a lot of brainstorming and bouncing ideas off each other but there are some plans in the works and posts scheduled. I’d like to reach out to you to see if you’d like to take part in two collaborations I’m planning.

The first is a word association style photo challenge. The word I’ve chosen is ‘stitch.’ Basically, you interpret and capture the word ‘stitch’ in a single photo. Photo and art challenges have always helped keep my creativity from getting stale. Since finishing my 52 Weeks project, I feel like a fresh challenge is in order. Anyone can take part. Simply send me an email with your submission (make sure it’s JPG format and at least 1000 pixels wide and no mosaics or animated GIFs, please.) Also include a link to your blog/site so I can post it with your photo. I will be accepting submissions until February 26th and be choosing four (or maybe more?) to share here on the blog. If it goes well and you all enjoy it, similar photo challenges might become a feature here.

Then in April, I’m hoping to do a Spring Giveaway, teaming up with a lot of makers and bloggers to offer a great prize package for one of you lucky readers. It’s still a ways off so it’s very much in the preliminary stages but if you want to join in by contributing something handmade-related, feel free to contact me! (Again, if all goes well, I might aim for more seasonal group giveaways in the future.)

Hope those of you in the paths of the recent snow storms have dug yourselves out! We due to get even more tomorrow morning!
