Although it's the start of the holiday busy season, you may start feeling like you've exhausted all beady endeavors and need a bit of a challenge. Something fun to boost your creativity. Why not host a blog challenge?
My new friend Kelly of Silver Parrot just hosted a Bug inspired bracelet challenge and I got to participate and it was JUST the thing I needed to spark some inspiration!
She showed 5 colorful pictures of different bug species, and the challenge was to pick one and create a bracelet in the same color palette. She had readers blog their photos and leave links to their posts in her blog post. Then Kelly went back to her blog and showed off each of the submissions. She is picking a random winner, and that winner will receive some bead goodness and a couple of cool beading books!
It's an easy way to also increase your blog reader participation. I guarantee you'll have a blast doing it.
Join us tomorrow for a holiday shopping event with the Art Bead Scene editors!
