Join Us at the ABS Carnival

It's a new year and the Art Bead Scene has a new idea. There's alot of talent among our readers which comes through loud and clear in your insightful and thoughtful comments and beautiful jewelry you submit to the ABS Flickr group. So, the ABS wants to kick it up a notch and invite you to join us for a monthly ABS blog carnival!

What is a Blog Carnival? A Blog Carnival is a collection of blog posts on a given theme. If you'd like to take a look at one, I hosted a Lampwork Carnival whose theme was,"Sculpture on a Mandrel" back in 2006.

Look like fun? Want to know more?

The Art Bead Scene will host a blog carnival on the second Wednesday of each month beginning in February.

You're thinking, "Great! What do I need to do as a writer for the ABS Blog Carnival?"

Sign up!

Write a blog post on a secret theme. (Themes will be announced to those who sign up.)

Submit your article in advance to me (ABS editor Cindy Gimbrone.)

Publish your article on your own blog on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

That's it!

Blog Carnivals are a great way for our readers to write for ABS and show off their own blogs! Sound like fun? If you'd like to join the ABS Blog Carnival, then send an email to Cindy at and let me know you'd like a ticket to ride!

(Thanks to for the fair photos.)
