It’s CHALLENGE time!

Hello fellow bloggers, clever creatives, makers & shakers!!!

I would like to invite you all to join me in our new, fun monthly challenge called “Made It”!

What is this all about you ask? Well, I’m glad you did….let me explain.

My lovely friend and fellow Capetonian, Kerry over at My Lovebumps  (well, except she has now hopped over the pond to the UK sniff sniff) and some of her lovely blogging pals have been running the PinAddicts challenge for a while now and it’s been a rip-roaring success. So, with her blessing, I have decided to host a similar version of the challenge because I think that there are some super awesome blogs/bloggers out there who I know will be up for it, and will be a great way for us all to interact and share new ideas!

Whoohooo! As we will be the first to host this, here is the prize that’s up for grabs – hope you like it!

Our little giveaway includes 3 balls of wool from Vinnis Colours-1 x 100% Bamboo,1 x100% Cotton, 1 x 70%Cotton/30%Bamboo blend, 12 x funky buttons and 1 x Surprise!!!!!

Here goes!

All you have to do is submit something you have made this month – whether it be a be a woolly hat, a delicious cupcake, a tutu, playdough…ANYTHING at all!!! (pssst, look on Pinterest for inspiration)

So, here is how it works…..

  • Look for something awesome to make (best part), remember it can be anything at all

  • MAKE IT! take pics along the way if you are going to be doing a tutorial so we can all see how it’s done

  • Blog it, post it, whatever – just get it online! (if you don’t have a blog, check out the note below ***)

    Don’t forget to post a link to give credit to where the original idea came from

  • Submit the URL/link of your superb creation on the host’s blog via “inlinkz” (check out the little froggy at the foot of this post…or click here!

  • Grab the code from the host’s blog so you can insert it into your post for quicker access to all submissions (NB insert the code in the HTML section)

  • FINALLY, check in often and VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!

 ***   if you don’t have a blog, send your entry to the host and they will submit for you – or, just start your own blog!!!  ***

The link will be open until the 31st July and VOTING will be open from the 21st JULY  until closing so hurry up and get craftin’!

You can keep checking in and VOTE for your favourites (it won’t a difference as to who gets the prize, but the maker will be super grateful and love the encouragement).

The winner will be drawn randomly and a prize will be whizzed their way, anywhere in the world!!!

Now for the best part….the host blog with draw the winner and donate the prize and then will pass on the honour of “the Host Crown” to a fellow blogger (just make sure that the new host is happy to carry the torch) and it will start all over again!

So come on….let’s do this – can’t wait to see all your creations!

  1. Awesome my friend! Well done for taking this fantastic plunge! Can I enter my PinAddicts challenge tomorrow? 🙂 Love the idea of the Host Princess! Good Luck and much love from across the pond xxx

  2. Yay how exciting!!! I’ve entered 🙂 Although I’m not sure if its worked properly, it broke after it asked me to tweet…. Is there any other steps after that?
    Ooooh I’m so excited, and I’m the first person to enter!! 😀

      • YAY!!!! You did it….I ADORE HERBERT, well done! The link worked perfectly, you can even add this link into your post (make sure that you change to HTML first them paste the link)

        So, yes if you win you get to wear the crown and be the next host – but only if you want to 🙂 I will make sure that the next host has everything they need to set it up. I have kept our prize small so as not to put anyone under pressure – it can be anything at all too!

        Thank you so much for entering!!! I am loving it already! I am going to “blog it” now!!! YAY!!

  3. Hi Maryanne, not sure if you’ve see my reply to your comment on my blog so I’m posting here too. I’ll join in. Not entirely sure how it all works but no doubt it will be revealed to me as we go along – I’m a bit slow technology wise some times 😉 A month is a good long time to get at least one thing made…hopefully!!! And sometimes we need and incentive/deadline to get us going.

    • HAHAH, you and me both! I am busy with mine at the moment and am already thinking about the deadline heehee. Don’t worry, it’s easier than it seems. You just have to make something (you can look on Pinterest for ideas) and it can be anything at all – woolly, foody, papery, etc. Then do a post on it, showing how you made it and where you got the idea from and the publish it. Copy the link and pop over to my post about it and click on the FROG – this will take you to a new page and at the very bottom you will see a button to add your link – click on it and paste your link. Voila!!! And staying on the clownish theme for your dress up, what about Marcel Marceau the famous mine artist? Either way, I’m sure your son will look fantastic whatever you go for!!!
