Okey Dokey... Up for a different kind of contest????
If you were tuned in.. for the last couple of blogs you know that I have a charm of the month club. I thought it would be fun for one charm each month be inspired by one of you. First a background story..
The wonderful Cuban food collection in this blog today, was inspired by Joanna, an amazing woman who collaborated with me in the creation of these charms. She sent me lots of amazing photos, of food that I never even tasted before.
I am very pleased by the results, and thought it how horrible it would have been if Joanna had never asked me if I could make them. So it hit me today why not make a fun contest where each month there will be a winner.
Here is how it will work. Every month I make at least 3 new charms, for the charm of the month club. I will choose the topic. To enter all you do is make suggestions for what foods go along with that topic, in the comment section.
I will post the topic around the 15th every month, for a full month out. The end date for the contest each month will be the following 15th (when the new topic begins).
So here goes
March is National Noodle Month: who knew right?
The topic is noodles :) Italian themed dishes, as long as they are Italian you can branch outside of noodle dishes.
All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this blog with your idea.
The prize will be the charm you inspired :)
1: I want a multiple winners throughout the year, so if you won one month.. take a break for one month.
2: Read through the comments to make sure your dish hasn't already been suggested.
3: One suggestion per day max.. This allows you 28-30 entries but will allow many people to play :)
That is it!!
Sucking up may help... I really do depend on photos of real food when making my tiny dishes. The comment section doesn't allow for photos. I will provide a link to my etsy store. If you hit "convo" you can load up to 3 pictures of your own, or off the net.
I will google search images from your suggestions, but if you find a really great photo I would love to see it.
A little suggestion.... I am already thinking of basic Lasagna, ravioli and Spaghetti so those suggestions wouldn't win, but if you have different variations on these dishes you can enter them .. Be creative and have fun! I am interested in something that is connected to our theme... but a little bit out of the ordinary, special or clever.
P.S. I know you all will have great suggestion.s.. If I choose to do more than one, for the month or regular stock for my store you both will get your inspired charms as a thank you gift.
Have fun, I am really excited and hope you play with me.
