It's that time again - Inktoberfest!

Post by sherelm »

Update! Please all thank Kathy (Yankeegirl) for adding more prizes and co-hosting this with me! What a fun person she is, I texted with her and since we live very close together we are soon going to meet up! Thanks Kathy!



inktoberfest again!  SEE UPDATE BELOW FOR MORE CHANCES TO WIN AND LONGER TIME TO PARTICIPATE!  AGAIN - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ALL OF THEM, OR MORE THAN ONE!!

Here's your daily prompts and how we'll do it this year!

Rules
1) must be a new layout, card, project
2) you may work backwards to catch up, but you cannot post before the day it matches on the calendar. 3) one entry per date (number)
4) you will receive one entry for each day you do. At the end I'll put your name in the pot however many times you did an entry. Then I'll use Random.org (I don't think the wheel will accommodate as many names as we'll have)
5) winner will receive a $10 gift card from ACOT. I reserve the right to increase the gift card amount if someone does them all, like was done prior!

Just have fun. You simply look at the date on the prompt chart and do whatever inspires you for that day from the prompt.

So your chart is in the gallery, I'll add it here later today.. and pm me any questions! First day, October 1, you may start posting in this post!

Hurray! These are always so hard, but really push us to get the creative juices flowing!

1. There is a crystal in the flower center.

3. Vessel - I took some liberty with this one. Hope you agree that my baby carriage is a (sort of) vessel! It carries, not like a ship on the ocean, however.

This is interesting. A d since you included cards as acceptable which is mostly what I do these days, I think I may play along.

I say yes for my side of combining, but you may want to check with the other hostess if it's OK. This is not a monthly challenge, it's just for October!

Ladies, you can do one or two or all of them! The first year I did it I think I had a blast and only did 2 or 3. Should we keep this open a week after the 31st? You vote, matters not to me!

I think anything made from any ACOT product that they do or may sell is fine! I don't care if you crochet something! It's all for using our supplies, getting things done, and inspiring each other while having fun!

Just thought of a question. Am I interpreting this correctly? We can't post a project BEFORE the calendar date - meaning "Knot" can't be added to the gallery until the 4th of Oct. or there after.

That would be great!  I'm still trying to catch up on things from the beginning of the month.  :)

CORRECT.  And the reason is this:  I had gals in the past saying they didn't participate after seeing others in that category - threw their ideas off.  So after the date passed, then it's fair game for everyone.  Make sense??
