Like secrets AND presents? Join Re-Artcrossing's Secret Santa Event
Secret Santa EventHello all!
As I stated in a previous journal, this year the Secret Santa event that I have hosted in the past will be hosted by the wonderful new group Re-Artcrossing that Vivacia18 and I have been working on getting up and running!
We're excited to host the event as a group and to be able to promote the group in doing so, but that does not mean you have to be a member in order to participate (although we hope you'll consider it! :la:).
On to the rules and such!
How It Works
Participants will send Re-Artcrossing a note with various information about what they might like to receive for their gift (called a profile, more later), as well as their address.
This will happen between now and November 21, 2014.
After November 21st we will draw names at random and send a note to each participant with the profile of their Secret Santa as well as their Secret Santa's address and an ArtID.
(Why the ArtID? Basically it helps us to

Like to bake? Join Still-Life-Stills Monthly Bake Off!
Monthly Bake Off! The monthly Bake Off! is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes.

This month the theme is 'Bread.' You can interpret this how you wish! I certainly didn't bake these rolls from scratch but used a packet mix (cheating but oh so tasty!) and got a little creative with how I arranged them. It would be good to include the recipe in your commets, or a link to the recipe if you took inspiration from elsewhere. It will help with regards to the prizing criteria listed below too...
:bulletblack: - Entries must follow the rules of Still Life Photography - no body parts!
:bulletblack: - One entry per person please!
:bulletblack: - Entries must be your own work.
:bulletblack: - Entries must have minimal photo-manipulation
:bulletblack: - Stick to the theme but interpret it how you wish!

They'll accept Artisan Crafts>Culinary entries!

Dragons contest - updateUpdate
We have gotten more entries for the contest as well as some new prizes. You have over a month more to craft your entries and we are so looking forward to seeing them.
We'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that entries have to be made for this contest.  Also to ask you not to use our contest as an advertising platform. If you want to put your piece up for sale, that is your right, but please don't advertise the fact through the entry. Use your journal or other means instead. Thank you

Thanks for accepting me.  I feel like I'm just learning to walk around here. Stumbling and tripping but having a lot of fun.

Ok, 2 things:
1) The chat was very lonely today. <.<
2) Just curious, but, can anyone craft something as a prize for a contest? Does it have to be specific? I'm just curious, because I'm here half sleeping and have no idea why I thought of that. >.<

The chat was only on Saturday...so if you were there on Sunday, that's why no one was there.
Yes, anyone can make a prize to donate. And donors can still enter the contests. :D
