The Wandering Wildflower.....

Ya’ll have heard of the ‘Traveling Gnome’, right? Well, we thought it would be fun to have our own ‘traveling gnome’ fun, except ours doesn’t include a gnome, nor does it include traveling. Huh?? You ask? How can we have our own traveling gnome without the travel or the gnome? :what: Here’s how….

A wonderfully talented and crafty superstar, created these adorable and chic headbands. (Her name is Heather, and here is a link to her terrific blog, http://veryheatherly.blogspot.com/:clap:

We thought it would be fun to send our headbands around the GLOBE, for our crafty friends to share. This is our very own ‘Wandering Wildflower’.
(haha, get it?? Traveling = wandering, gnome = wildflower?? Oh well…sounded good. ) ::D:

Here’s the idea….

We will be creating 3 lists of ladies who are interested in taking a picture of the headband on themselves, their daughter, their sister, their dog (ok…for those who get a little freaked about the dog thing – they can be thrown in the washer/dryer and made fresh again ). Whoever or whatever would be adorable wearing the headband.

It would be great to get pictures of you wearing your headband in front a local famous ‘destination’ or ‘hot spot’ or just sharing an awesome picture of you wearing the headband. :yes2:

A Flickr site will be created for everyone to upload their picture(s) and share with the group.

As an added bonus, if you create a layout, card, or project, using your photo, and share/post the project on ‘The Creative Soup’, you will have a chance to win an awesome RAK/Giveaway. :happydance:

Details:
1. If you are interested in participating in the ‘Wandering Wildflower’, send an email to me (Tina) at adogslife13@hotmail.com. I will be creating 3 lists of names from the willing participants. Please take note, that you will be required to send the headband to the next amazing person on the list, so please be prepared to take your picture, and send it on.

2. Since this is open to all of our crafty friends around the world, if you do not wish to send the headband to an International location, please let me know. I might create a U.S. only list. (the cost to ship this should be relatively inexpensive. The headbands fit in a medium size jewelry box and weight almost nothing).

3. As soon as you have taken your picture, upload your photo share to our flickr site. (details to be provided to participants).

4. If interested in having a chance to win an awesome RAK, upload your project to The Creative Soup (details to be provided to participants).

5. Once all participants are confirmed, you will receive an email from me with the details of the person coming after you in the list. So not to share everyone’s addresses with everyone else, I will leave the shipping communication between participants.

6. We would like to finish the mailing/sharing/uploading within a month or two…but this is dependent on the number of participants. We will provide the deadline for the upload and for the project share in a separate communication to all participants.

Sound fun? We think so. :confetti:

So get on your thinking caps…err…I mean, headbands, and let’s see those pictures!!!
