Fresh Pick Challenge: Valentine’s Day

Posted by Matt on February 11 at 11:16 am

heartWe love Valentine’s Day so much around here, that we wanted to give you all a special Valentine surprise. We’re introducing the first ever, official Fresh Pick Challenge! Some dedicated Lima Beaders came up with this idea last year and we thought it looked like lots of fun. The theme for this contest is Valentine’s Day!

We’re giving away $25 gift certificates to the winners of each of the following categories:

  • Best Composition: The overall composition is one of the most important qualities of a beautiful Fresh Pick. It’s what makes our Fresh Picks so unique. Creating the best possible product arrangement is key to winning this category.
  • Best Use of Color: When it comes to beading, is there anything more important than color? It doesn’t necessarily have to be all pinks, reds and purples. Maybe your favorite romantic movie, love song, or the restaurant of your first date inspires you!
  • Most Creative Title: Some of the names you all come up with are truly amazing! Although we’re focusing on the title in this category, it’s important that your picks suit the name.
  • Best Story: We know how you love to write stories to go along with your Fresh Picks. That’s why we’re going to read each and every description that you take the time to write. But please, try to keep it as short as you can! I have the feeling that we’re going to have a lot of story-tellers submitting their picks.
  • People’s Choice: We want our Pickers to make the call! The Fresh Pick with the most favorites will win this prize. Even if you’re not submitting a pick, be sure to add your favorite fresh picks to, well, your favorites!

It’s now easier than ever to add one of your Fresh Picks to your blog comments! When you’re ready to submit your Pick, just select it from the drop-down menu in the comment form below. You’ll see your 10 most recent picks. Chose the one that you’d like to submit to the contest and “Voila!” Not sure what a Fresh Pick is? Find out on the Design Your Own Fresh Picks page!

Let me lay down a few ground rules before you get started:

  • Only one (1) submision allowed per person. If you make multiple submissions, only your most recent one will be counted.
  • You must create a pick specifically for this contest. We all love recycling too, but we want to see some awesome new picks!
  • All Picks must be submitted as a comment on this blog post by Sunday, February 14th at midnight.

Here’s the Tricky Part

You have to use at least one product from ANY of these stones:

Impression Jasper Beads Impression Jasper
China Chrysoprase Beads China Chyrsoprase
Bronzite Beads Bronzite

IMPORTANT: You DO NOT have to include one product of each stone! We’re not that cruel. :)

All you have to do is create a new Fresh Pick and upload it in your comment below. Now, get Picking!

    What a fun new contest! My pick may not look like a Valentine pick at all, but to me it is. I have a very happy memory of boat ride my boyfriend Ronald and I made in the southwest of Ireland in 2006. We went to see the garden island Garinish Island and along the way spotted seals and enjoyed the lovely weather. The boat was turquoise/blue (which happens to be my favourite colour) and there’s a photo of the two of us on it which afterwards I posted on the website Flickr and called it ‘Happiness is a small blue boat’. This pick is inspired by that boat trip.

    Ok, this is my first pick and it is kind of funny that is little challenge came out. My daughters teacher has had a rough spell and loves pink so I threw a quick bracelet together last night with a little silver and all different pink beads, so my pick refelects that with a few added options for a nice 3 strand or whatever. Anyway a pick inspired by making my friend and hard working teacher have brighter V-day!!

  66. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Okay, here’s mine!

    For me and my husband, lilies have always kind of been “our flower” since day one – on our first Valentine’s Day we both unknowingly sent each other a bouquet of stargazer lilies, and he has sent me that same bouquet every year for Valentine’s Day ever since. One of my sweetest romantic memories of him is when we were driving in the pouring rain and he stopped the car just to pick me some tiger lilies from the side of the road because I mentioned how beautiful they were. Two years ago, I even got a tattoo of a lily to symbolize our love and our connection with lilies. So that’s what inspired this pick – the beauty that I find in lilies and in the sweet, caring things that my husband does for me.

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    OK. I think is the one I’ll choose.
    I just LOVE chocolate and this kind of takes care of my sweet tooth!
    It also reminds me of the day when my husband and I first met. While hanging out with friends, he very sweetly asked me “Do you want some candy little girl?” (Not in a derogatory way, mind you.)
    He made me smile. That was 23 years ago. I still love him LOTS!!!

    Back in Boston (where I used to live), there’s a group of old-fashioned ice cream parlors called Brigham’s. They used to have a fountain drink on their menu called a Lime Rickey and it was totally delish. I’ve added a touch of rasberry to mine, cuz I can never leave well enough alone. :)

    Dear Lima Bead folks,

    Thanks for yet another way fun contest!
    So here’s mine: it is dedicated to both my dad – he just got out of a rehab facility after the holidays, and is doing much better. Then there’s my cousin Eloise, who is adjusting to a chronic long term illness. While it’s never easy to bear illnesses and other stresses in our lives, thank you to all of my loved ones and friends who have supported me over the years – including many of you here! Yikes – my most recent Picks, including the one I had hoped to submit, “Sound of Your Voice Singing” isn’t popping up on the “Picks” list!! :(

    My Valentine’s pick: Greensleeves. Greensleeves has always been a song I’ve liked and there’s the legend (or myth) that Henry VIII wrote it for Anne Boleyn. Tudor England is one of my favorite historical periods.

    Sorry–I’m new to posting Fresh Picks. It’s also my first contest as I am new to the site.

    What is that yellow spotcrawling up my arm? Is it an ant? a fly? NO! It’s a love bug! Should I gently remove it and let it soar to the highest heights of greens and purples? Or, do I grab a rolled up newspaper and finish it off quick and painless lea ing nothing but pink hues ….decisions, decisions. Well, here he comes, late again. Where’s that newspaper?

  87. Bella Chick aka Chill
    Bella Chick aka C Hill says:

    Our emotions were swirling around like an abalone-filled ocean, hearts were charmed and all aflutter, so many feelings growing as fast as a green meadow in springtime, our faces had a blushing, berry pink glow…could this new love ring eternal? Yes…for over 39 years!

    Look inside an old photo album, and you’ll find a family valentine. Faces of love stare out from every page…a grandmother and grandfather in sepia wedding day splendor – a celebration of love. A locket passed from mother to daughter, capturing a moment of love in a photograph. Baby pictures with innocent faces reflecting the glow of their parents’ loving care. Remind your loved ones this year of the valentine that grows stronger with time…family.

    and my cousin Eloise, who is adjusting to living with a chronic illness, and returned to work last year after many months trying to figure what’s going on, she is very courageous and has a great network of support – coworkers, friends, family

    and to all the LB chickies here, who have loved ones in your lives that you are concerned about. Thank you all, for all the encouragement and support you have provided me! :8 8O

    ShadesofVictoriana says:

    I love “Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams, a touching play about many things, love included. I tried to capture one of the many themes frailty of the individual vs. the stone cold world of outside. I took Jim’s nick name for Laura as the title and chose elements to signify Laura’s glass collection and her romanticized world versus that of the harsh reality in that Jim really never was a true gentleman caller. This is one play that really shows so many sides of love.

  115. Bonnie R

    Mine is called The River Runs. I think with these you could make a flow of gems like a river running from warm blue to cool green, with ice chips forming and turning into glaciers of rock crystal. The river flowers over boulders and pebbles, shaping and leaving beautiful marks.
