A Call for Halloween Designs and Fresh Picks

Posted by Steve on October 06 at 01:28 pm

Here’s to all the creepy creatives on the Lima Beads site… we want to have a little fun this Halloween, starting with collecting some Fresh Picks and Designs that are scary, spooky, or just plain fun like those odd-shaped pumpkins carved with big silly faces. We’ll be featuring these Fresh Picks and Designs on at our Halloween HQ for the rest of the month. We think it’s going to be a cool source of October inspiration!

Here’s how to participate…

To join the fun, start by designing a Fresh Pick or uploading one of your beading designs to our Design Gallery. There’s an easy way to specify that your new pick or design should go on the Halloween 2011 page. If you’re uploading a design in the Design Gallery, you’ll see the following option when filling out the entry form:

If you’re designing a Fresh Pick, first finishing adding all the items to your pick. Then go to the My Fresh Picks page. You’ll see a choice next to each of your picks that allows you to choose the Halloween promotion. Just like the bottom of this example:

You can always go back and choose the Halloween promo later, so don’t feel like you need to finish everything in one sitting. One last thing… only picks that area created in September and October 2011 will be featured on the Halloween HQ page. No fair using “creativity of old” this season :)

As always, feel free to ask any questions in the comments. And have fun!

    qltldy10, I think I can help here. If you go to the Fresh Picks section of our site, and click “My Fresh Picks” over on the right, you should see the list of picks you’ve created–including your Spooky pick. Right by your Spooky pick, you should see the words “Seasonal Promo: None” and you can click the word “None” to change it to the Halloween entry.

    Let me know if this helps!

    OK Steve, I need a little help, please!

    I’ve tried to add 3 different Fresh Picks to the Halloween promo but I’m not seeing them. I’ve clicked on the promo next to them and it says Halloween 2011 on ‘My Fresh Picks’ page but I don’t see them in the Halloween HQ.
    Am I supposed to choose only one?

    Hi Mary, I think I can help here. It looks like you did everything right on your end, but the Halloween HQ only shows the 15 most recent picks–with a link at the bottom to view ALL halloween picks. Your picks are behind the link to view them all.

    Let me know if this solves your problem! If not, we’ll keep digging! :)

    Thanks Steve!!! :-D
    I see them now! They weren’t there earlier. I guess it took a little while for them to show up in the Halloween HQ.

    Steve, I’m having a tough time… do I put ghosts in the tree, or tree spirits?

    Never mind, I like the tree spirit’s better, and I got them from the Green Machine!!! They work just as well for Halloween, all those little faces looking out at you!

Add your thoughts!
