Fresh Pick Challenge: Halloween 2011Posted by Matt on October 26 at 09:55 am
It seems like this is becoming somewhat of a Halloween tradition around here. To keep you busy during Scream Week, we decided to resurrect the Fresh Pick Challenge! There will be 4 prizes, one for the winner 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 Fresh Picks so unique. Creating the best possible color & texture 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 spooky colors. You can use things like your favorite Halloween candy, a costume that you remember wearing when you were younger, or even your favorite horror flick for inspiration.
- 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. It could be a scary story, a tale about your favorite childhood Halloween memory, or anything else your creative mind comes up with
- 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!
With the exception of the people’s choice winner, the Lima Beads team will choose the winners of each category. We’re excited!
The winner of each category will receive a $25 Lima Beads gift certificate. Also, there is a special prize for the winner of People’s Choice: A beautiful assortment of gemstone beads, pendants and pearls!
If you can’t quite tell from the photo, there’s Carnelian, Amethyst, Kyanite, Amazonite, Peru Rhodochrosite and more!
When you’re ready to submit your Pick, just select it from the drop-down menu in the comment form below. You’ll be able to choose from your 10 most recent picks. Choose 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.
- All Picks must be submitted as a comment on this blog post by Monday, October 31st at midnight.
Here’s the Tricky Part
You have to use at least one product from ONE of these categories:
|Czech Glass Coins|
|Luster Silver Crystal|
|Red Creek Jasper|
IMPORTANT: You DO NOT have to include one product from each category! We’re not that cruel.
We’re not done yet! You also need to include at least one product from our Artist Beads section. We have hundreds of artist beads and we think they’re the most creative beads in our entire shop. They should help to inspire some awesome picks!
All you have to do is create a new Fresh Pick and upload it in your comment below. Time to pick!
