I'm letting the cat out of the bag!
Or maybe....it's the box!
One of Meep's favorite toys is SARI RIBBON:
He loves to drape himself in it and then fight to get out. It can be hysterical.
Due to those antics, and the fact that everyone seems to love our sari ribbon, I thought it might be cool to have a blog hop featuring jewelry pieces that incorporate it, this fall.
We've had a number of challenges with Five and Dime Style at B'sue Boutiques, but this is our VERY FIRST blog hop! The date is Friday, October 14th. The rules are VERY simple:
1. Your entry must be a piece of jewelry, and it must have some sari ribbon in it. That might be:
a cuff you have woven out of it
a necklace with a neckline treatment that incorporates it
a cuff wrapped with sari
bezels tied with sari
sari ribbon accents on chain
flowers made of sari
....those are just a few ideas. You do what you want. YOU ARE THE DESIGNER. But it can't be a jacket, a purse, a decorator item......IT HAS TO BE A PIECE OF JEWELRY. And it has to be sari ribbon (although you can also incorporate other ribbons into the piece, as well). That means it will be a:
or....hair jewelry will be accepted.
The sari ribbon and components do NOT have to be purchased from B'sue Boutiques, but of course, I'd be lying if I didn't say I appreciate your patronage. LOL
The sari is found here at B'sue Boutiques
http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/Sari-Ribbon-7550 don't worry if the inventory is showing low....we have LOTS more. Just let me know! I'll fix it.
2. YOU MUST HAVE A BLOG. I'm not going to be able to sponsor photos on my blog---except Meep's!
To be honest, if you don't have a blog, maybe this is just the impetus you need to get one started. If you sell your work, you are really remiss if you aren't using a blog to feature your work and talk about it. It's a valuable asset. Many blog formats, like BLOGGER, are free! They are also simple to set up.
3. When you commit to being a participant, I will save your name and your blog URL to a Word document. The day before the hop (13th) I will post the participants and their URLS here at this blog. Everyone who has signed up will have the responsibility to come and get the list and post it on THEIR blog, along with their photos and whatever they want to say about their entry, on their blogs EARLY AS POSSIBLE on October 14.
Having the list on your blog with your entry is ESSENTIAL for the hop to work. That's what a blog hop is, you hop from blog to blog to look at the entries. So if you don't post the list, it won't be fair to the rest. ;-)
As much as possible, you will want to leave a comment about others' blog hop entries, when you visit their blogs on that day, too.
Meep is a little perplexed about what to make, but we'll help him out.
After the hop is over, I'll give out a couple of 25.00 gift certificates to B'sue Boutiques, chosen by random drawing.
I'm hoping we can get about 25-30 participants, but it's on even if there are only five. This is gonna be a great time! Let me know if you're going to play along!
