ANNOUNCING A NEW "SHOWCASE" FEATURE ON CUTE AND SOME

Hello, everyone.  Hope your Friday is winding down softly.

I am announcing a new feature coming to Cute and Some.  Beginning  April 12, 2010 and every following Monday, this blog will showcase two (2) participants creative and crafty projects.  The projects can be whatever you choose to make, however, the projects must be new and not have been posted prior to the Sunday evening before the showcase Monday.  Each participant will receive an award to place on your their blog that has been designed especially for them by either myself or another blogger. 
The purpose of this showcase is to feature projects to be seen by other bloggers and/or visitors and to give visable recognition for your work(s), to offer support, and to inspire other crafters.  If you are a new blogger, you may be particularly interested.  Additionally, your designed award will also give acknowledgment by being placed on your blog to the award designer.

Please note, this is not a challenge nor is it a contest.  It is only a means of having somewhere else to show  your projects and get recognized/awarded just for your participation.  Hopefully, it will also draw more attention to our blogsites and promote visitors (hits) and following.  If you are interested in being a participant and/or award designer, please leave a comment under this post.
 
Once the showcases begin, participants will be notified and will be required to link to their project URL.  I am currently looking into a source for you to be able to do this and, as "Mr. Linky" seems to be pretty popular, this is one of the first options I'm looking at.  Once commited to a source, you will be able to sign on for entry on my sidebar at the designated source.  I will let you know.

This is just a start of what I hope will be something  "special".  Although all of the details are still being considered and all the wrinkles ironed out, I think there are more than a few of you who would like to get going on this. Therefore, until a link source has been established, again, if you're interested please leave your comment including your participation as either a showcase contributor or award designer.

Finally, although the showcases will be sponsored here, I am considering this a group effort; so if I don't hear from you, I'll be getting in touch with some of you for whatever input I can get.  If you have any comments and/or suggestions, they will be welcomed and considered.  I will keep you informed of all refined details and specifics.

I hope these showcases will be fun experiences as well as encouraging and supportive.  And, thank you!

I'll be seeing you!

Audrey,
Such a nice idea. Maybe in a few months I will be good enough to be a guest designer on your blog. Will you be having a different theme weekly? I am always at a loss for special occASION CARDS LIKE MOTHERS dAY, fATHERS dAY, Easter, sympathy, cakes, birthday.I cannot wait for you to get started.When I get really good and can put in a bid for a designer I would like to feature Forever young cartridge. I am always thinking loud. I wish you luck.

Sounds interesting!! I am focusing on catching my son's album up to date. I am out of order and have only Christmas left to scrap - I always take too many photos during the holidays!!

When I clear my plate, I will get to designing!!!
