It's me again, guys!  Here my mind goes again tornado-ing!!!  I was trying to think of creative ways to keep my all followers occupied and interested so as not to become bored; somewhere in all those thoughts (lol!)  I ended up thinking how nice it would be to have a weekly showcase -- but something a bit different! 

Here's are my thoughts: you would post one of your projects every week-- sort of like a designer week -- here on my blog (of course we'll have to determine and limit the contributors each week).  It wouldn't be a challenge of any sort, just somewhere else to show your projects so others who may not otherwise visit your blog and do visit mine will get an opportunity to see your creativity here.   I know other bloggers are doing somthing similar with having guest designers but why not have an actual  and very special crafted award to show/post to your blog for your efforts--  just for showcasing them!  So the twist here would be each project contributor would be awarded a "Showcase Contributor" award to post on their blog which I,or if you'd like, each of you (group participation) could design to award to a showcase contributor.  Our designed awards to the contributor would be credited to the designer of the award; therefore, once the awardee(s) posts their award(s), you're being acknowledged also on someone elses blog.

I know a lot of us have a quite a few lurkers and nothing can "peak" and interest and/or beats word-of-mouth than if we're doing something different and innovative.  Maybe even draw these "outside" friends in.  Besides I love fun and I think this would be loads of fun!!!  I think it might just be an attention-getter too!

I welcome and would appreciate any thoughts and/or suggestions!  I look forward to your help because I'd  want everybody to be involved, to be a part of this!  I would like to see this be "our" thing!

Let me know your thoughts!

I'll be seeing you!

sounds good
we do that at a couple other sites and you get eh option to drop a link ... and other (lurkers) can peek and click as they will.

Kind of like a directory of the week so to speak.
I'm in

Audrey...I have to tell you I was just thinking about something similar last week. You go ahead and do yours and I was planning to do mine after the Wild Card project. I think it is a great idea! Count me in!!!
