Design team call ...

Hello all!  So happy to be coming back to this space to play along again, now that life has settled down again and I have time to devote to playing along with you!

I am looking for a design team to inspire us with your work.

We have two challenges a month - one is a prompt, and the other is a sketch.  I send out the prompts/sketches well ahead, and I ask that you participate in as many challenges as you can, and that you provide me with your sample a full 2 days ahead of the blog reveal so that I can post them to the blog by 6 am EST the morning of the reveal.

I ask also that you also visit as many of the participant's blogs as you can every challenge.

We always have a friendly bunch here, design team and players. We have a "Monday's Mentions" feature where we post about any good things we see about our team and players, a "Fave Fridays" feature where we post interesting links, and a "Shining Stars on the Seventh" where we feature work from the children of our friends who play along or design with us.

Please send me a link to your blog, a bit of your design team or publication experience (if you have any), and any other information that you think would be interesting.  My e-mail address is anne.pennington@xplornet.com

Deadline 6 February, 2014.

Happy New Year - and watch this space!!!

Happy New Year all.  I've been missing you all, and have found life somewhat calmed down.  I'd like to re-open here to play some more with you all.

I miss posting "monday's mentions" - and letting everyone know all your triumphs!!  I miss sharing the happy news here with everyone whenever I see any of you featured somewhere.

I hope that you'll share what your children are designing with us all for our "shining stars on the seventh" feature.

Don't forget to share cool links to amazing designs, tutorials, and just good fun stuff with us for our "fave fridays" feature.

Most of all - I miss what you share about YOU.  It's nice to have prompts that inspire us to share our own stories - about our youth, our dreams, and our NOW.

I'll be looking for some design team members.  Send a link to your blog and a bit about your experience/design teams - or anything you think would be interesting to anne.pennington@xplornet.com
