Dabbled Summer Doldrums Contest

[27 Jun 2008 | By | 25 Comment(s) | 3,590 views ]

I think it’s time for another Dabbled contest. We can’t wait all the way to halloween, can we? Cuz you know there is going to be a killer Halloween contest.

Remember the Black Heart Anti-Valentine’s Day contest and the April Fool Contest!?

But until then…
The theme is Summer Doldrums. Beat the heat (or cold, if you’re in that part of the world)! Arts & Crafts that celebrate summer, particularly stuff for kids (or for kids at heart). Accepted are: artwork, crafts, & tutorials. I’m going to ask some of our past winners to be judges this time (unless they want to enter themselves!). There will be prizes (TBA, but they will include both fun kids stuff & original artwork… Plus the fame and fortune that comes with links back to your blog! If you’d like to donate a prize — let me know -dot-at-dabbled-org-). Spread the word, the more the merrier!

Post links to your entry here.
(edit) Deadline will be July 31!
