Creativity Unleashed #116

Welcome to Creativity Unleashed!

Hello friends!  As you read this I am attending a blogging conference called SNAP!  This is my third year attending and I LOVE it!  

Right after SNAP I am headed to run the Boston Marathon with my sister!  Woo Hoo!!  We have been wanting to run it for so many years and it FINALLY worked out!  

That is why things are a little quite around here this past week, I have been CR-A-zy!   But I have two awesome projects to share next week so come back!  

Now onto the party!  Our giveaway is a very awesome Hand Lettered Basswood Nursery Sign by One Artsy Mama!   What is super cool is that you can pick the name or phrase if you win and you will have your own custom piece!  

If you're new here, Creativity Unleashed is a place for you find some inspiration and show off your own creativity! At the bottom of this post you'll find hundreds of links to amazing projects, recipes, crafts, and tutorials, so if you're looking for ideas for your next project, you've come to the right place!

The party starts Thursdays at 7pm ET and runs through the weekend. It’s hosted by Practically Functional, One Project Closer, The DIY Village, Here Comes The Sun, One Artsy Mama, and My Love 2 Create. If you're a blogger and want to share your own recent projects, you only have to link up once to be seen on all six blogs! That's six times the exposure for each of your projects! Plus, every week, each host will pick a Rockstar from the projects that were linked up that week, for a total of six Rockstars. Then we will open up voting for MEGA Rockstar of the week. Make sure to scroll down and vote for your favorite project below, and the project with the most votes will be the MEGA Rockstar of the week!

On to the features, you guys are so awesome and creative!!  They are good ones!!

So who will be this week's Mega Rockstar?!

Besides the awesome title of "Mega Rockstar of the week", here's what the winner will receive:

  • Tons of exposure from everyone who casts a vote in the contest! (All six Rockstars for the week will get this!)
  • Each of the six Rockstar projects will be pinned to the Creativity Unleashed Fabulous Features Pinterest board! (All six Rockstars get this too!)
  • The MEGA Rockstar project will be featured on all of our social media networks (that's FB, Twitter, Pinterest, and G+ shoutouts from six different bloggers!!!)
  • Each host will visit the MEGA Rockstar's blog that week and we'll pin a bucketload of any other great content we find to some of our largest group boards!
  • The MEGA Rockstar of the week will get an invite to our secret group Pinterest board where you can pin your own great content. We go through that board each week when we are looking for great, new content to pin, so this means that even months after you've won the MEGA Rockstar of the week, we can still find and pin your newest awesome content!
  • The MEGA Rockstar will be invited to our MEGA Rockstars Facebook group where we discuss, collaborate, and help promote each other!   
So pick your favorite project from the Rockstars above, and let the voting begin! We can’t wait to see which project is your favorite! I will announce the winner on Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday morning, so keep an eye out for that!
