It's All Hearts and Flowers for February's Team Challenge!

You are cordially invited to play, get more involved with the team, get inspired, share your talent, take advantage of some free promotion... and get loveydovey for February's team creative challenge!

February's monthly challenge is all about a "hearts and flowers" theme! We can't wait to see your entries inspired by romance and love of all types (yes, puppy/kitty and veggie lovin' count)! :D The challenge is very open to interpretation, so enter whatever handmade creations, vintage goods, or supplies, new or already listed in your shop, fit the theme for you! ;)

The EtsyVeg monthly challenge is meant to inspire, recognize, and promote team members and our shops; to spread the word about vegan/vegetarian lifestyles; and to raise awareness about the rights of animals to live free of exploitation. Here's how to enter...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Challenge Guidelines*

~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member. Members of Cruelty-FreeEtsy and VeganEtsy are also invited to join (spread the word)!

~Entry involves simply posting applicable items in your shop with the tag "veggieheart" (one word, without the quotations). If you are a member, you must also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team."

~Deadline for entry is February 28th.

~At least one entry per participant will be featured in the EtsyVeg blog at the very beginning of March.

~All team members (not just participants) are invited throughout the month to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make treasuries by doing a tag search for "etsyveg team" with "veggieheart" and putting only those items in the treasury, or to generate other types of promotion. (If you do any of these, please let everyone know so that we can all post or click to keep it going!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Members, we are now taking suggestions for team-challenge themes for March, April, and May. Post any ideas to the Google discussion group for voting.

~*Happy creating!*~
