May Monthly Challenge- "Spring At Last!"

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

It's finally Spring, and to honor the excitement and blossoming of life of the season, May's challenge theme is "Spring At Last!" Enter any items that meet your interpretation of what "Spring" represents, i.e., colors, images, scents, themes, materials. The challenge theme is very subjective, so enter whatever handmade creations, vintage goods, or supplies, new or already listed in your shop, that 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 living consciously; and to raise awareness about the ease of eco-friendly living and the rights of animals to live free of exploitation by making . Here's how to enter...

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

*Challenge Guidelines*

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

~Entry involves simply posting applicable items in your shop with the tag "pleasestopraining" (one word, without the quotations). You must also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team."

~Deadline for entry is May 31st.

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

~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 "pleasestopraining" 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!)
